During the revolutionary war there was a really bad farmer, husband, son, and father, Abe Woodhull, who gets convinced to spy on behalf of the patriots (mainly due to childhood friendship and a hot woman (not as hot as his wife)). I really want to like this show as I greatly enjoy American history and spy dramas, but this period piece just isn't very good or believable--too much soap opera. I hope it might get better, but it seems too half hearted to get anywhere; shame since the real time period and events are amazingly interesting.
