Description

In February 1993, the eyes of the world converged on Mount Carmel, a small religious community located just outside of Waco, TX. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) conducted a raid on leader David Koresh and his devoted followers, known as the Branch Davidians. After what became the longest gun battle in U.S. law enforcement history, four ATF agents and six civilians were dead, and dozens more were wounded. A 51-day standoff ensued, and the conflict ended after an FBI siege led to a fire that engulfed the entire Mount Carmel compound, killing 76 men, women, and children.

    This story will anger you from both sides. A terrible tragedy that should have never happened. I am genuinely shocked that the Paramount network aired a series that tells so much of the true story behind Waco and how reckless the FBI was without flinching at Koresh's terrible behavior. It is a human story that will anger and sadden you. A little bit of the writing can be clunky as they try to get important details out but they more than make up for it. The performances are absolutely top notch across the board. This is not escapism. It is dramatic and powerful storytelling of a nasty chapter in this country's history.
  • 'A true story"?

    It may be "based on a true story," but obviously it isn't the true story.

    After watching the newest documentary about what happened at Mt. Carmel to the Branch Davidians in 1993 I was absolutly floored by what I saw. Regaurdless of what you thought happened prior to February 28, 1993 at Mt. Carmel, what happened after was murder. The world got to see what the ATF and FBI wanted them to see then, but now we get to see what actually happened. Watch the documentary and then watch the series.
  • VERY WELL DONE

    I remember vividly the actual days when this story was happening. I was recovering from a surgery and watched everyday. The story is more important for certain people. The questions about the limitations on truth (especially lack of technology); always made me feel angry but not sure how and what went down. It’s hard to believe that people can find such convictions for such impossible costs. The attention to detail is really amazing. Acting is strong enough to keep you interested. I am from Texas and never believed that Waco was anything more than a small college town. But lost people and faulty methods can happen anywhere. Let’s hope no more like this sad quilt ridden half solved puzzle created by taking so many people’s lives.
  • Surprisingly good

    I went in not expecting much, but found it to be really good. Definitely worth watching.

    The fact that people reviewing this can’t look past their political views and just take a TV show for being a TV show is insane. It’s not meant to be 100% factual, it’s not a documentary. After two episodes it is clear that both Kitsch and Shannon did this as something they WANTED to do and not something just for the money. Both have had plenty of work in Hollywood the last couple of years. Add in the so far extremely impressive performances by Caulkin and Leguizamo and you find a show that gets you caring about the characters on both sides of the story, even when you know how horrible the outcome is. Don’t pass this up just because someone is letting their personal stances on subjects that don’t apply here overpower their common sense for a well written and well acted mini series. Again, this is only after two episodes. But I have never bothered to write an iTunes review on any of my 1,250 movies or over 100 TV series I have in my collection, until now. Mostly because I felt like people were not giving this show a fare shake.

    While I’ve enjoyed the 1st 2 episodes, there are many reasons to criticize Waco. First off, there is a clear anti-right wing bias in the writing. There’s many instances which prove this but I won’t get into it right now. 2nd, the dialogue based on characters related to David Caresh’s compound is based on PURE CONJECTURE since nobody with knowledge of those conversations survived to tell their story. 3rd, their are blatant factual errors, not to mention they downplay the Ruby Ridge event and wrap it up in a nice pretty bow. There was ZERO REASON for ATF/FBI to be bothering those people and it led to innocents losing their lives. They were breaking ZERO LAWS. That’s not the case when it comes to the Branch Dividians though. There was child abuse taking place by Caresh and the ATF/FBI needed to step in there. However, i do find it VERY ironic that a story which portrays the POLITICS AND LIES perpetrated by the ATF & FBI is airing at the exact moment in which Americans are questioning their motives behind the trump Russia investigation, now culminating in the American people demanding the release of “The Memo”. The MSM acts as though the FBI is a pillar of honesty and trust and would NEVER allow politics to play a role in their decision making. Yet here you have a perfect example of just that. My how quickly the people forget recent history. MSM is proving they really are the enemy of the people since they refuse to shine a spotlight on obvious corruption and are fighting it tooth and nail. All I’ll say is watch if you want to be entertained, not if you are looking to be informed. Hollywood NEVER gives us the truth.
  • A Must Watch!
