The wait for the German fans to see “Hatfields & McCoys” will be over soon.  Starting on 19 October, 2013, German channel RTL Crime will show the hit series about the two feuding families.
Rumours that they’ll adapt the title for Germany to “PUMA & Adidas” are incorrect, though.

2012 Ambarussa Yuletide Contest

Posted in hatfields & mccoys, tv with tags , , , , on 11 December, 2012 by ambarussa

It’s time for our traditional Yuletide Contest – millions cheer!


This year, we didn’t go for a DVD (most of Damian’s fans already have a complete collection at home):


Damian O'Hare as Ellison Hatfield in History's "Hatfields & McCoys"

It’s a real photo (a little different from the one displayed above), not a print-out, so you can frame it in gold and tinsel and hang it over your sofa, stick it inside your locker or donate it to your local pub. Of course you can also get it signed (if we ever learn where to send autograph requests to, that is).


Real chocolate. Handmade. Not the tasteless factory stuff – chocolate-chocolate. Milk, dark, white, nuts, orange – your choice!

And what do you have to do to win picture and chocolate?

Just send an email to

webgnome at ambarussa. net

and answer the following question:

“Who was Ellison Hatfield?”

A) The drummer of “Hatfield and the North”

B) The brother of “Devil” Anse Hatfield

C) The mayor of Springfield

Now that’s difficult.

IMPORTANT: Please put “Contest” or “Damian O’Hare” in the subject line.

Deadline: 16th December, 2012, noon GMT.

Please read the following rules before you send off your mail.


1. By participating in this contest, you confirm that you have read, understood and accepted the rules.

2. You have to be at least 16 years old to participate.

3. Please be fair: only send in one mail per person.

4. No cash pay-out of your prize.

5. No correspondence will be held over the outcome of the contest.

6. If you are the winner, you’ll have to provide us with your name and address.

7. We’ll send your prize out asap, but have no influence on postal services.

8. Should, for any reason beyond our control, one of the prizes not be available, we’ll replace it with a different prize of the same value.

9. We accept entries from all over the world. If, however, your country does not allow the import of chocolate, you’ll “only” get the picture (sorry about that).

“No, it’s not feckin’ Coronation Street!”

And in case you haven’t done so yet: pre-order Hatfields and McCoys on DVD!



Posted in events, hatfields & mccoys, tv with tags , , , , , on 24 September, 2012 by ambarussa

Emmys for Kevin Costner (Actor, Miniseries or Movie), Tom Berenger (Supporting Actor, Miniseries or Movie) and Don Cassidy (Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Miniseries or a Movie)!

I wish there was some sort of “Best All-Cast” category, because everybody involved with “Hatfields and McCoys” did a fantastic job!

I’m curious how the series will be received in the UK. Last thing I heard, Channel 5 will show it in October.

You can already pre-order the DVD on amazon; it’s scheduled for release 0n 12 November.

Look who’s at the Emmy’s…
