It's watchable but disappointing so far. There seems to be an agenda but its not in pursuit of accuracy or balance. For instance: Stanton is well known to anyone with a passing interest in the civil war. His relationship with Lincoln was...complicated. Frosty at times. Sure, he went after the conspirators with a vengeance. But his motives for doing it were probably more political than emotional. In Manhunt (2eps in) he comes across as a lugubrious fan boy to his slain idol. It's weird. The showrunner supposedly did some research for this project. I'm really wondering what she read. A broad knowledge of the subject is not apparent yet. Here's hoping for some nuance in the depiction of Edwin Stanton and a more accurate and balanced treatment of the time period in the later episodes.
