Who watched Roots?

I did, but I'm usually a lover of originals, more so than remakes. I did like Kunta, but I'm not so sure about Fiddler. I'll keep watching.

    We DVRd it because DH wanted to watch the basketball game. I can't wait til he gets home to turn it on. Did you think it was worth the time, even as a remake? I saw the original too long ago to remember.

  • I think it is worth the time. We can discuss after you watch tonight.

    History, I think, but we saw it on Lifetime?  I read Roots back in the day, and then saw the miniseries, but I really need to go back and read/watch it again.  I don't really remember too much, although I am getting a strong sense of déjà vu from this remake, so I guess it's fairly similar.

    I have mixed feelings about it.  There's something about it I can't put my finger on, and it's quite possible it's a mental thing (trying to compare apples to apples).  I can't say I liked Fiddler much.
