    On paper this sounds bad, but I'll reserve judgement.
  4. Interesting premise. I wonder how it will come across.

    Horrendous idea helmed by the worst possible people for the job.

    RIP HBO's mentions. Horrifyingly tone deaf.

    A (Cancelled) Dork Prestigious

    With the Spellmans involved as head writers and executive producers, I have an inkling of a notion of a thought that this could be not totally tone deaf and in poor taste, but either way it's still not a good look for HBO to allow the two white dudes who consistently mishandle rape on GoT to do this.

    Grief is only love that’s got no place to go Supporter

    In a broad sense yes. They are both Alternate History about what would have happened had the outcome of a war been different. But I wouldn't think the plot lines would be very similar, considering it's WW2 vs the American Civil War.
