If someone wants to watch this miniseries and doesn't have cable....

It is available on Netflix!  The hubby and I watched it weekly on Netflix, and it's available as "play it now"  :)

Ok... I am one who has ready the book and the following book "World Without End" and I still loved the series.   I thought the casting was unbelieveably perfect (just a little off on William Hamley for me) but everyone else was perfectly as I imagined them.  I also didn't mind at all the changes they made in the story to move it along more quickly.  Adding the ring thing and Jack's near death experience really didn't bother me at all.   It summed up kind of quickly in the last episode but again.... didn't take away from the spirit of the book and just helped rush you into understanding the characters rather than discovering their personality slowly like in the book. Well done in my opinion.

Finally able to sit down and get the first two epidodes under our belt... Superb.  Amy's comments are right on target.
