When it first came out we had a chance to see Hamilton on Broadway or Songs of Innocence on consecutive nights. We have never regretted our decision and I have not seen Hamilton yet but I plan on it now that it’s free

Opening number was the best and to me it went downhill from there. I have had friends and family members hyping it up for years now so it had a ton to live up to. There is so much to take in, I'll have to re-watch again to try to catch everything.

Favorite character, by far, the King of England haha.

I have a hunch it won't be a huge hit with our audience.

I agree the entire thing was great. I didn’t know a ton about Alexander Hamilton going in so I learned a lot too. I was fascinated at the pacing of it all. It was so good.

Old guy question: how do we get access to it for free?

Yeah, those were pretty great too.

I haven’t watched it yet. I don’t generally like the type of music that is listed in the Disney+ description. So should I just avoid it?

Hamilton made me investigate the Disney bundle. You can get disney, hulu & espn+ for $12.95. They are giving me credit for my current espn + subscription. Was a no brainer for me. My Youtube tv is going to $65 next month. So much for cord cutting... for wife, frndly TV now has all three Hallmark channels for $8. May go to basic cable for local stations unless some knows better option.

Why didn't you pick up Hulu w/ Live TV and drop YouTubeTV?

Digital antenna for local stations. Unless you are in a hole somewhere you can't pick them up. Basic antenna usual has a range out to 50 miles or so.

I'm in a hole in Lynchburg. Still no WSLS even after the reassignment of channels.

I pay for the things I want to watch. My media usage is NON STOP.

Watched it with my girls and it was a solid musical production. But the banter wasn't near as witty as was hyped. Unfortunately I fell asleep and missed the final duel. It was clearly worth going back to finish it off. For the record, John Adams was one tough dude and not to be dismissed.

I watched it last night. I thought it was great. King George was a favorite and hilarious. I loved the style and some of the one liners were great. My biggest beef was not being able to get all of the lines of the "rap Battles" I went back and caught them but it took some rewinding. other than that I had no complaints. Also the eye of the hurricane scene was absolutely phenomenally done.
