Note: I know prices are subject to change, but I'd like to point out that the introductory offer of $8.99 per episode (or $9.99 HD) is wildly excessive for something that aired for free.

The History Channel has been trying to stretch its wings in recent years and adapt into a more competitive TV marketplace (that's why some of their reality programs seem less and less connected to actual history). Last year, they commissioned their first dramatic mini-series, "The Kennedys," which they then decided not to air due to outside pressures. REELZ picked up "The Kennedys," it became a hit for them, and it won multiple EMMYs at last year's ceremony. Well, I guess the ancestors of the Hatfields and the McCoys don't have as much political clout as the remaining Kennedy clan, because no complaints stopped the ambitious three part "Hatfields and McCoys" from airing. Proving that there is still life for the mini-series format outside of premium cable, "Hatfields and McCoys" was an instant success and a ratings blockbuster. With 13.9 viewers (for the initial broadcast), the show became the number one rated non-sporting event in basic cable history. Pretty good news for the network! Pretty good news for the viewers as well, it almost ensures we'll see History continue to dabble in dramatic programming.

Many already know the story behind this classic feud, so I'll be brief. This is a solidly constructed and well acted project. Kevin Costner does a good job as the stoic Hatfield patriarch and Bill Paxton has a showier bit as the head of the McCoy clan. As the program begins, there are so many peripheral characters that it might take a bit to align everyone into their proper relationships. Once that is done, however, I think each part of the mini-series gets progressively more involving.

How many of us grew up using the term the "Hatfields and McCoys" never really knowing what the story was about, but as a figure of speech? I know I did whenever I saw two groups of people feuding over something stupid. Well this movie tells the true historical story behind that common usage in our language. I have never been that big of a Kevin Costner fan but this movie is equal to his performance in Dances with Wolves, which is to say outstanding!! All of the acting is great and the entire story kept me on the edge of my seat. In fact once it was over I just had to know more and actually did some of my own research of the subject. This series is truly a docu-drama and historically very accurate as to the cause and effect of this ongoing feud that spilled so much blood after the Civil War ended. Well done and worth seeing from start to finish. I give it an A+!

The Hatfields and McCoys plays out on screen impeccably, thanks to bulls-eye performances by the entire cast, most notably Kevin Costner, who assumes the role of the formidable "Devil Anse," with an astonishing likeness. Granted, Costner is one very versatile actor who defies typecasting. Yet...the thought of the boyishly handsome, even-featured, Kevin Costner playing the role of craggy, hook-nosed patriarch, Devil Anse Hatfield, seems unimaginable and ill advised. But we are talking about Kevin Costner, of course, the same actor who appears equally at home on a baseball diamond, putting green. Indian reservation, and a world under water. To say he mastered the part of Devil Anderson ("Anse") Hatfield would be giving the actor short shrift. He became the man in every sense of the word -- gestures, locution, facial expressions.

The mini-series captures the raw essence of frontier life in rural Appalachia but galvanizes the mundane with gunshots, grit and hair-trigger reactions. The imperative to defend what is theirs seems to reflect the survivor mentality of settlers in rural America. However, a continual call to arms represents the extreme extent to which these two clans will go in their efforts to defend their property and their families. The curious may search for an explanation as to what caused these people to settle their disputes differently from other Americans living during that era.

Surprisingly, filming took place in the forests of Transylvania, Romania, at the Carpathian Mountain foothills, a setting which apparently simulates the untamed, rustic beauty of Appalachia quite effectively.

Convincing performances by an extraordinary ensemble of actors pump energy, family pride and a firestorm of emotions into every second of this 3-part series.

This is a great adaptation of the Hatfields & McCoys. A three part series that if your into westerns you cant help but like. My only regret was the love story... Sometimes I like a love story, but not in the middle of a good western.
