My rating is based on the reduced footage from the original series and is not related to the cast performance in the miniseries. The miniseries is recommended for viewing, however I include some caveats with this version. The USA broadcast of Charles II was edited from the original 233 minutes down to 188 minutes. If you wish to see a more complete version of the miniseries, you will see it by getting the BBC DVD of "Charles II - The power and passion" (the UK version in region 2 coding) and NOT the "Last King" version. The other DVD version is not available in Region 1 (USA) format and will require either a non-region DVD player or a computer with a video program player that ignores region coding. You can find copies of that version on other sites like Amazon. The A&E version is more "sanitized" than the BBC UK version (several topless scenes were removed). If you want to see the entire complete series, get the BBC UK Region 2 DVD. Otherwise, this USA Region 1 program will be missing about 45 minutes of footage.
