Agree completely.I finally saw this on dvd and I enjoyed it. I thought it started to go off the rails in episode 5 or 6 but it got back on track and I thought they did a good job with it. I thought the actor that played Bill was fantastic. As far as Bill's expanded role in the mini series,many had a problem with it but I liked the character as someone for Jake to bounce his ideas off of. There had to be a character there for that to avoid a lot of voice over.
