Storyline

John Adams chaffs under the mantle of Vice President for its utter lack of authority and responsibility. Despite his abhorrence of the divisiveness of political parties John is drawn to the Federalist camp favoring a strong executive. Divisions even reach into the President's cabinet, exacerbated by war in Europe. Written by David Foss

Unite Or Die.
31 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Part 5 of our fantastic Mini-series John Adams played by Paul Giamatti is trying to preside over The Senate and to debate over what to call the new President. Johns opinions are ignored and he has no actual power. He is excluded from George Washingtons inner circle of cabinet members and his relationship with Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hammilton are strained. Part 4 concludes with Johns inauguration as the second president and his subsequent arrival in a plundered executive mansion.

Not Rated.
