History, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
MINISERIES PREMIERE: Part 1 of 3. This isn’t very good, and certainly isn’t to be believed as any sort of accurate historical account – but this channel, these days, has a very liberal definition of what counts as, and belongs on, History. In any event, this three-part, six-hour drama about the birth of the American Revolution, though modernized, actionized and with its heroes buffed up and lionized, at least gets certain facts right, and pays attention to an often underlooked period in American history. Just don’t expect too much – not even with, eventually, Dean Norris as George Washington.

You are so right. That is a nice way of saying the "history" channel has lost it's way. And to think, it used to be so good.

I think Dean Norris will be playing Benjiman Franklin
