    John Adams- HBO

    Anyone else watching this series, pretty solid thus far. Really like the Ben Franklin character.

    HBO makes some high quality shows. I thoroughly enjoyed Rome and Big Love, and Sopranos of course.

    Too bad my 3 months of free premiere channels promotion with DirecTV just expired.

    Re: John Adams- HBO

    I've been enjoying it.

    You're right, Tom Wilkinson is good at Ben Franlin. Paul Giamatti has surprised me in the lead role. And I don't usually like Laura Linney, but she's been good as well.

    What I also like is that they don't put Adams on a pedestal and sing his praises. The last episode in particular shows his flaws.

    HBO does a great job with their mini-series. Earth to the Moon and of course Band of Brothers are my favorites. And I think that Real Sports alone is worth getting HBO

    I wish I would have been watching this from the start. I caught part of one the other day. Quality stuff.

    Cool Re: John Adams- HBO

    Great stuff.

    It should be a requirement that every U.S. citizen watch stuff like this at least once a year to remind them how great of a country we are living in........

    Wait a bit and I'm sure HBO will have a night when they play all the episodes that have been shown thus far. They do that from time to time. I'm watching the 3rd epi for the first time tonight
