  • The History Channel examines the psychology of Abraham Lincoln.

    This documentary was advertised to be something a bit different. Unlike most documentaries about historic figures Lincoln, delved into the psychology of Abraham Lincoln and his close friends and family. This was certainly a very unique way to look at someone of Lincoln's importance.

    The first few minutes of the show started off a bit slow, and it never really picked up a whole lot. It was a very slow show, which would explain why it ran for three hours. Frankly, they could have cut it down to two hours without losing very much in terms of content. The slowest speaker, Gore Vidal, is a knowledgeable person, but is just so slow with his thoughts and delivery.

    I thought the show was good overall, but its length and pace was a bit of a drag. The way this documentary specialized in the area of studying Lincoln's psychology was an interesting way to look at things. Unfortunately, this becomes a problem with the slow pace. All three hours were nothing but one sad, depressing event after another. By the end, I almost couldn't wait for it to end. I don't think this is one of the documentaries I plan on watching again anytime soon.moreless
