John Adams, Episodes 3 & 4

These segments were important to the biography, but I thought neither was particularly compelling. There were moments, though.

As Abigail was riding up to the chateau where her husband had been living for over a year, her facial expressions were wonderful. She wouldn't have been human had she not been thinking "I've been working my tail off farming that rocky soil in Massachusetts, and you've been living this luxurious existence with servants and enough room to swing a cat in?"

I'm thinking we're going to have to watch the included "Making Of" documentary just to learn how and where they filmed all these opulent diplomatic scenes.
