Promising beginning
11 February 2021 | by ddlvwrkhiSee all my reviews

The entire first hour was great. I have distant relatives from Arkansas, Alabama and Virginia and was interested to learn about true hillbilly cultures from their history, present day and future. Then the gay and poloitical BS took over the entire last 40 minutes or so and really turned me off. Thanks for ruining what could have been an enlightening and positive description of the back-bone of America!
