Episode 10: Kennedy assassination and Nixon resignation
13 May 2011 | by zoakielSee all my reviews

A decent, and not melodramatically over-done recreation of the end of two presidencies. However, two glaring errors--easily avoidable by less than five minutes of on-line research--leave an impression of amateurism. 1) When covering the priest giving Last Rites to President Kennedy, the narrator, instead of saying he is giving him "extreme unction" (a term still used those days) or "last anointing", says "salvation". 2) At least two times a photo or short footage of Sen. Sam Ervin, who headed the Senate Watergate Committee, is shown and the name of the special prosecutor in the Watergate case (a quite distinct office), Leon Jaworksi, is given. Not even haste or budget constraints can excuse such slipshod journalism. I will still watch more episodes for the sake of the overall effectiveness of the depictions, but will have to keep an eye out for occasional misinformation.
