Trivia

The real Waco siege lasted fifty-one days, ending on April 19th, 1993. There has been much controversy on who started the fire. Six Branch Davidians were killed in the initial siege. Seventy-six members were killed on April 19th, including more than twenty children. See more »

Goofs

During the entire 51 days, David Koresh retains his mullet haircut. But there is historical archive footage, particularly after the FBI sent video cameras in to the Davidians, in which his hair is relatively short, like a butch cut or a crew cut. See more »

Quotes

[from trailer]
David Koresh: You've looked to me to be your leader. To guide you on this journey. But I'm no leader. I'm a follower, just like you. God has instructed me to stay here and wait for His sign. This is our time to prove through suffering that we are worthy of the miracle that's to come. The Kingdom of Heaven is coming, I promise you.

An Interesting Mini-Series
26 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

The FBI and ATF seize religious leader David Koresh's Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas in the spring of 1993. Taylor Kitsch gives an interesting and excellent perfomance as David Koresh and at times even creepy to be honest. Michael Shannon is also excellent as an FBI Agent who tries to do his job right and with less casualties as possible. The religious and political side of the Series might turn some people off but as someone who doesn't know lots of things about this event in general i don't mind it at all i find good things in both sides of the story and i believe there's an interesting message to be said here and in future episodes and i want to see where this is gonna go to be honest. (A+)
