    I was confused. Has it started? Because I saw ads today that the season premiere is tonight on PBS. Then I was scrolling through and saw different time periods later on. In any event, I've got it set to record. Probably will watch it once I get them all so I can start at the beginning, whenever that is.

    TR may not be the best President this country ever had, but the best man to be President is a sure thing. Its been 100 years since TR was President but if they re-did Mt Rushmore, this convinces me he still deserves to be there.

    I'm watching on the PBS app. It looks like all 7 episodes are available. I'm almost done with the second episode. Really enjoying it so far.

    No leading from behind for Teddy.

    Highly suggest a visit to Sagamore Hill -- Teddy's home
    in Oyster Bay.

    Yes !! That's a good call.
  9. You can (binge) watch the whole thing on line on PBS.org.

    It is outstanding!

    Roosevelt by Ernest Hemingway

    Workingmen believed
    He busted trusts,
    And put his picture in their windows.
    "What he'd have done in France!"
    They said.
    Perhaps he would--
    He could have died
    Though generals rarely die except in bed,
    As he did finally.
    And all the legends that he started in his life
    Live on and prosper,
    Unhampered now by his existence.

    Watched some of it last night. Teddy was badass, especially when he somehow survived his trek in the rainforest with a 104 degree fever.

    And Lucy Mercer was a 6.
