John Adams on HBO

Did You Watch the Premiere of HBO's John Adams Last Night?

The history! The drama! It all kicked off last night on HBO's eight-part mini-series, John Adams. Did you see it?

Last night's first installment showed Adams agreeing to represent British soldiers against popular sentiment. And wins! (Hey, it's not a spoiler if you can find it on wikipedia. . .) I was struck by how they don't romanticize colonial life at all. It looks like sheer struggle from sun up to sun down. How they found time to mount a revolution and form a government is beyond me. And John Adams' eloquent delivery to the court makes me vow to never use an emoticon ever, ever again. The episode ended with Adams' appointment to the Continental Congress, a rousing speech to his constituents, and a sad goodbye to Abigail. (I loved how their relationship was portrayed as a true partnership.)

Are you into it? Did you miss it? Have no fear, the full schedule is here.

I watched it and really enjoy Giamatti as John Adams... HOWEVER, I've been reading the book (about 3/4 though it) by David McCoullough and it's FABULOUS!!

I so wanted to see this mini-series but I don't have HBO. And so I guess I'll wait for the dvds to come out and read the biography instead.

I was going to Tivo it but not watch...and then I got sucked in. The whole story is just really inspiring. Laura Linney rocks.

I reluctantly watched it with my parents and sister, but I ended up really loving it. I even had dreams about it last night!

I saw it was on but it had already started... it was only like 10 min in, but I have this obsession about needing to see everything from the begining moment until the end... Yay for OnDemand!

No, I didn't get to see it, but thank god for On-Demand (or I suppose I could thank Cablevision......)
