Thumbs down John Adams What Gives????

Is HBO on crack??? Why release John Adams only on DVD, when it was clearly filmed in HD and it looks incredible on HBO-HD, i can't imagine what it would look like on Blu-Ray, anybody know what gives???

Maybe they think only old people care about the American revolution and since old people haven't been sold on blu ray yet...

But I feel you bro that show is f*@king amazing and so is the book.
That shot of the battle at Bunker hill from across the river, that would be bluuuuuuuuuuuuu heaven.

They've aired 3 episodes so far (they showed 2 episodes the first night), and I've seen re-runs on several times.

John Adams takes more of a behind the scenes political approach to the revolution. Think of it as The Wire meets The Patriot but if the The Patriot didn't suck Mel Gibson's alls.

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.
