When I stumbled upon this on hbo, I instantly fell in love with it. I enjoy American history immensely and this was a great perspective through the eyes of John Adams.
Paul Giamatti is terrific! This film re-assured me of his grand acting abilities. He seems to be underrated and unnoticed at times, however when this came out, all eyes were on Paul. Laura Linney, I have never heard of her before this series and when I watched her performances, I was impressed. She gives great raw emotion to Abigail Adams, it's a role to watch for sure. The always intriguing Davis Morse as the great Pres. Washington was excellent and definitely interesting to see his facial reactions and presence to some of his presented situations.
Overall this is a splendid mini-series with super talent, dialogue and crazy suspenseful scenes. A must see for any history and acting fan to be honest.
