Looks good. Surprised it's on The History Channel.

Once a year, the History channel redeems itself for all the reality crap they have been putting on for the past couple of years. This would be one of those times. Can't wait.

"Hey this looks interesting... wait, it's on History? Well fuck."

A&E and HBO I don't mind fictionalized versions of events for TV series (e.g. that railroad show or Pacific) but History should be held to a higher standard.

But the Pacific wasn't a work of fiction. It was based on couple of books written by Marines who served during World War 2.

When a network has shows like American Pickers and Swamp Men, I think holding the History Channel to a higher standard is a bit much if you ask me.

Theoretically, yes. However, the History Channel will go days only showing Ancient Aliens and shows on Nostradamus so they don't exactly have much credibility when it comes to truth, accuracy, and facts.

It was fictionalized, it's not a wholly accurate depiction of of the source works. A&E and History's cheap programming cancel each out and you're left comparing Ancient Aliens against First 48.

I'm not saying A&E doesn't have shit programming, but they at least they make an attempt to differentiate non-fiction and fiction programming.

Anybody catch it?

imhotep... it was fucking fantastic.

Bravo to the Hitlery Channel. I hope this is just the beginning for them. Hopefully they'll claw their way up out of the Bigfoot and UFO muck and give us more of this sort of non-fantasy-based quality TV.

And it absolutely destroyed in the ratings. It smashed Hoo Hoo's dancing dogs and rapping grannies talent show by like 3 million more viewers. A cable channel! Smashed a network flagship show!

America... there may be hope for you yet.

Excellent casting... The Postman... Chet from Weird Science... Sergeant Barnes... playing their roles perfectly.

I watched it and loved it. Can't wait for part two tonight.

I watched it and I thought it was pretty good. I'm going to record the next two parts so I can fast forward through the commercials.

Although I wouldn't get too excited about History giving us more quality TV. If you look at their promos, they're all about redneck jobs, interior decorators, and pawn shops. Its like I said before, they usually redeem themselves once a year.

A&E has Gene Simmons shitty reality show and nothing can redeem them for that. I actually like Pawn Stars and American Pickers.

I'm waiting until all 3 of the eps have aired before I watch.

I enjoyed it. But kind of wish they would have just made a movie out of it with the cast they got.

But I guess 6 hours > 2-2 and a half hours.

Too bad they couldn't get any inbred looking actors for these roles. It would give a more accurate feel to this great series.

I spent all this time hating Jim Vance I didn't even realize that was Tom Berenger playing him.

Can't believe the history channel actually put out something good.

I just want to know why their descendants had to sign a peace treaty in 2003. What were they fighting over, control of the oxy and meth trade.

I bring love and cheer.

I started watching H2 instead of history channel because they show more ancient history shows and not ALIENS ON EASTER ISLAND! and other unproven garbage.

it was symbolic, the descendants didn't hate each other.

It strikes me how much wackbag is like the Hatfields and the McCoys... you have Mayr as Devil Anse Hatfield, Don as Randall McCoy, and Kirk playing the role of Cotton Top the mush head to a T.
