I usuall like history themed shows but I had my problems with this.
I read somewhere they totally messed up the locations and wardrobe. While that may or may not be true, I´m no expert, there were other things wrong with it. The main characters, Santa Anna and Houston, are very two-dimensional. There are no layers of character I spotted. Rest of the characters are basically the same, no depth. I understand these are historic figures but I think there should be enough recordings to give them more to play with. Further there are to many b-storylines that do nothing to support the whole that could easily been left out.
All in all it was OK but nothing I would highly recommend.
