Am I Alone?
17 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I felt that this documentary series shown on the History Channel was delightfully enlightening. The documentaries were based off of the James Mcpherson book To the Best of My Abiltiy. James Mcpherson is one of the most well respected American Civil War historians and authors. I was surprised to learn that he had made a book that encompassed every Presidential Administration in the history of the United States. The documentaries follow the book in the normal History Channel style, a narrator guides the viewer through a series of historical images interspersed with interviews from historians and other experts. Every President is highlighted and the documentary does a good job at giving a fair, yet friendly perspective on most of the Presdiential legacies. The few exceptions are for the most infamous and famous of presidents. This was the case for Andrew Johnson, Lincoln's racist and brutal successor, and FDR, whose lesser known faults were brought to attention. I would have preferred the series to simply skip over the Administrations which the average History Channel viewer is already very familiar with and go more in depth into the Administrations of our forgotten "care taker" Presidents. What i enjoyed most about the series was its all around pleasantness. The soft color schemes and the soothing voice of the narrator, Edward Hermann I believe, worked together to create a highly enjoyable documentary. I think I am the only one who watched this though. The page is completely empty, I hope there are others who saw this series and enjoyed it as I did.
