The second season premiere featured Paul Revere and Sam Adams and the beginnings of the American revolution. Legends and Lies uses dramatic reenactments and explanatory segments with expert interviews and historians` commentary.
Solid ratings, sour reviews
Despite the solid 7.6/10 rating on IMDb, many of the reviewers were disappointed by the series – its shallow approach, many factual mistakes, and perpetuation of the very myths it claims to dispel. Legends and Lies: The Real West originally premiered to an audience of 1.02 million viewers, with 123,000 in the 24-54 adult demo, raising Fox`s average for the time slot 60% in total viewership. The second season, subtitled The Patriots premiere did even better, with 1.44 million viewers. There has been no news of a third season coming, so please stay tuned for announcements.
