I just watch the sneak preview of Pillars of the Earth the first two episodes. The historical discrepancies are glaring but to most people I dare say it won't matter. As usual they condense to dramatize. But they even changed key points in the book. Other than that I am certain that it will be well received. I am not here to nit pick. I will watch the rest. The sets are great the acting wonderful. Maude in mail was going a bit far I think but the symbolism in it was no doubt necessary to the film makers.
Update you can watch it on line! http://www.starz.com/originals/thepillarsoftheearth/screeningroom#/episode-101-anarchy

I really like the the miniseries. My kids love it too. I did not care fhe book the detail was enough to choke a goat but the mini series is catching the high points of the book. I think it is very well cast too. The actors are doing a good job with it, and the setting is lovely.
