Hatfields & McCoys on The History Channel

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.

I thought the same thing. Nice reminder for me to set the DVR though.

You can request a thread merge from the mods. If anyone cares. I don't.

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

I'm going to Tivo it and watch it later. I go to sleep too early to actually watch it when it's on.

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.

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.
