I wonder if the History channel thought/knew it would be as successful as it has been. Absolutely a DVD I'll have to get.

Yea I am somewhat hoping they do a couple more. I mean I'm sure they can probably do a few more with all the history between the two families.

I watched it when it first aired...found it entertaining, but it was incredibly hard to follow.

i actually didnt want to watch it, didnt seem to catch my intrest....but i decided to try it anyways and ended up watching all 3 episodes and recording them on my dvr. graphic content and strong language....my favorite :D lmao
im actually surprised the history channel let them get away with all of the "GD" and "s" bombs and brutal killings.
I've got the 1st ep PVR'd... gonna let em pile up and have a mini marathon! Glad to read it's as good as it looks

Yea I'm not usually a big Costner fan but really thought him and Paxton played their parts really well. Read a historian said that Costner showed how Devil wouldn't always want violence and McCoys obsession with the Hatfields very well. I couldn't even recognize tom berenger, took me a while to figure out which one he was!

Being a West Virginian I grew up hearing stories about them. I DVRed the series but haven't gotten to watch them yet.
Cool side note. There is a road in the northern part of my county in a little settlement called Cornstalk (yes, that really is it's name, it is up near Sunshine and Trout...not kidding) and when you drive down the road there are mailboxes on both sides of the road. If you watch closely you will notice every few mailboxes that Hatfield is on some of the boxes on one side of the road and McCoy is on some of the mailboxes on the other side of the road.
I also went to school with a girl who was the great-great-neice of Randolph McCoy.
Good Ole Jim

I just watched the first episode(have all 3 on my DVR). I'm hooked. The acting is great, the plot is well defined, and it never gets slow at any point. Even though I'm only through one episode, I can already highly recommend this.
