    I've been waiting for this one for a while, being both interested in the Waco incident as well as a member of Team Taylor Kitsch.

    I'm not sure that trailer did a whole lot for me, though. Hmm.

    Yeah. They started as like a poor mans mtv/fx now they're a poor mans amc?

    And it always seems weird to watch mature shows/movies on cable fully edited.

    I think the rebrand is the first step in an attempt to move to the next level. Viacom wants it to be a prestige channel now, like on the level of something like AMC, as you mentioned.

    I guess this Waco series is supposed to be one of the first steps in that direction. I don't see why they can't pull it off if they really want to.

    Looks like Spike will be rebranded and they will be airing shows on Paramount. That’s too bad, who didn’t love those 14 hour marathons every Friday of Gangland on Spike?

    If you're interested in Waco read Absolute Zero. Written by an FBI HRT Sniper who was at Waco and Ruby Ridge.

    We really have to do the Waco again? This guy's Koresh accent is horrible, and if they glorify this shit in any way the whole production team should voluntarily in a fire.

    Kitsch seems like a pretty good choice for Koresh. Should be interesting.

    I've heard mixed things. A lot of people seem to like it and think it's underrated.

    I couldn't get into it. My main gripes were the Mars desert setting. Visually it just wasn't cool to look at. Also the aliens looked stupid to me. And the story was boring.

    Avatar > John Carter and I don't even like Avatar. Just my opinion though. You should definitely check it out for yourself.

    That's my fear as well

    I picked up a copy of the official report on Waco at a garage sale once- it's a very thick read- and lemme tell you, even taking it with a giant grain of salt, some of the shit that went on was totally batshit crazy. The operation got bungled horribly, and the Davidians were fuckin whacked out of their gourds. The "bunker" section of the compound had spent rounds so deep (3 ft) that there were bodies completely concealed beneath.
    It's also worth noting that the scale seems to sometimes go by the wayside. There were something like 70 or 80 people inside when it finally went tits up for good, and all but 9 died.
