  1. Thought I'd start one since the debut is tonight.
    LJB, your thoughts?

    Looking forward to it. But I wish the focus were a little more diffuse here.

    I understand James Otis gets the shaft again. Adams would not have been cool with this.

    A man's man and glamor boy ought to be playing Hamilton, not this fop, whoever he is.


    Hamilton was a Tom Brady of his time.

    LJB, I'm confused.

    You pretty much despise the guy who wrote the book this is based on, yet you're looking forward to it?

    When all you have is The Patriot, Revolution and the terrible Barry Bostwick-driven Washington network miniseries (full of '80s conceits) to tide you over for 25 years, yeah.

    A miniseries like this can't truly begin until everyone in the academy has wrung his hands over how badly it's going to suck. I'm looking forward to that Greek chorus over the next several weeks than anything else.
  5. I bought the book last week. McCullough is hit or miss for me (I loved Truman and Mornings on Horseback but tried to read Path Between the Seas three different times and failed). I will be interested if this guy follows the action


    Very interesting stuff on that blog if that's your cup of tea.

    That's a great blog.

    Here's another one with a review of the miniseries.

    So do I watch these as they come in, or save them to the Tivo and watch from start to finish?
