Shows badass. It showcases what America used to be about, celebrating achievement and rewarding winners. I also love the commentary by the modern day shot callers like mark Cuban and jack welch.

It's funny how many ppl don't know who jack welch is, and what he's done.

Saw some of it- it's hard to keep track of stuff traveling.

Much of what these men did in history would never be able to be done (legally) now.

I've been watching it. Amazing what they were able to accomplish back then, but I think that's a pretty accurate statement.

I've got them recorded, but haven't started watching yet. Heard nothing but good things so far.

I like how it portrayed the start of unions as squatters who had a legitimate bitch but weren't smart enough to leave when they had guns pointed at them and started throwing rocks instead.............then they got shot. Who would have seen that coming?

This show is incredible! Very cool to see how everything came together. It's neat how one thing was a result of another, with the help of another guy having too much greed and wanting to be the biggest. Now they are on J.P. Morgan, then next will be Ford... then series over?

GE could use him again, at least from what I've seen 'inside'.

They didn't build those businesses themselves.

Too bad the show is not portraying all historically accurate facts though. They sensationalize a lot of events and how they happened. Take Frick for example, he was shot and stabbed multiple times by the assassin, but Frick did not beat the hell out of the guy. That was done by others in the room, which was his office, not a hotel room as portrayed.
