I just watched the first of three episodes of the History Channel's three-part mini-series, Hatfields and McCoys. It's surprisingly good, though there are so many members of each family that it's hard to keep some of them straight. However, this isn't keeping me from enjoying it, or from wanting to watch the next two parts.

I wonder if they'll do a novelization. I would totally read it.

We were watching this last night but I thought it a bit slow. I understand that they are attempting to cover all the rumors as to how the feud between the families began but it is a lot. You're right with there being a lot of people and how quickly they jump through the years and there is not much mention when thye do.

Like when Randall and his boys, who were grown up, went to get their relatives out of jail for killing the guy who threatened to kill them. Hatfield's son who was blinded in an eye when he was younger was all grown up, too. But if you hadn't been aware or watching, say you just came into the show at that point, you wouldn't have realized how much time had gone by.

A little slow in places, and I wish there had been year-dates on it, yes. Keeping all the various sons straight was difficult too, as all but Johnsy are hard to tell from the other (Johnsy is hot, mm, yes)

Of course, the feud would start slow and build up a bit before it completely exploded. I am interested in seeing where it will go, though. Makes me want to read about them.
