Men Who Built America? What is this on, I am not familiar
History Channel, 2 hour long "episodes" talking about guys like Vanderbilt, Rockefeller, Carnegie, etc. Once this episode ends at 10 I think they're replaying it.

I'll definitely have to check it out, thanks for the heads up
No problem, I usually love me some history too. If you like science and some evolution type stuff, History Channel has actually dedicated some serious money into shows about stuff like that too and is having another massive, mini-series with stuff like that in November I think.
Yeah I usually check out a lot of shows on there, but lately haven't got into too much TV besides sports
Anyone that was planning on seeing this, get there yet? Went over the weekend. Amazing. Daniel Day-Lewis is ridiculous and it was scary how much he looked like him. From what I have read about Lincoln, I think he did a great job portraying him.
I saw it last Tuesday. It was fantastic. Lincoln is my favorite President and I couldn't have been happier. I don't think it will be for everyone(some could say it's a little slow) but it is a great portrayal by Day-Lewis. Incredibly well acted and as far as I know, very historically accurate. This type of movie is right in my wheel house (I minored in History and have always loved it).
Yeah my BA is in history, and I could totally understand if people don't like it
