Oh the art of the necropost...something I usually avoid..BUT...
I started watching this miniseries last night. I had to have the DVD's sent to me by netflix...one at a time. So yes, I have seen the first two episodes and I am in complete awe of the inspiration that this mini-series has built in me to make me a medieval castle, instead of my normal desert castles. (Yes, the Queen of Tan did say that...shocking I know.)
As everyone above has said, it is a good movie for inspiration. Now this isn't a mini-series I would recommend for anyone under age (you decide what that is..I'm not defining that for you), but I would recommend it. It has delicious conspiracies, wicked evil people who sometimes get their proper punishment, good people you can root for, heartbreak, tear jerking moments, heartfelt moments, and just about anything you could ask from it.
I guess this means I need to start stockpiling some greys/bleys or whatever.

Any building, is good building. Build for the fun of it!
