Clearly a work of fiction using known facts as a basis to flesh out everything else. And flesh out they have. Much is conjured and imagined, which I guess one would have to do if a story is to be created. The concept of telling the story is interesting.. could be more of a western but is working out to be a bit more of a political drama, if nothing else. Patton Oswald was a poor choice.. was Frodo Baggins busy? I find the biggest issue is that characters all tend to meld and blend.. no one really stands out. .... for the most part I lose track of who is who because everyone is essentially wearing the same thing... Honestly two episodes and I can't tell you anyone's name beyond Booth, Johnson, Lincoln, and both Marys. Seems to be a story of the Secretary of War more than anything. Couldn't tell you his name... Lincoln's voice is horrible.. cartoonish.. unimpressive.. feeble... but he does look the part.. perhaps much shorter than Lincoln actually was. Actor doesn't seem to be anywhere close to 6'4". Most of the time, they have Lincoln sitting or the only one standing as to perhaps hide the height issue. Sets are good. Low lighting is understood as to be accurate to the time period.. .. REALLY odd that witnesses they question immediately following the assassination show up days later to provide more information when that could have been provided initially. Clearly a method to delay the story and pad out episodes. I will add that this is a story rife for "wokeness" and the standard rewriting of mindsets and attitudes related to historical figured or events.. I mean, of all people, wasn't there a drive to "cancel" Lincoln, The Great Emancipator, at some point???.. I did not see much of that in the first two episodes. Racists are portrayed as racists... I give the creators credit for NOT pulling punches and NOT trying to soften the unkind, hard, edges related to attitudes of the times. That alone tends to lend the show a more realistic aspect, even though it's clearly fiction. More of a political melodrama in a mystery/western costume.....
