All the players in the early life of our country were active in this film, if only in the background. The added historical notes feature is very informative. Laura Linney and Giamatti do a very good job of portraying their figures. All was not wine and roses in the early days of this country. Thank goodness we were Blessed with the fortitude of such people as John Adams. The movie gave me great respect for him as a person whom I had not really been introduced to in my educational process.
I loved this first season and wanted to see it again. If you love New Orleans or want to know more about what happened after Katrina, this show gets it right.\nAlso, Walmart had the best price for these blue-ray DVDs anywhere.
Love the series, 2 is great but the first season is even better.I never buy the first season of any series because it seems to drag on to the main point. But...to really get a idea how a 2nd season begins, 1 should know how the 1st ended. My opinion, the 2nd season take off with much drama from the surviver's of New Orleans after their devastation. Love it. also...the Music is incredible. I give it 5 stars,recommend both seasons. Only bad thing, H.B.O only made 2 seasons, They should've made more like their other series.
I had been trying to find this title locally and no one I checked with had it but, WalMart.com sure did. I received it in a very timely manner having it delivered to our local store. It was very easy to find and order at WalMart.com and the price was certainly right.
I purchase DVDs to entertain my 85 year old mother. She was able to keep up with the movie and she enjoyed the story line. For a minute I thought it would have a sad ending but it turned and had a happy ending. I waited for the DVD after seeing the advertisements and thoroughly enjoyed the watching. I will probably watch it again in a few weeks.
