JOHN ADAMS MINISERIES

Man, that John Adams HBO series is amazing. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you beg, borrow, steal, or Netflix it, because it's phenomenal. What a gorgeous piece of film. John Adams might actually have cracked a smile in Heaven over it. (Ok, that's a bit much of a stretch, but still...)

Happy watching (and sad, and frustrating, and happy, and enlightening, and....)

It's wonderful! I was riveted throughout the series. The closest we can get to being there.

Right Smoke. I thought I WAS there. The special features option was especially enjoyable showing all the behind the scenes details.

He and his wife got more time away from their kids than the GHW Bush's did.

I watched it when it first came on HBO. Waiting a week for the next episode seemed like a long time but it was worth it. The way that they made up the actors to resemble the presidents was amazing. The clothing, the buildings and the people all trying to help us see what they went thru so long ago. I agree with the others a must see mini series.

John Adams was certainly one of the best pieces of film I have ever seen. Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney were both superb.
I too watched it when it first came on...and had to wait for it each week...it's best seen in it's entirety...I think.
Just brilliant.

I agree this one would be best watched in it's entirety. That weekly wait was a bummer. I bought "Band of Brothers" on DVD for this reason. I also bought "Lonesome Dove" and I am about halfway through my "Sopranos" complete DVD set. I may go broke but I will be a happy pauper.

Don, Can you really get the Sopranos from Day 1 ?? Without getting personal, about how much does it cost for the whole lot??

I think it comes out on November 11th (or whatever Tuesday is closest to that date). Everyone will have it on sale at first, but even on sale it'll still probably run you $275-$350.

Much cheaper to just rent them. =)
