    Thanks, momrek. This should be good! I love Richard Dreyfuss and haven't seen him in ages.

    I like Richard too. I want to watch this, because I didn't follow the details of the story that closely. I know the basics, but I hope this mini series will give us more about the players and how they all say they didn't know what was going on. Oh, Mr. Madoff lives just down the road from me in the Federal Correctional Facility located in Butner, NC. (Forty miles or so.)

    Here's a good summary of the Bernie Madoff scam (called "The $50 Billion Ponzi Scheme" on YouTube), and more info on other Ponzi schemes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2nX3FdRyR0.

    Also, PBS's "Frontline" did a really in depth 2 part documentary on Madoff called "The Madoff Affair."

    That first half was very good!! Those two hours flew by. I am ready for part two..when the blank hits the fan.. Dreyfuss must have studied Madoff, he was excellent..

    I knew what the guy did, but I had no idea what a smug, narcissistic a-hole the guy was.
    Looking forward to tonight.

    Wow.

    What a pathetic individual or I should say pathetic scumbag.

    The 2 night series was very good. RD as Madoff was awesome.

    Both his sons are dead. Absolutely horrible.

    And yet he sits in jail rather smug and pompous. AND thinking the prisoners all like him.
