I'm watching it right now on History Television. Patrick Swayze is a Southern gentleman, Kirstie Allie is a Northern abolitionist married to a Negro. Swayze and Allie just had a shouting match at Allie's brothers home in Maryland. David Carradine is a Southerner married to Swayze's ex-girlfriend. He beats and drugs her. Earlier there was a secessionist rally in New Orleans. They sang "Dixie".
War is approaching...soon. I hope. Because this soap opera is boring so far!
