A rather bland retelling of this dramatic event in history. it gives a lot of detail especially about Oswald and shows Oswald as the only assassin-no conspiracy theories in this film. Rob Lowe plays Kennedy as a rather low key guy who learns to stand up to the hawkish generals whose solution to anything is to drop bombs. Jacqueline Kennedy is portrayed as a little frumpish and the actress portraying her is too short and plump to be believable. I far preferred Oliver Stone's 'JFK'-may not have stuck to 'the facts' but was a lot more interesting and had some great performances.

I'd love to see a truthful documentary, shown every week for one year, which entails somebody reading from the Warren Commission Report, then pointing out all the variances, major problems and contradictions in it. Otherwise I cannot accept such balderdash as this show.
