Deserves to be watched by all Americans.
19 January 2012 | by (warren michigan) – See all my reviews

Though slightly dated ( none of the heroes portrayed are Hispanic, Amerindian or Asian), this was one the great, under-rated and overlooked Television shows of all Time. I first saw it, not on an American network, but on the Windsor ,Canada CBC affiliate, Channel 9, which often showed reruns of US TV classics( Twilight Zone, The Rogues, etc.-but not Slattery's People; perhaps it was too similar to Quentin Durgens, M.P.) They did not show ALL the episodes. ( I don't remember The Robert Taft episode or the Anne Hutchinson one), but they showed plenty, and what they showed, I loved. Together with The Great Adventure, it turned me into a history and political science junkie. For instance, it was the first time I ever heard of Frederick Douglass, whose dialog with Abraham Lincoln later became the subject of my doctoral dissertation. This show MUST be rerun or released on DVD, especially in this time of cynicism about politics and about democracy. Then again, what am I saying? That is like expecting the idiots at CBS to release Slattery's People or The Great Adventure on DVD.
