Yes 7 part as far as I know. I removed from the DVR once I found that HBO-HD OnDemand had it there. I have heard good things so far about this series.

While it is disappointing that this isnt being released on Blu-ray, I wouldnt think this would be right now. In the cost\benefit ratio I think the cost would be too high and outweigh the sales(benefit) to release this or any other show at this time. Right now I think they only released Sopranos and even that is incomplete . HBO will come around just give it time.

It helps if you are at least generally informed on the events that took place. Nonetheless it will at least spark interest if you are not.

please note that I am in no way implying that you are uninformed about anything.
Hey Mel Gibson was badass in The Patriot

I like Mel. He's got range. He was great in Apocalypto. Complete transformation as the lead in that. What he did to his teeth alone. Wow.

What I meant was that The Patriot (Mel) took liberties with the facts on how the U.S. attained liberty for the sake of his glorified character. Point being that I agree he was badass but only because he wanted to be.
to much thought? maybe.

As previously stated is is on HBO Ondemand in both HD and SD versions. They also show repeats during the week, but I am not sure how they do it (if its jsut the previous Sundays episode or all of them). I believe its on episode 3 or 4 (the 1st week they did 2).

I saw what Bill hunt said, hopefully HBO decides to start releasing more on Blu-ray, would be nice to have a few of their series that deserve to be watched in HD.
