PostSubject: The Pillars of the Earth   Thu Jul 29, 2010 7:01 pm

A new show from Starz, which aired the first two episodes last week. I just finished watching the first episode and it was really really good...


The Pillars of the Earth Website


Quote :

This epic tale of passion and greed begins when a mysterious secret disrupts the succession to the English crown and an unlikely member of King Henry’s family takes the throne. A power struggle between Henry’s daughter, Maud, and nephew, Stephen, causes England to be torn by war as battles rage for the rightful heir. Meanwhile, Bishop Waleran Bigod and the Hamleigh family manipulate the conflict to satisfy their own ruthless ambitions. Within this tumultuous setting, Prior Philip fights insurmountable obstacles to keep Kingsbridge and his dream of building a magnificent cathedral alive. The task is daunting, but master-mason Tom Builder, his gifted stepson, Jack, and noblewoman Aliena work together to achieve their dreams. And in the process, the long-hidden secret is revealed.



You can DL episode 1 & 2 via torrents here, and new episodes from the same site @EZTV after they air Friday nights at 10pm!~

I love this show. I do not watch much TV but the series that come on HBO, Starz and Showtime tend to be what I watch when they do come on.

Looks like it's worth checking out. Nice find.

"There are some things that can beat smartness and foresight? Awkwardness and stupidity can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot."  -Mark Twain

I read the book "Pillars Of The Earth", the pillars were very heavy Onigiri XD it took a while to read it (around 1300 pages). Ken Follet is the author, the followup is called "World Without End" - also worth reading (1200 pages).
