    Hatfields & McCoys one night, playoff hockey the next. Similarly entertaining. Both trying to kill each other. Good stuff.

    it was fucking awesome, & followed the actual history pretty good. i had to watch it twice to get the characters & stroryline straight. it all made sense the 2nd time.

    Same here. My only complaint is the same complaint that I have for any late 19th century period piece; the period era acting always seems to make the characters feel way too 1 dimensional. Either you're the innocent, gullible country bumpkin or you're the angry, ignorant type who has no patience for foolishness and new ways of doin' thangs. Or you're the abusive drunk. Everybody else is peripheral and by the numbers.

    truth be known devil hatfield was more of a businessman & wore suits. he had quite a timber operation for that area & time & was even dealmaking with some mccoys. but the other side is that its appalachia & things havent progressed much since the turn of the century

    Amazing show, the best TV I have seen lately, other than Boardwalk Empire. Tom Berenger was really good, hope it gives his career a boost.

    I thought the series was really good. I also thought the Geico ad with the two Hatfield and McCoy descendants was funny.
