When a metal knife, sword, or bayonet strikes flesh, no metallic "shink" sound actually occurs. These sound effects are heard throughout the series, though, as if metal is striking metal. See more »

Worth watching

I found the first night interesting enough to make me download Grant's autobiography. It covers a lot of ground but like many shows can't get real deep in a few hours (especially with commercials). Use your DVR to watch uninterrupted. I'm happy for these historical biographical shows- I doubt anyone is getting any of this in school much anymore, especially in any depth.
