    I saw a promo and there were a lot of hot chicks. Didn't seem realistic considering the timeframe.

    this one is good too. Anthony Michael Hall and Noah Wyle are great as Gates and Jobs.

    I'm a nerd for this kind of stuff! I've seen ALL the movies and documentaries and read all the books. That's why I got interested in this show.
    I have Pirates stored on my playstation. I love that movie.

    it was like the wild west.

    Watched every show and enjoyed it!

    When does it restart?

    I'm wondering how it will restart with Joe heading into the mountains searching for his crazy mother??
