Not worth a dime...,
This review is from: Titanic (ITV) [DVD] (DVD)I was looking forward to watching this one. 1912, The Titanic and elegant sets...what more can you ask for? Well, to be honest, I was expecting a lot more. This was the worst nonsense I've seen ever since that zombie-faced heir returned to Downton Abbey (from the Titanic, ironically) in season two of that series. This smells too much Julian Fellowes. The first season of Downton Abbey was actually very good, but the second one reminded me more a cheap soap than a quality period drama. Unfortunately, this miniseries resembles more the second season of DA than the first one. Trivial, dull dialogue, cheap characters, ludicrous stereotypes and not particularly impressing sets or effects. I recommend you not to waste your money on this product. Sleeping pills come cheaper.

Can't believe so many negative reviews for a product that hasn't even been released yet, and hasn't been seen through to the end by anybody yet! This is a dramatization of a real life event - what are you expecting, Di Caprio and Winslet again?

I don't know if you have seen the miniseries but it has already been shown on television here in Norway. I've seen it all, and it was quite a disappointment. What has the fact that it is based on a real life event got to do with this being a very bad miniseries? The problem is that the script and the characters are dull and dreary. I don't understand your argument. And no, I was not to any extent expecting DiCaprio and Winslet again, in which case I can reassure you that I would not watch it in the first place.

When your 3 quarters of the way through a mini series, I see no problem in passing comment especially when that 3 quarters has been so dire. Yes we all know that Titanic sunk, and as such is a "real life event" but the central characters in this series were fictional, so in that respect you did get more Di Caprio and Winslet, and that was what we were told we were not going to get. There have been many good, factual, programmes shown over the last week or so marking the centenary of this tragic event, this was most definitely not one of them

as many say a night to remember is the one to beat and the blu ray release is imo the most fitting triubte to the sinking of the titanic anniversary
also just looked at amazon re night to remember its gone to 5 to 7 day delivery time so all i can say is it must be selling like hot cakes wheras i think a lot of this new itv series will remain on the shelf
shame seeing as a night to remember is also by itv in terms of distribution and restoration
so 10/10 for that but your flagship new series is well sad to say not worth the money
