This review is from: America - The Story of the US [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
With an introduction by the Prezident, we had high hopes.
This is fast paced, glossy, American MTV style History, without the adverts.
Unfortunately it's all very one dimensional, distracting and shallow.
Oh, and Donald Trump keeps popping up !!
It's a shame such an interesting subject has been so fouled.
Not worth the time or money, may I have a refund please ?
Suggest you check out the TV Mini Series John Adams, much more accurate, entertaining and balanced. Gives a good insight into the start of American independence, and the associated struggle.

Sadly, I completely agree with your review of this series! But, as someone with a keen historical research interest in the American War of Independence who has watched the John Adams series, I'm afraid it too, whilst better, more historically accurate and balanced, and more enjoyable, is still pretty flawed in places - see my review of it for a summary list of its problems.

As soon as I read that Donald Trump is in it I decided not to buy!
