Review - The Pillars of the Earth Part 1 Anarchy / 2 Master Builder

The Pillars of the Earth, based on Ken Follett's novel of the same name, isn't fun to watch. The setting is eternally dreary, the acting ranges from inspired to plain bad, and the plot trudges along slowly as characters are piled upon more characters.

However, the above-average production value and the unique time period are enough to make the miniseries perfectly watchable. Since it's on a Friday and it'll be ending in a few months, I won't be writing long reviews on The Pillars of the Earth, but I'll be watching with at least a passing interest.

Score: 8.4/10
