I just received the copy of the DVD from the library and watched the entire series in 2/3 days. The DVD also had a "making of..." side story which I thought added quite a bit to the details that they went to in order to be as authentic as possible i.e. the tar and feathering episode. I knew vary little about Adams and his family. I now feel that I know quite a bit.
In the "making of..." section McCullough noted that the correspondence between John and Abigail is on microfilm that would stretch 5 miles!
I thought that it was possibly the best thing that I have seen on a "made for TV" production.
