It is a drama series that embodies the meaning of American life for a period of time. The series deals with an epic family epic exploring American identity after a parallel life to the twin brothers Dominic and Thomas Birdsey. These two brothers face a different path throughout their lives and during the last half of the twentieth century.
The obvious question is why or even how anybody could or would sit through such a thing. And the answer, equally obvious to anyone who watches even five minutes, is the awesome performance of Mark Ruffalo as both twins.
With an irritatingly stylish camera move unnecessarily teasing us before a big reveal, through the final scenes, by which time the viewer is more exhausted than enlightened, this is one of the more disappointing misfires of the home viewing year.
