Anyone else see this? Caught the first episode last night. It was pretty well done, imo. The biggest flaw has been the height of the actor portraying the title character. He is hardly taller than Stephen Douglas in the episode.

Wouldn't that be more of a problem with the Stephen Douglas actor?

Is the History Channel normal again, or do the aliens tell Lincoln about Sasquatch before helping him to engineer an ice road? I used to like the real History Channel.

IDK, the Lincoln character towers over no one.

Nowadays in woke America, the character of Abraham Lincoln can be played by a human being of any height or gender or ethnicity or weight.

I understand that the "James Bond" and "Snow White" roles are just some examples that will soon become widespread in the movie industry.

When the History Channel first appeared in the early 1990s, IIRC, I was seeing a young lady that stated, “there is more to life than the History Channel and a six-pack.” I wasn’t convinced……
