Anyone been watching this? I'm late, but it's good stuff.

I watched the first 2 episodes tonight, and my 13 yr old was entertained enough that he watched both of them with me.

I started watching it when it began.

It seems to gloss over a lot of points in our history.

I'd rather watch a dedicated documentary on a certain time or event on PBS.

The most irritating thing is the 'History Channel/Discover' style, with the Liev Schreiber VO, CGI and the sound cues. Makes it fungible with 'The Universe' or 'Life After People'

I agree.

I think the bad CGI and "reenactments" ruined it for me.
