Ethan Hawke stars as abolitionist John Brown in this limited series based on the National Book Award-winning novel. The story is told from the point of view of "Onion," a fictional enslaved boy who becomes a member of Brown's motley family of abolitionist soldiers battling slavery in Kansas, and eventually finds himself in the famous 1859 Army depot raid at Harpers Ferry, an inciting incident of the Civil War. It's a humorous and dramatic tale of Antebellum America and the ever-changing roles of race, religion and gender in American society.Written by

Crazily Entertaining and Easyily Likeable
Feels like the love child of 'Django Unchained' and 'Brother Where Art Thou'....... Great Show!!!
I've watched Ethan Hawke seesaw between good and bad productions, good and bad performances over recent years, there is no question he is on the up swing in both regards in The Good Love Bird. Really refreshing and a fun watch.
