    For anyone who doesn't realize how close Nixon and his ilk came to hijacking the federal government, this series is required watching. The parallels with today are striking, and the fact that we seem to be so quickly repeating history is shocking. The only comfort that I find is that while Nixon and his cabal were clearly at best mere dabblers in the art of spy craft and political espionage, even by this rather low standard the current (Trump) administration is a pack of bumbling idiots. John Oliver got it right when he could the controversy surrounding Russian interference in the 2016 election "Stupid Watergate." I look forward to watching that documentary a decade or two from now.

    You could tell after about 15 minutes that a great filmmaker tried making a great documentary series, but the History Channel got in the way. This is mostly due to the dramatizations, which I’m sure the History Channel insisted on it to ‘dumb it down’ for as many people as possible. If we have the Nixon tapes, why wouldn’t they use the primary source? Why hire actors to essentially act out the transcripts? It was like a wet blanket every time they cut to the dramatization. They couldn’t just play the actual tapes and like all the other quality documentaries on the Nixon administration? The history channel cares more about “entertainment” than history. I should have known they would have mucked up a series even with an Academy Award-winning documentarian. I would have saved my $10.

    But it is scarily relevant now. Important piece of political history. We're still living it.
