I don't think so. It looks like a Fast and Furious version of John Adams. I'm surprised Vin Diesel isn't in it.

Wonder how they will spin it to make it look like the founding fathers were all racist terrorists and American independence was a huge mistake that has caused untold heartbreak worldwide ever since.

Locating an actual accurate history show on the History Channel is tantamount to finding a music video on MTV these days, not gonna happen.
No, I will not be watching. I will get MY revisionist history on CNN, just like the LOTUS ( my own revision of history is now The Liar of The United States ) does.

Sure. Nothing I know of on TV that would be competing with it for my time. If it sucks I will check on Glocktalk. Sunday night no football and no walking dead so why not.

We are having a big party. Folks are really excited. Great way to cap off the season.

I just watched the intro.

I wasn't sure if I was watching "Pirates of the Caribbean" or "The Legend of Zorro".

Watching it now. Drinking a Thomas Jefferson Tavern Ale. Both are keeping me entertained.

Watching it now... So far so good...

However, I like how Sam Adams ranted about the high tax rate the governor is imposing on businesses making it impossible for them to survive, yet no number is provided.

Any idea what it actually was?

I've found a rate of about 13% on the colonies in general...

I'm willing to bet it was much lower than what our current government taxes businesses at...
