Default Lonesome Dove

MAN was there ever a better made for TV (mini)series? It was on Encore Western all afternoon and I jumped in about an hour or so into it for probably the 5th or 6th time I have seen it . Gets me every time

I watched it when it first came out years ago. Loved Spring Renfro.

Outstanding book even at over 850 pages. My favorite western and yep, even the TV miniseries was good too.

I'll hoist one to John Wayne and Robert Duvall. Two of my very favorites.

You should read the book. It's even better - though I will say they did a damn good job on the mini series. It very closely resembles the story line in the book with just a few things missing. The exceptional cast in the mini series more than made up it.

Life is short. Shorter for some than others.

Seen it countless times, best western ever, hands down. My kids are carrying on the tradition of watching it at least once a year.
