The Pillars of the Earth

TV Network - Starz

There was a moment when it was being hypothesized that Matthew Macfadyen would be the next James Bond (the role went to Daniel Craig at that time instead).  That's neither here nor there except that Macfadyen plays an integral role in this adaptation of Ken Follett's bestseller of the same name.  This has been quite the adaptation as well, going for eight hour-long episodes (the last two are tonight) and bringing together a pretty swell cast including the aforementioned Matthew Macfadyen (whom we first fell in love with when he starred in "Spooks" which is what we call that series despite what others in this country refer to it as).

Are you excited for these last two episodes?  We certainly are.
