Really enjoyed watching every episode.

Love this time period, I think this show gives a very different take about the people who built the Titanic as opposed to the love story.
Helene Fawkes
Very well done--excellent cast, acting, scenery, costumes.

Are you a Titanic enthusiast? Do you think that you've seen every conceivable story made in relationship to the epic disaster that befell the ship on its fateful maiden voyage? Never fear, there will always be a new dramatic vantage point to be explored. The twelve part 2012 miniseries "Titanic: Blood and Steel" bets you'll be interested in the intrigue and conflicts that arose during the building of the vessel. That's right, "Blood and Steel" picks up as the concept of the Titanic is borne and ends as the ship is about to embark on its journey. None of that pesky iceberg business for this production! In many ways, "Titanic: Blood and Steel" is a throw back to the old-fashioned TV miniseries before premium cable channels changed the game forever with more dramatic realism and higher production values. Ironically, though, this program premiered on Encore (a premium cable network) but it still feels like a network TV endeavor. In its original broadcast, two episodes were presented each evening for six consecutive nights for a massive weeklong commitment. This is a case where having the luxury of watching the show at your own pace is undoubtedly a good thing.

While there are plenty of good elements at work in this presentation, it simply feels incredibly long for the actual storylines presented! "Titanic: Blood and Steel" is more of a high gloss soap opera than a serious contemplation of history. That's fine, that's a perfectly reasonable narrative choice, but I just want to mention that fact quite prominently. If you come to this miniseries expecting to gain new insight into the Titanic, you might feel a bit shortchanged. And if you get annoyed by historical inaccuracies and are well versed in Titanic lore, you might also want to take a pass.

Titanic: Blood and Steel will probably be eclipsed by more conventional Titanic movies that focus on the disaster. It's really a very intelligent drama, focusing not so much on the sheer process of ship building as on labor negotiations, class tensions, religious discrimination, feminism, idealism, and politics. (Where else will you find heartwarming slogans like "We're going to take engineering back from the accountants!") The characters often debate politics, ethics, and engineering; you may or may not like this sort of thing; I did. The vocabulary is refreshingly sophisticated. The series shows what is apparently a real ship being built in a real shipyard, with lots of gritty industrial shots. Belfast is convincingly cobblestoned and dirty (I was reminded of Pittsburgh, in its steel and coal days).

I was, therefore, disappointed by the lack of realism in other areas. Criticisms in Wikipedia include things like the purported Titanic being built on the slip where in reality the Olympic was built. Most viewers won't know that or care. But most *will* know that the Titanic was not bigger than its sister ship the Olympic, that the "unsinkable" marketing slogan was not generated by an engineer (who would have had more sense), and some other blatant errors. Even more important, for a movie that focuses on social change, this one is appallingly ignorant of early 20th-century society. Women did not commonly have sex before marriage and whether they did or not, their goal was marriage and they did their best to guide the man towards it, not have an endless on-off relationship like several in this movie. Tycoons did not disinherit an only child/daughter who refused to marry the supremely stupid son of a wealthy man.

This is a nice little mini-series set against the backdrop of the construction and sailing of RMS Titantic in the years 1910-12. I have seen detractors slam the series as it "does not offer any new information" or has minor flaws; this is not a documentary - it is entertainment. If it inspires one to learn more about the ship, the people who built her, and the times in which they lived, so much so the better.

Really enjoyed watching every episode. Didn't want it to end. Don't care that there may have been some historical inaccuracies, it was a very exciting storyline.

Found this top notch production one of the best Titanic dramas with flawlessly executed performances by every cast member. If you want to be transported back to 1909-1912 Belfast era when the Titanic is being designed, built and launched, this series is your ticket. Set design, costumes and visual effects are excellent. Want to see and enjoy it all over again.

This was a wonderful miniseries I happened upon it accidentally and couldn't have been more thrilled to watch it. This isn't a documentary it picks up a completely different side of the Titanic. It's about the building of the Titanic and ends with the boarding of the boat. I found myself getting emotionally involved with the characters and loving every minute of it. I didn't want it to end.

I'll keep this simple since alot of other reviewers did a beautiful job summarizing this movie. It was AWESOME!!! The actors captured the elegance of the time period and of course the struggles and hardships that were sometimes heart breaking. I have loved anything Titanic my whole life so I am very pleased to add this to my collection!
