How could you make this any better?
13 December 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I loved this documentary for two main reasons. First, the period covering our first three Presidents is pretty much a void for documentaries--especially the terms of George Washington. Considering how important they were in setting precedents and working through what, exactly, the office entails, it's the most important period in the nation's history---but it's something most Americans know almost nothing-- about although they certainly should. Second, the show was made so exquisitely. Although you don't have photos, video and the like for this time period, the filmmakers used actors to recreate some scenes as well as the voice talents of some VERY prestigious actors--which, I am surprised the History Channel could afford--including James Woods, Michael York Hal Holbrook and others. In addition, the wonderful historian David McCullough participated--which is important as he's written perhaps the best book on John Adams. All in all, there's nothing not to like and I have no criticism whatsoever--and that's very rare! Excellent history and enjoyable from start to finish. It's made up up four episodes totaling about three hours--and they seemed to go by very quickly.
