I have studied Washington and Jefferson a lot, but little on Adams. The miniseries is excellent, giving a good background to the American revolution and the first 50 years of the United States. Adams has generally been overlooked by modern historians, but in recent times his reputation has been rising as he is re-evaluated.
I’m not sure if any NZ station plans to show the miniseries here, as ratings will probably be modest for a US historical series. But I hope they do, as it is an excellent production (to date).Tags: John Adams, Reviews, United States
