Most Favorable!

This was the best mini series I have watched since North and South. This is a very inspiring movie that feeds your soul, lifts your spirits, yet captures the frailties of the human experience and true to life dynamics of this family. It made me laugh and cry. Showed how determined this founding father was to set this nation off on the right foot.

It made me want to research more of the stories of Adams, Franklin and Jefferson. Great history lesson. Showed how much these men and their families sacrificed for the nation.

What brilliant scholars these men were and wonderful orators. Five thumbs up.
