Sometimes family gatherings can be stressful. (Okay, maybe all the time.) However, I like watching fictional families muck it up even worse. The Forsyte Saga is a wonderful miniseries to get sucked into. The acting and costumes are superb and I kind of loved how they would jump forward by years and years now and then. Very satisfactory watching.
I give it an 8. I will so be picking up the second part of this miniseries early on in 2010.
