Let Me Have A Country *John Adams HBO Miniseries. There are 2 scenes that were pretty gory for my kids. If you see them talking about small pox inoculation you probably want to skip it. I could hardly watch. Before that when you see militia walking in front of the Adams' home after a battle they are pretty beat up and a couple of carts of dead bodies also. Other than that my kids really enjoyed this. Week 4.
