Customer Reviews

Overall Ok but seems like quality is down

I love this series. I've been a fan of it for many years and always look forward to each new season and what it could bring. But I must say that I feel that the quality of programming this season is down. I tuned into the Robert E. Lee series looking for keen insights into the man and his mind but what I saw (which was ok) was a convulated mash of excerpts in his life. I was looking for a more complete picture and instead what I got was little bits here and there.

Don't get me wrong, it was an ok episode and I enjoyed it. But this series has a history of setting the bar higher and I must say that I was somewhat dissappointed with the result. Additionally I would like to see more projects focusing on things other than the Civil Rights Movement. I realize that it was an amazing thing to behold, but there is much more to the 60's than that. I think this series has covered it almost completely. (A documentary on James Meredith would be great however). Last years Roads To Memphis likewise seemed more intent in connecting modern events to history instead of saying what happened. You need to understand how something happened before you can begin to make those connections.

Keep up the good work and I'll look forward to what will be coming next.

"Women had to burn"

Yes, a quote from the drama. It ends something like 'in order for us to learn'. But eerily enough I got the suspicion that the owners set this fire on purpose, as payback for the strike. The locked door, them escaping on the roof without warning the workers, the insurance money........
