I really enjoyed this series, and that is coming from someone who was not a huge fan of docudramas, until this one. I found myself drawn into the "characters" from history and looking forward to each episode to find out what would happen to Paul Revere and John Adams, etc. Of course history already knows what happens, but you have the feeling when you are watching that the outcome is still unknown, because you are more emotionally involved. (Also this went way beyond my basic high school knowledge of the Am Rev). The acting was very good overall. Ok so the actual battle scenes went on a little long for the female audience, but even then, because I "knew" the characters, I had more interest even in the battles. Because I loved this one so much, it made me want to learn more about the American Revolution, so I got a full documentary on it. Mistake, way too dry, find myself falling asleep, too much like school. Can't speak to the complete historical accuracy of this one, will leave that to others who know more, but for drama and interest this is much better than a documentary.
