Very good for those interested in history.

Some fascinating stuff... hard to imagine being overseas for so many years, away from your children, and not even knowing if you still had a country to call home.

Summary: Before he was Russell Crowe's boxing manager, John Adams was actually President of the United States. But the details of his life are largely untold, until now.

And Benjamin Franklin was our nation's first pimp daddy.

Series was great. Well the first 3 episodes. Once he was president you can sleep thru the rest.

No offense, but this really belongs in the Political TV Movie and/or Progressive Mini-series subforum.

Poppycock! The last episode was by far the best of the series!

By "Last Episode" do you mean Episode 6, or Episode 3?

The last episode in the series so that will be #6, the one where he dies.

Seriously though I agree, it was a great mini-series and personally I enjoyed all of it, not just the first half.

It's true that in episode 6 he dies, but I'm glad Luke at least removed his mask so we could see that John Adams wasn't completely consumed by his power. There was definitely a look of love on his face, which is not surprising even after being a servant of the dark side for so long.

Shaky cam drove me nuts in it though. I like how it was realistic to the period. Everyone had nasty teeth, and dirty wigs.

And when Alexander Hamilton came back as a cyborg!!!!! :up:

So who's up for a fan re-write of the John Adams book?

Yeah, this could be really good. Maybe when I have some free time.
