    I was lucky enough to catch this on HBO the other night and I have to say that it was pretty damned entertaining. If you get a chance, watch it. The historical accuracy may have been just a bit off, though not with any of the important factors, IMO.

    Too bad his brother Sam wound up not only more successful, but in the end, more popular.

    I just looked up more info and apparently it's a seven part series. Haha, I saw the first two installments and was feeling a bit unsatisfied at the end. I'm glad there's more.

    More successful ? I guess that is up to interpretation. But being the 2nd president of the US is impressive on a resume
