Last night's episode and the next two are about times I well remember, as a rug-rat, youngster, and teen-ager. Yeah, you heard FDR's real voice a lot in the film clips, newsreels, and when they were talking about his "fireside chats." I well remember listening to those. We'd all gather around the radio and listen quietly. Most of the time I was more or less clueless as to what he was talking about, but I did understand a fair amount of it.

This series is a real an early memory orgy for me. Love it!

And no, I can't say the narrator's delivery particularly bothers me.

Eagerly looking forward to the next.
