    Do mini-series count? My favorites were The Blue and the Gray, all three North and South and Winds of War (own them all on DVD).

    Getting to the cheesy factor, Star (starring Jennie Garth) always seems to be on tv when I'm clicking channels.

    I think Roots, The Stand and the ones speedbunp mentioned were good too.

    And also Rich man, Poor man.

    I don't have any favorite Made-For-TV movies, but what I do miss is the era of the great mini-series. And I miss seeing the King of the Mini-series in them -- Richard Chamberlain.

    Both times it was shown, I was glued to the tv when Shogun was aired. Both the original 12-hour version and then the shortened version. I read the book too, but the mini-series was good television! I have the full version on DVD and I treasure it.

    I also loved Roots, Centennial (love Robert Conrad as well as Richard Chamberlain), Backstairs at The White House, North and South, Masada (oh, this was an excellent mini-series!), Rich Man Poor Man (yes, Nick Nolte actually looked handsome at one time ).

    I liked The Thorn Birds only because of Richard Chamberlain, but it wasn't one of the best. And while it was still a mini-series, I loved 'V' (though it later became a regular tv series).

    And any of Sidney Sheldon's books that were turned into mini-series were great.

    So for me, best mini-series ever was Shogun, and best mini-series star was Richard Chamberlain.

    Forgot about Sidney Sheldon. Used to read his books and watch is mini-series made from them.

    I unfortunately never got into Shogun. I tried, but I couldn't.

    I got to see Richard Chamberlin play Captain Von Trapp in a touring production of The Sound of Music a few years ago. He did a great job as did everyone, including the kids.

    Thanks for reminding me about North and South and Masada and V. I loved watching Shogun and North and South as my mom and I watched together and it was a great bonding experience. And yes, Richard Camberlein and Patrick Swayze were totally hot in their roles.

    As as far as Sidney Sheldon to me he is on par with Danielle Steel; I totally avoid them at all costs.
