U.S. history buffs won't want to miss this epic miniseries about one of America's greatest founding fathers John Adams. The mini-series is based on the 2002 book, John Adams, written by David McCullough, and stars three Academy Award nominated actors: Paul Giamatti, Laura Linney and Tom Wilkinson.

I like period shows especially those who are based on actual history. So I really enjoyed this one. The production is without flaws, however I have one small issue. This beeing a mini series they make huge leaps in the timeline which for me being not American and therefore not well versed in Amercan History, made it at times a little tough to follow. And the last two episodes were a bit slow. Although Giamatti´s performance was without flaw the higlight for me was Laure Linney. Every second she was on screen was worth the time.
