This looks like it's worth watching.
I have a timer set. We'll give it a shot.
I am a bit skeptical, I just expect it to turn into how "bad" and "evil" we have been in the past, but we shall see.
If it is half as good as the old Alistair Cooke "America" series, it will be well worth watching.
Got it set to record myself.
Saw a promo for it at work today and set up the SL when I got home.
I would anticipate that level.:sure:
The trailer looks very cool. Will watch.
I set a Series Link anyways but this looks like a mini series. Any word of how many episodes?
12 episodes, 6 nights.
I'm looking forward to this.
My wife will probably watch it as I sleep thru it.
+1 Timer set!
So did anyone else end up with duplicates of last nights showing? I'm thinking guide data was different for the two showings so not knowing any better it recorded both.
I haven't watched them yet, but last night both episodes 1 and 2 were aired (I did see that in the guide descriptions). Based on what's been written here, all 12 episodes will be shown in 6 nights.
Just started watching this. Includes a very sneaky Bank of America commercial. Even with historians!
Yeah that was bogus.
Yes, I had duplicate recordings, one at 9 PM EDT and one at 11PM EDT. Though the titles were the same, I suspect you are right about something being different in the guide data.
Not bad at all - except how they skipped over some stuff that they seemed to be building up for.
They talk about the occupation of Boston - next scene is the defense of New York without mentioning the brialliant manuever that Washington did to make the British pull out of Boston without firing a shot.
They talk about the spy network in New York, saving the French fleet and Washington getting ready to attack New York. The next scene is in Yorktown.
The only facts that weren't mentioned that jumped out at me were about Paul Revere. Firstly, they failed to mention Dawes and Prescott concerning the 'midnight ride' and had Rever saying "the British are coming" which is foolish since all the people considered themselves British (eyewitness accounts had the three of them saying "the Regulars are coming" - as in the Regular Army)
Still, that's a bit of nitpicking over an otherwise very well done installment.
Oh yeah - forgot - when they did the CGI "pull back" from the Plymouth settlement, they should have pulled back from the south shore of Boston near Cape Cod. Instead, the location they pulled back from was on the north shore - about where Salem is - which is where the Puritans settled, a different sect from the Pilgrims in Plymouth.
