I think I was eleven or twelve years old. I was at a friend's house in the suburbs, and the miniseries was playing on some basic cable channel, three years or so after it aired. We didn't have cable, and I only remember a few scenes from this part, like when Kent took refuge in the Tory cabin after getting a fever after suffering frostbite. I swore to myself that I'd watch the whole thing one day. I'm sorry that I swore this to myself. "The Bastard" was okay; at least Andrew Stevens had amazing hair. "The Rebels" is horrible, and Stevens is wearing a bad wig. What happened?
