Too Opinionated
13 June 2020 | by jareddSee all my reviews

From the first few minutes I knew something was amiss when the narrator endlessly bashed William Randolph Hearst. I've toured the castle and the focus should be on the architecture, not Hearst. The skilled labor, logistics of construction, etc.

The negative, controversial side of the narration continues throughout all the episodes, so it is clear they are more interested in making their point than providing an enjoyable tour of the USA.

The other issue with this is the poor transfer and editing. There are lots of distracting moire patterns and jagged edges throughout and many times we see the same thing over and over to give the narrator time to finish his speech.

Overall I spent a few days watching bits of various episodes, from states I knew VERY well to states I'd never visited. There is plenty to see here and yes, some good information. But if you're patriotic, this will probably just make you angry....
