Little Family History,
This review is from: Hatfields & McCoys [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This Mini-Series is still currently running, One episode to go. It has Three really stand out actors to me who do an outstanding job portraying the characters.
Kevin Costner plays "Anse" Hatfield and Paxton plays "Ol' Ran'l" McCoy. This follows pretty strong to the history of the feud while it's still argued what exactly caused the feud to boil to the point that it did, it was another civil war between Kentucky and W.Virginia.
My Soon to be Ex-Wife is a McCoy and boy let me tell you, they really do have some bad attitudes. It's really cool to kind of know some of the family. Proud as can be of that heritage.
I am sure the blu-ray will be great quality as well since the HD showing on History is spectacular.
If you love History grab this and you will not regret it.
Edit: Just finished the series, It was amazing. This has it all, parts that make you cry, parts that make you wanna throw something at the T.V., parts that have you on the edge of your seat. This series is great for anybody fans of history or not.
Edit: As someone mentioned to me, I left out some of the other Actors and Actresses that are deff worth mentioning, Tom Berenger play Jim Vance and at first it took me by surprise when I finally realized it was him, he player the role amazingly.
Mare Winningham played Sally McCoy and hit it spot on, it was almost to good, it was hard to watch this character at times.
Lindsay Pulsipher also stood out as Roseanna, the plot between her and Johnse was almost to heart breaking to watch and she played the heartbroken woman perfectly both mentally and physically.
Honestly there are no Actors in this film that did a bad job, Everything came together perfectly.

Great review, I liked your Ex-wife reference, it added some levity. A well done mini-series, But it is not a happy or feel good subject, it is a bunch of sad situations that generally get worse, and is told and filmed beautifully. Five stars.

How is the Blu-ray HD picture quality? How about the lossless surround audio? Can you comment on the bonus features?
No, you can't. Because once again Amazon is allowing people to post reviews of unreleased products by people who haven't seen them. And it stinks.
There are many sites for reviewing TV shows. This is a place for reviewing the Blu-ray release. Your review is decidedly Not Helpful to anyone wanting to buy that product.

RDCLARK: There is no sense in bashing people who leave reviews on "unreleased" products on amazon.
It IS amazons fault this happens but I dare you to call everyday and try to get them to change it.
Throw your anger at amazon not the users.
And by the way, your comment was not helpful about the info of this "un-released" blu ray either so you just did what you told this reviewer and (us) NOT to do. Very Annoying. Go to the source.

I had to use my back-arrow to be sure and yes, I had clicked on the image for for the mini-series on DVD, not Blu-Ray. I do not have a Blui-Ray player as yet. Also, these people had seen the mini-series on The History Channel which i missed, and is what will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray this month, so they have in fact SEEN the product they are reviewing so I and others like me can get an idea of what we WILL see when we order and view the product.
