The Pillars of the Earth

<p>Ian McShane stars in 'The Pillars of the Earth.'</p>

This miniseries comes to us based on Ken Follett's work.  They've gone out and gotten a great cast to portray said pillars, the only question now is if the stars will be successful with the heavy-lifting; can Ian McShane, Donald Sutherland, and the rest successfully put the weight of this miniseries on their shoulders?  Yes, we're asking the ultimate question - can these actors and actresses be the titular pillars we need them to be?  Will their tale of English crown intrigue truly enthrall all of us?  Starz certainly thinks so, it is, after all, airing on Encore at the same exact time which is nothing if not a vote of confidence.
