While I think beards are for wizards and Rangers of the North only, I fully support Noel Fisher in this. And all Beard Awards should go to Hatfields & McCoys.

Beard Award for the win!

Then again… maybe not.

The good news is that “Hatfields & McCoys” will be aired over here in the UK. How well it will do on Channel 5 has yet to be seen.

Maybe they plan a “family evening” with Hatfields & McCoys/Dallas…

Damian O’Hare as Ellison Hatfield and Kevin Costner as “Devil Anse” Hatfield in “Hatfields & McCoys”.


No specific date has been mentioned yet, apart from the mini series being part of the “autumn line-up”.

Anyway. This hopefully means that a Region 2 DVD will become available. I’ll keep you posted.

Ratings over at IMDB are currently at 8.3. Some critics don’t seem to agree with that, but I think it’s justified. I’m actually rather baffled by people complaining about bad language, gore and violence – what did they expect a family feud to be? People pillow-fighting in the woods?

Anyway, if you’ve missed this epic family saga, you can still catch up on the History website; all three episodes are available online (alas only to people in the USA).

For a good review with some analysis of the audience demographics, please go here: Los Angeles Times. According to them, an unexpected high number of women tuned in for “Hatfields & McCoys”; 45% rather than the for History usual 30%. I have no idea why that might be…
