Part 2: Hatfields and McCoys

Let me sum Tuesday night’s episode up like this: The McCoys are crazy. I don’t mean they do crazy things (they do) or that some of their actions are questionable (they are) or even that

No, I mean this in the most technical term possible. There has to be a neurological disorder at work here. Possibly inbreeding. I haven’t looked up any of the history; what I know about this fued pre-History Channel is that there was one, it was bloody, and it’s now legendary.

The 2nd of 3 parts was still very good. I don’t mind violence so long as it plays a part in the story and is not gratitious. The violence is necessary to tell the story of this blood fued, so I accept that.

In writing this, I realize that it’s difficult to pinpoint what I didn’t like about the part. Is it that all bridge parts are slower? Not sure, but I can say that I can connect a bit more to the families and for that am grateful.

Rating: B for continuing to keep my interest, for showing a balanced look at the fued, and for what looks to be an explosive (and I do mean that literally) finale tonight. After tonight’s episode I’ll look up the ‘real’ history of the Hatfields & McCoys, but since this is put on by The History Channel, I hope they’re more accurate than a typical Hollywood period piece!

About K. Reed

Romance author with a twist. Too many post-apocalyptic stories, movies, and what-ifs crowded her head, and K Reed decided to do something about it. So she plotted one out, decided an historical post-apocalyptic romance was the way to go, and wrote that one instead. A lover of all things historical, of strong heroes with equally strong heroines, and of sexy pirates, she’s going to explore the dystopian world of plague-ridden 1804 and the gritty criminal element of Victorian England. Luckily she has an understanding family, supportive friends, and a day job that offers her the flexibility she needs to plot, plan, and write. Sure, one day she’d like to travel the country in search of fantastic storylines and great locale pictures, but for now she’ll stick to the east coast and the internet. @kreedauthor www.kreedauthor.com www.kreedauthor.wordpress.com kreedauthor@yahoo.com
