I'm torn on this. On one hand it sounds interesting, on the other, it sounds like it's a very skewed and historically inaccurate record. Or at least, they choose to leave out the vast majority of anything not Protestant and basically give the concept of "God" to evangelicals, not allowing for much at all from any other faith, not even other Christian ones. Review of it here:
Starts tonight on PBS and airs through the week.

It looks interesting to me. So long as a person doesn't take shows like this to be the only truth and maybe then it can spark interest in doing some personal research. Unfortunately between hubbys surgery and midterms this week, no TV time for me.

It could be interesting. Unfortunately, the majority of those who watch it will just nod their heads and say, "Yep. That's how it happened. That's how it is" without considering that even though this is on PBS, which usually does a pretty good job of unbiased and thorough representations of topics, it's not infallible. It's sad that just one perspective is given any in-depth attention, and so many others are brushed over or neglected all together. It could reinforce the inaccurate idea that many have that America is a Christian nation.

I'm not going to watch it tonight because I don't want to throw up my wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.
