I saw ads for this HBO series starring Paul Giamatti in the post office.  I watched the first two episodes and so far I think its pretty good.  Anyone else been watching?

I've watched every episode; I, too, happened upon it by accident---last night was the final episode and I was very sad that it ended. I thought it was quite well done...but I liked the book too.

I will have to try the book.  My tastes usually lean more towards european history but so far from what I've watched this series has really captured my interest.  They've done a fantastic job of making it come alive and I really think Paul Giamatti is underrated as an actor because he is awesome as John Adams (and every other role I've seen him in). 

Makes me glad my hubby is a cable guy and we get all the premium movie channels for free.  I've found some really good stuff on there :)

I've been tivoing it....and have liked it so far. I still have 2 episodes left to watch.

I've really enjoyed it. Nice to see some American History for a change.

Hugs! Juli

I have them all on my DVR and plan on having a marathon once I can free up some time for myself.
