This down-and-dirty epic doubles down on storied family intrigue while also emerging as the best made-for-TV western saga since AMC's 2006 Broken Trail.

There's a darkness that sometimes makes us examine who we're rooting for and why.

It is a powerful and often heartbreaking piece of filmmaking that ponders just how thin our veneer of civilization really can be.

This is a high-class cast, and all the performances were worth watching.

Oct 26, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The supporting cast might deserve its own review just to talk about the great deal of people who turn in good performances. But the highlight of the supporting actors is Mare Winningham, who might well be the MVP of the series.

The combination of powerful acting from all levels of the copious cast and the authentic-feeling depiction of primitive backwoods life in the bleak aftermath of the American Civil War isn't pretty, but it's morbidly compelling.

... the most watched program ever on The History Channel when it first broadcast in 2012, [it] is a fine attempt to create engaging drama while remaining true to the history.

Jan 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Once the characters sink in and start embracing their absurd, hick-ish nature, and the show stops trying to marry its inherent tone with stuffy, needless melodrama, it becomes a much more enjoyable ride.

May 29, 2012 | Full Review…

All in all, this is a solid miniseries, worth watching for anyone intrigued by the subject matter. But I wanted it to be great, and I'm bummed that it's not.
