Good Drama! Quite Satisfied!, 16 April 2012
The ABC just aired Titanic in the US this weekend, 3 hours on Saturday and 1 final hour on Sunday. It is a very satisfying experience watching this mini series. Julian Fellows is a big name in the US, since Downton Abbey. The show has a strong cast and they truly delivered a good drama. When the show ended I felt I wanted to know more of them.
I am surprised to read those negative reviews on Amazon. Surely this mini series cannot be compared with the 1997 film version in terms of the technical scale. It's not a Hollywood blockbuster to begin with. This mini series is character driven, about people, from 1st class to 3rd, and their stories. The ship itself is in the distant background.
If you expect to see some grand visual effects, go see James Cameron's Titanic. If you want some character driven stories, this mini series will do just fine.
