Nose-talgia! Toshiro Mifune in "Shogun"

Make a visit over to Turner Classic Movies' Movie Morlocks blog for a look back at Japanese film legend Toshiro Mifune's amazing turn as Toranaga in the groundbreaking 1980 miniseries Shogun!

We plan on celebrating the miniseries genre around here in the near future.  Many of us grew up watching these major viewing events, and there has been a nice comeback recently with, for example, A&E's very successful The Hatfields and the McCoys.  It's a TV format that deserves recognition for its ability to excite viewers, and we're all for that!
