This show has amazing acting and my God do the actors picked to portray JFK, Jack, Jackie, and Joe look just like them!
After reading an extensive amount on JFK through biographies and watching a number of biographical movies, this show is pretty accurate.
- Historic accuracy
- Actors look just like the actual people
- Does a great job covering the key moments in JFK's life while being constrained to one season.
- Shows you both the positive and the dark sides to JFK.
- Covers one of the greatest stories of a man overcoming all odds (chronic pain from back problems, colitis, stomach ulcers, being Irish in a Protestant majority Country, stepping into the shoes of his brother to fulfill the family destiny)
- I wish they had gone further into depth on his childhood and the moments that made him the man he was. Like his extensive time in the sick ward at his schools, time at the Mayo Clinic, and his dealings with chronic pain. This is because I have chronic pain from back problems and that's one of the main reasons I'm such a huge JFK fan.
- It is not all historically accurate and some major historical events had to be left out for the sake of time, but they did a good job choosing what to include.
If you are a fan of history, JFK, or just want to watch a highly engaging and very easy to binge TV Series, this is for you!
