For anyone who missed "The Sons of Liberty," the History Channel's 3-part, 6-hour mini-series that aired Sunday through Tuesday, it will be repeated in its entirety this Friday, from 6 pm to midnight.

(Image removed from quote.)

They take a few liberties with language and a romantic subplot, but much of it is historically accurate, and brings history to life. Yes, that's Henry Thomas, the kid from ET: The Extraterrestrial, playing John Adams.
I watched bits and pieces of it; good acting.  sure they will be showing reruns. 
from what I have read they took lots of liberties and especially with the brutality of the Brits. 
Ben Franklin was the man!

I too watched parts of it.    I couldn't get hooked though.    Like you, the show made the British look particularly brutal.    I must have missed school that day.

school white washes that period (actually the colonists were pretty brutal especially to customs officers, but also to loyalists). Once the war started, the British could be pretty Brutal- Ferguson in the carolinas wasn't exactly a model of chivalry

The Larry Wilmore episode about Bill Cosby was pretty entertaining. Pretty low-key alternative to some of the other nightly shows; will be interested to see how it develops.

I've been pretty impressed with the Nightly Show so far.  Seems like they aren't afraid to discuss what are typically 'Oh hell... I'm not going near that!' issues with humor and honesty.  That said, they really only get into the issues with about as much depth as a story on WTOP. Would rather see Wilmore given a non-satire show with an hour slot and a panel discussion without monologues up front. I bet that'd be pretty good TV.

I saw some of the episodes a while back.  Fall maybe?  Don't remember what network it was on.  Was OK.

Fallon's remake of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air intro was awesome.

Heck yeah it was.

A lot less humor than I was expecting... but I imagine they'll probably start to fold that in as the series gains steam.

you can see jimmy already has a lot of traits of saul goodman but isn't confident enough to have them all yet. im pumped to see his development. gonna be awesome.

side note but the episode was shot incredibly well and i expect more of the same from Vince and his crew. BB was fantastically shot.
