In February 1993, the eyes of the world converged on Mount Carmel, a small religious community located just outside of Waco, TX. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) conducted a raid on leader David Koresh and his devoted followers, known as the Branch Davidians. After what became the longest gun battle in U.S. law enforcement history, four ATF agents and six civilians were dead, and dozens more were wounded. A 51-day standoff ensued, and the conflict ended after an FBI siege led to a fire that engulfed the entire Mount Carmel compound, killing 76 men, women, and children.

I was just a kid when this happened. I really enjoyed the show. There were times I was rooting for the Branch Davidians and times I was hoping to see David T. Leave and see his mom who was outside. If I’m not mistaken, the entire script was based off two books from Gary (FBI) and David T (Survivor)....this why we get both sides portrayed the way they were. One interesting fact that I almost wonder if they chose to omit from this was the fact that Tim McVay was outside Mt. Caramel during the standoff which would carry over to the OK city bombing.
But yes, it’s definitely worth the watch, and really hoped to see a physical copy released.
Possibly Best Show of 2018
Did you like That original Story Version of OJ ? Well this is The same thing but with WACO, and a LOT more entertaining. TBH i was maybe 11 or 12 when this happened so i vaguely recall these events. The Acting was FANTASTIC when you compare the mannerisms/speech patters of actor-Dave Koresh/the Real David Koresh he comes to life on the screen. The Mini Documentary that is included (about 26 minutes total runtime) Shows that there was MAJOR attention to detail, the Compound looks exactly like the real one, its like they built the set from exact measurements. There are some minor anacronisms that can easily be overlooked, but overall the productions Values are VERY stunning, nothing cheesey or over-the-top, and no terrible CG. John Leguiziyamo (who i even forgot was in this when i bought this) is AMAZING, OMG i love me sum John Legizzizamo's! This Show is so engrossing you will yell at the sceen, and the cliff hanger episodes will have you READY to click on the next episode, the Qaulity of HD video and 5.1 Audio REALLY sells this feature. i had to take off a Star because of unoriginal writing/direction where they Start the entire show in the middle of an intense scene and then GO " 6 months Earlier" - how many shows/movies feel like they have to do this to grab your attention ?? This show will have you question what it means to be American, and do we really live in a Police state where the government seeks control by force and fear?? or was it just a simple misunderstanding?? THIS show was so good i would put it up there with Breaking Bad, Fargo, and Dexter. 6 Episodes seems kinda short, but it tells the entire story nicely, my ownly regret is there is no Epilouge so you just have to kinda be ok with the abrupt ending.
i don't get all the 1 stars, there is no real political message in this. maybe people want to believe the police have our best intrests and rights in mind, or maybe they want to believe the media always presents an objective view of whats going on... lol
Could have been great...
This show seems to glamorize the Koresh cult. It was a terrible debacle and mistake on the government/FBI/ATF’s part. However, it’s no reason to glamorize what this cult was doing. Bad and immoral on all sides can be true at once. It’s for sure entertaining and the acting is well done. But “based on a true story” is generous as far as this interpretation is concerned.
