You'd think that combining a good director, excellent actors and fascinating
historical events would make for an entertaining miniseries -- but you'd be
wrong. The writing stank, the history was worse than inaccurate, and I can
barely believe excellent actors such as McKidd and Carlyle were able to deliver some of their lines with a straight face. Historical inaccuracies aside, the story itself was delivered so disjointedly it was downright choppy -- almost as if an entirely different director and writer made each half. Skip this one.
