Storyline

Following the death of his elderly grandmother, Mike Franks travels with his wife Pam and 10-year-old daughter Amy to his grandmother's old house where he accidentally finds an old letter hidden behind a portrait of George Washington. A morbid letter supposedly written by Washington about killing and eating children. In trying to verify the authenticity of the letter, Mike becomes the target of 'the Washingtonians'; a secret society of various and powerful people who protect the secret life of the 'Father of the Country', and whom, like Washington... are cannibals.

Oh Come on it was funny!
29 January 2007 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I thought this show was great, -- both scary and funny! I wonder if George Washington has any relatives that might take offense to the founder of our country being called a cannibal! Anyway, I got a big kick out of this. The old people were creepy. I loved their banquet hall with GW's old teeth and the other fork that completed the collection! The portrait they say GW commissioned was really a hoot too. I kept waiting for Saul Rubinek to turn out to be on the other side, but it ended up he was on the side of the non-cannibals. I was surprised to see that Jonathan Saech co-wrote the script -- he's totally gorgeous too. And available. Thanks Showtime. I love your series!
