    Anyone planning on watching this? It starts on May 28th (Memorial Day) and is a 3 part, 6 hour mini series.

    I saw the trailer at the movie theater when I went to see The Avengers - the series looks really good. It stars Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton in some post Civil War drama. When I saw the trailer, I was first impressed, then immediately surprised that it was not a movie, but a TV series.

    I am looking forward to this one!

    "Some post Civil War drama"?

    This is the Hatfields & McCoys! THE post-Civil War drama!

    And yes, it looks great. I'd be watching it even if it weren't the only thing on next week.

    I am so in.
    "Bad" Frank Phillips was my great-great uncle and my pedigree is peppered with McCoys.
    Frank Phillips BIL was my great grandfather Bud Sanders who was sheriff of Pike County during a portion of this mess but resigned so as not to be involved with hangings.

    Tis a tangled web but yes, I am so there!

    I saw the preview at the movies, and thought it was a movie (which I would not have watched). But as a mini-series, it has more potential. I'll record it and wait for the reviews. :)

    The other thread was Hatfield (NO S) so that's probably why it didn't show up :D

    Looks epic. Every once in a while a really good miniseries comes along. It looks like this could be one of those.

    Entertainment Weekly has already reviewed it positively.
