Re: North and South (1985)

I have forgotten..what was the beef between Bent and Charlie Main? I haven't read the books but before the third miniseries I don't remember those two characters interacting.
If no one comes from the future to stop you from doing it, then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Re: North and South (1985)

They didn't interact in the TV adaptation of Books 1 and 2, that just came outta nowhere like Cooper Main did. Completely disorienting!

So does anyone know if Patrick Swayze refused to take part in the third part which is why they killed off Orry in such an absurd manner, or did they plan to do that anyway and Swayze refused to participate (justifiably)?

Having George and Madeline end up together at the end was kind of revolting. It was like the writer/producers took a hatchet to their spouses to arrange that, and Bent was the hatchet.
