Watched a few episodes-did not care for it and I am a real history buff.

I would like to have seen some episodes on the more obscure,  lesser known First Ladies.

 

Oh well, maybe something later.

Agree, perhaps is they'd picked some less predictable subjects the show would have been better received.

I really could not separate the actors from the characters. Especially, Viola Davis who I usually like. It was like she was trying too hard. I stopped watching.

These 3 were fairly easy stories to tell.

 

I watched wondering how much more is there to know about Eleanor Roosevelt?

 

There are probably dozens of interesting and fascinating stories to tell; someone with an interest in history just needs to do the work.

I agree.  I usually like Viola Davis but she didn't do well in the Role.  She did over act and she kept pursing her lips in weird way that was very distracting.

EXACTLY! It bothered me and all i could see was Viola trying to be Michelle.  I'm glad I'm not the only one!
