So getting HBO for free for a few months has it's advantages, especially when it comes to the On Demand service. I've been catching up on the "John Adams" mini series via the aforementioned service and I must say, bravo! I've always been into US History, the revolutionary era in particular, and this does not disappoint. Plus it doesn't hurt they filmed some of it in Williamsburg.
So if you have the means, I highly suggest you give it a try. Or if not, wait for the inevitable DVD release.
