And their camp looked just like ours except we had a "hard top" going up between the rows.

DON'T TELL ME HOW IT ENDS!!

Actually, I'm looking forward to seeing this some day.  I don't have cable so Netflix it shall be.

Available streaming on the History Channel site.

Karen and I watched the first 30 minutes or so on the big screen via our AppleTV.

Today we discussed it and both decided it was too violent and depressing for our tastes.

Back to Fringe, Friday Night Lights and Downton Abbey!

Thanks for the tip!  Unfortunately, the History Channel does not appear to be available via my Roku box.  And my monitor is too small to watch something of this duration.  I suppose I could hook up my computer/DSL to my TV... but too much trouble.

Off topic, but we replaced the ROKU on our main TV with an AppleTV and couldn't be happier.

The ability to seamlessly "throw" content from an iPad or even an iPhone up onto a big screen is really nice.

As a caveat, not all computer/browser combinations take advantage of AirPlay.

But still, at only $99, it's quite a bargain.

Just finished watching the series.


It was meh. I liked the perfmances of Costner and especially Berringer. But not much else.

Yeah, I agree.  Costner carried every scene he was in, everything else was pretty TV-movie-esque.
