This show has a excellent cast , excellent story line, and excellent props. This show is stunning by all account. This show puts you into this time period, and sets the tell of our forefathers. I absolutely love this series so far. I have only saw 2 episodes thus far, but if the writing and the story line continues on the path , this could be my favorite series of all time. With the rich detail into the power struggle, the emotions, and the greed that this great country was built upon. The writers of this have done their homework. The only problem I see with the program is the conflict of scheduling pitting the airing time against NFL football.
