Normally, PBS dramas are great; this one, not so much. First off, with all the incredible pains to ensure accuracy that went into series like "Foyle's War" or "Downton Abbey," how is it possible that no effort appears to have been made to hire even one actor with an authentic Southern accent? It was also beyond annoying to watch the "Frank & Hot Lips" dynamic lifted from M*A*S*H and placed in an antebellum setting. "They're ruining our war!" was actual dialogue that we're supposed to accept as being period correct. Please! This is a horrible little pastiche of what a PBS drama is supposed to be and what this could have and should have been. Kill it. It's total dreck.
