A great rendition of early american history. Gave me a renewed respect for Adams, whatever his failings.

I finally saw this mini-series. Because of the cost of cable, satellite and the inability to pick and choose the channels I want to have as opposed to bundling, I had missed out on this one. Still, patience won out and I was finally able to binge watch it on Amazon Prime. Absolute fantastic series. Great acting and great writing. There a little bit of gore at the beginning but as the series went on, the dialog became more engaging. I love that Hamilton's want for adopting the central bank was not overlooked. The debate between Jefferson and Hamilton on that issue was most entertaining as it was the infant birth of our own modern day federal reserve bank. What I disliked was the portrayal of Samuel Adams and very little was mentioned about Alan Burr. I understand why these two names were underspoken as they were not necessary to keep the narrative moving forward. Still, Paul Giamatti played an excellent John Adams.

I want to take my time to air my beef with the snobs who gave this series one star for inaccuracy. All to often this happens when adaptations to movies are made. Lord of the Rings, Roots, Gone with the Wind, John Adams; all are movies and television series, not DOCUMENTARIES! They are what we call faction (fiction and fact). Movies don't claim accuracy as they are clearly made for entertainment. Editions are always made from book to screen in both fiction and nonfiction literature. If you come to entertainment television or movies to find accuracy in anything, you're barking up the wrong tree. For accuracy, watch a documentary and be enlightened. It's no surprise to me what so ever that series has inaccuracies. The spirit of what I watched is all that mattered and it made me feel good that I watched it.

I have really enjoyed this series. I read the book this past year and the movie brings that alive more. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a history buff.

Engaging, informative and well-acted. A unique and nuanced view of American political history made possible by the format of an extended dramatic series.
