    Yes, I’m anxious to see this miniseries! Wasn’t this supposed to air in December though? I swear I read something about that earlier this year. I guess it got pushed back for whatever reason. No matter to me….MRJ is in it along with Dean Morris and lots of other awesome actors which means I’ll be watching it for sure! =)

    I wouldn’t mine seeing this if I can do so on hulu or Netflix.

  3. Piers says:

    This seemed promising until I read the cast list and saw MRJ as Paul Revere. The man can’t manage accents. He’ll bring it down.

  6. The Beach says:

    I wonder which Dean Norris will show up…the Breaking Bad one (fantastic) or the Dome one (overacting characature)?

    Kevin Ryan Plays Major Pitcairn

  8. John says:

    Really looking forward to this. I would absolutely love of History Channel would so a series on Lafayette, the young flamboyant Frenchman who joined and at 19 years of age fought alongside Washington, Hamilton and others to help America in its fight for independence! A most amazing man who is known in many circles as the adopted son of Washimgton!

    When will season 2 air? My husband and I watched season 1 all episodes, and loved it, and do not want to miss any remaining episodes. Why can’t I find any information on season 2? Come on History channel, you’ve captured our attention, don’t leave us hanging, at least give out information on when season 2 will air so we can mark our calendars.

    I asked History channel whether and when a new season would start and they said just to keep looking for updates. So… No real answer
