Quotes

James Winthrop: [referring to the Puritans] We're not the kind of people who are easily discouraged by a few snow flurries, a couple of head colds, and a 50 percent mortality rate.

Sarah Vowell on Thanks
27 August 2008 | by (Saint Paul, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This show, to put it succinctly, Plymouth Rocks. It shows the terrible hardships of early settlers and their foibles and hubris. Somehow the puritanical Puritans remain human throughout.

Sarah Vowell has a great bit on this show from "This American Life" that you can listen to at: http://thislife.org/Radio_Episode.aspx?episode=328

While it's sad that the show is canceled it is more remarkable that it even got made. Can you imagine the pitch meeting?

Pitcher: "Um, yeah, I have this idea for a comedy set in the 17th century Puritan community of New England."

Pitchee: "Wow. What's the funniest part, the 50% mortality rate or the hellfire and damnation preaching?"

Pitcher: "I saw you last night at Spago's with a woman who I know is not your wife"

Pitchee: "Let's make this sumbitch!"

If you can find it on DVD anywhere let the IMDb community know. This is the kind of comedy we need.
