      Ditto here, gonna have to wait for this to be released on DVD. A couple people I know watched last night and told me it is very well done so I hope it gets released soon.

        Just finished watching this on DVD. It's great! Paul Giamatti as Adams deserves any awards coming his way.

          Yes it is great and you should go to Blockbuster and rent the DVDs. Really superbly done.

            I have a guy in my reenacting unit who is in that film. I don't no where though.

              Great mini series! I recommend it to anyone interested in that era. Now if only they'll give Washington an up to date treatment

                A friend of mine has seen it on DVD and she said it is really good. I have the audio book of it which is what the series is based on. The audio book got really good reviews too. I think I will listen to the book first, and then rent the DVD.
