John Lafia gives a very interesting insight into the making of this miniseries which originally ran 4 hours on TV, but now runs 165 mins without commercials. Lafia talks about all aspects of the production. He is just slightly repetitive a few times.
The commentary is a little bit dry, and there are a few pauses, but nothing major. I get the distinct feeling that the commentary could have been spiced up quite a bit if a major actor or another person from the production team had been there with Lafia.
Still, for anyone who is interested in what goes into making a didaster miniseries with some excellent effetcs (and some not so excellent) for a mere $15.000.000, this commentary is a gold mine.
