          A documentary on the feud is set to run on HISTORY the day before the miniseries starts. Its director is Mark Cowen, who co-produced and directed "Band of Brothers: We Stand Alone Together," the documentary accompaniment to HBO's "BoB" miniseries.

              I hear they turned Costner down when he wanted to name it "Dances With Rednecks...

                  As usual I missed the entire thing. What started that fued anyhow ?

                    The intial events surround the killing of a family member in West Virginia who fought for the Union. This led to the reprisal killing of a family friend on the other side. Thisngs spiral down from there but it looks as if the love affair between a young man and woman from both families, involving a pregnancy, will touch off the "whole shoot'in match"

                    To say the boys in those hills were a bit "lawless" is the definition of understatement.

                      From the view of a lifelong Kentucky country boy, who has from time to time, been among "The hill people"....the whole thing missed the mark considerably.
                      The film makers just couldnt resist "cowboying it up"!!
                      As you can tell....I wasnt impressed.

                      It's truly a simple concept.

                        Is Paxton possibly cutting his teeth for the Civil War HBO series?
               useless it was to struggle against fortune, this being the burden of wisdom which the ages had bequeathed to him.

                          I don't know. I've been more ill than I realized last few days. I haven't seen the episodes I have on DVR.

                                This is the third installment of my guessing game. It is for the U.S. specifically irrespective of regional differences in 2020.

                                We will see a modest spike in July or August
                                We will see a modest spike in October through December
                                There will be a significant spike in October through December
                                There will be a large second wave, time frame unspecified.
