Entertaining miniseries
29 January 2015 | by Zulu42See all my reviews

The History Channel has taken it upon itself to create some good entertainment based on historical circumstances with the Sons Of Liberty miniseries. Though there are some areas in this series where Hollywood takes creative license to make this historical event flashier than it read in the books, taken for what it is, the show was interesting and managed to keep a good portion of the factual stuff. I read some complaints about the casting for the character of Samuel Adams, due to the fact that Ben Barnes is not as doughy as some of the portraits of the original Adams was but Barnes does a great job in his portrayal of the intense Boston rebel. Rafe Spall is also well cast as the mercenary John Hancock who reluctantly joins the growing rebellion after his financial situation takes a hit. He manages to play smarmy and sympathetic all at once, which is tricky. Good action scenes (The History Channel excels at those) and again, some creative liberties are taken with the story line but overall, an interesting series that touches on an important part of the birth of the United States in a turbulent time.
