5.0 out of 5 stars Takes you to that heady time, March 31, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: John Adams (DVD)
Like many others, I am seeing the series as they come out on HBO, and have yet to read the book (which I intend to at some point). The series features great acting, poignant scenes, and memorable oratory. But what really got me was how it transported you to that time, when life was a series of great heroics, but was also harsh, gritty, and so unforgiving. The series kept sending me to try and research different historial events that I remembered fleetingly reading about, in one line or a few paragraphs during unfortunately uninspiring history classes of many years ago. The concept of being "tarred and feathered" took a whole new dimension for me, as the brutality of that era touched everyone, rightly or wrongly. I am sure I would have more to say once I have finished seeing the series, but I cannot stop thinking about the different scenes. I recommend it to everyone very highly, and can't wait for the DVD to come out.

There are reasons to RENT or BUY. RENT, when it is a lite comedy or MYSTERY; BUY when it is expertly crafted and fun to watch re-watch, and loan/discuss.
