Can't trust Negative reviewers here...
3 June 2015 | by trailboss_mctSee all my reviews

OK, watched the first episode and liked it! I watched it in spite of some of the negative reviews, (which are the first thing I read when checking reviews of anything)and was able to figure out (as anyone would, after actually you know...*watching* it!) that a lot of stuff posted in the negative reviews was simply false and stupid! One reviewer made the comment "Every Texas school kid over the age of 8 *knows* the attack on the Alamo occurred March 6th...but the show leads off with it being on March 7th...!" and proceeds to spew his bullcrap opinion ad nauseum....After watching the first episode, leading off with the date March 7th, 1836, it was clear that they were referring to events occurring ON 7 March, *the day after* the attack on the Alamo.... Santana's army was digging a mass grave for the people KILLED on March 6th, and that was the scene where they captioned the March 7th date....they did no imply, in ANY way, that the Alamo was attacked that day...which, as the bogus reviewer stated, was a pretty important fact considering the nature of the material in the film! Once it became obvious that the reviewer couldn't get *that* right, the rest of his, and the others, completely negative review became moot....I had to check it out for myself. Yes: the show seems rife with "artistic license" and historical faux pa's....but it IS a TV show! It has to compete with lots of other shows in order to get the viewers! Yes, it's VIOLENT...violence SELLS! If Clint Eastwoods 1950's series Rawhide tried to make in on TV today, it too would be rife with similar violence! Or it wouldn't be around very long! I know *I* wouldn't watch it if they tried, now, the exact thing they did in the 50's! It would be too tame, simply. This is the quandary the creators of good TV are facing today: How to make something everyone wants to watch!? And it simply cannot be denied: Violence (and sex) sells! It's an unholy competition but...*they* didn't create it.....WE did! The viewers! Can't blame anyone but ourselves...
