Much better than I anticipated, particularly the young actor, Rege-Jean Page, who plays Chicken George. The series does what it should -- put the present-day viewer in touch with the abomination that was slavery in the history of the United States. Can a nation built on the African slave trade have any other destiny but that of destruction? That's the question I have.

I liked it more than the original. More warfare, but same events for the most part. They don't leave out much from the original either.
