As with his other books, it's an historical look at these individuals. After all, he was an American History teacher before getting into journalism.

I’ve been a fan of Bill and The O'Reilly Factor since forever, I haven’t tuned in regularly for a few years now, due to there not being enough time in the day, but I’ve always liked O'Reilly, there are a few things I don’t agree with him on, but overall he’s a likeable guy. I had my eye on this series since I first learned about it and I thought the first two episodes were great. The old west was an interest of mine when I was younger, but it got pushed away by other interests and hobbies. The Jesse James episode was pretty good, but it pretty much reinforced what I already knew. The Doc Holiday episode was great and I learned a lot. I always knew there was the connection between Holiday and Earp, but I didn’t realize how far it went.

This is the type of the ‘educational’ programming I can tolerate. A little commentary mixed with live action. I can’t stand the dry, boring talking head lecture programming the History channel used to show. Thank God Pawn Stars came along! Show me battles, show me death, show me something that holds my attention span for more than a half of a second and I’m all in. Not some ‘expert’ [nerd] addressing the camera for two hours.

All of the episodes have been real good so far. The last two, Bass Reeves and Butch Cassidy have been my favorites. I can't believe there's only a few episodes left.

That sucks! For some reason I thought there were 12 or 13 episodes total. I guess that explains why they didn't show a preview of the next episode.

Overall great series. Maybe they'll do more one day.
