    What annoyed me is how they seem to be plugging the mini-series into some of their reality shows. American Pickers was talking about the Hatfield-McCoy feud on Monday's show and the previews for next week's Pawn Stars looks like it will be mentioned there too. I understand it but it makes it look like the shows are even more staged than usual.

    Looks good to me. This is definately not a Western, said the Californian.

    My mom used to refer to the Hatfields and the McCoys all the time. I've got the recording scheduled!

    They also have a documentary about it. I know nothing about the story, wondering if I should skip the documentary until after the mini-series so the story isn't spoiled for me!

    Or just happen to run into Bob Dylan when they had an album of his to sign, or the NASCAR driver when going to race go karts. I still like to pretend that the stuff people bring in is really theirs, even though it's probably just as staged as the little skits they do.

    I doubt if Paul Revere had six shooters. Looks like 1818 for the first six shooter. :)

    Is it one episode per week or 3 nights in a row?

    You might want to manually set the recordings -- I set up an SP (first run) and, initially, all three were scheduled. Then I checked today, and the the second was missing. Only reason given was that it was within the 28 day period....which is nuts because each ep is singularly named with a 1, 2 or 3.

    When I first set it up, it was six one-hour episodes. Now, it's three two-hour episodes. So you might want to be sure that it's not just two ones being replaced by a two...

    Hatfields and McCoys mostly used rifles but did have handguns. Six shooters? Maybe. Not sure.

    well, since its on History Channel I guess it will be entertaining but not historically correct :)
