A four hour mini series jam packed into 10 hours
19 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A workmanlike treatment of the colonial war against England.

A nod is given to home grown terrorist groups such as the Sons of Liberty, where we see both their instigation of the incident in Boston Common, and their cynical manipulation to further their tax rebellion.

Footage is recycled a little to obviously.

One scene portraying Washington in a state of annoyance was used no less than three times in unrelated segments.

Episode 12 has no reason to exist, it's just a recap of the entire series, done in annoying and pointless flashbacks.

The writing is pretty bad in places. If you turn subtitles on, the bad textual choices are obvious enough to pause it ans ask yourself did-they-really-just-say-that?

It's a shame that they were able to get the facts basically correct, but could not make an entertaining story out of events so fraught with intrigue and drama.
