Re: “Bingeable: John Adams

Excellent series! The actors are all well-cast. David Morse is the perfect George Washington. Rufus Sewell is marvelously handsome as Alexander Hamilton.

Re: “Bingeable: John Adams

I too just found this series and being but 5 episodes in am totally enthralled. I went and read the reviews and sadly found many ( most? ) criticized the failure to adhere to historic truths and panned Giamatti's performance. Firstly, if I want a history lesson I will take an early American history college course. In fact, I did way back in my college days and found it to be packed with mistruths! Secondly, I think Giamatti has, as you stated, carried the show. I don't look to TV dramas and miniseries for accurate historic representations. I look to them for pure entertainment and I am truly entertained! Sadly, like with much else today, people tend to over think it all. My advice for those folks is for them to take off their stuffy personality hats, stop trying to always find fault and for once simply enjoy a good show!
