HBO's John Adams
Anyone else watching this miniseries? I finally got to see the second episode this afternoon, and I gotta say they're filmed/scripted/told really very well. I'm not even a big history buff, but this a great way of "viewing" history IMO.
Just thought I'd see if anyone else was enjoying the series too?

I've watched the first two episodes with this weekend's free viewing of HBO and I have to say that I am more pleased than disappointed....some interesting casting choices (didn't expect so many no-names) and some dead on choices (Wilkinson, Linney, and Giamatti are fantastic...as they almost always are).
I'll have to see what happens with the Jefferson portrayal. That's the one big question mark I have.

Overall, show gets an A in my book.

I want to watch it, but I will probably have to wait until its released on DVD or replayed from the beginning.

BTW, for those that saw, Episode 3 was also very good. Wilkinson is becoming one of my more favored actors (especially after Michael Clayton and his portrayal in this series)

Saw this over the free weekend and its a solid series. Completely enjoyed. Characters, performance, settings were all awesome. The show with the smallpox vaccine made me cringe to think how illnesses were delt with in the ole days !
Sadly, I'll need to wait for the DVD or HISTORY ch. to pick up the entire series
