| Bad History, Vapid Script and, Hell, it Wasn't Even Filmed in Texas
I don't know why I expected anything more of the gawd-awful History Channel, which has no respect for history or truth. The script not only perpetuates the "Yellow Rose" fabrication but asserts a sexual liaison with Houston. There was no "zombie of the Alamo" who crawled from the pyre.
The script is vapid and words like "dilly-dally" and cussin' don't contribute authenticity. The sex is nothing but gratuitous nonsense. Some of the major actors more-or-less pulled off their roles but nearly all of the secondary characters needed direction and editing, or...well, cut.
Hell, the damn thing wasn't even filmed in Texas. Shame, History Channel, shame on you.
