Can't say I'll be watching it. The whole concept of feuds and grudges turns me off.

We will be watching here alright. My Grandma's Mother was a Hatfield before she married. I remember hearing stories of Devil Anse Hatfield and his clan, and of the Feud. The way I heard it, William, or Anse, shot Harman McCoy during the Civil War, and Harman saw him do it. Then there was a pig, and a love affair. The way Grandma told it, the feud almost started a Civil War between Kentucky and West Virginia. Inlaws and outlaws.
I also see a lot of parallels with this and what is happening all around us today...

What I don't fully understand is the thing with the daughter, why her brothers were going to kill the guy who wanted to make her his wife, and why her "honor" was soiled by him. Except for religious belief, I really don't understand that part.
