Mini serija Mesec Komanča, od tri epizode, je uvod u jednu od najuspešnijih vestern TV serija Usamljena Golubica iz 1989. godine. To je uzbudljiva je priča o ratovima između Komanča i Teksašana od 1858. do 1865. godine, a priča je iz mlađih dana Gasa Mek Kreja i Vudrou Kola koje su u Usamljenoj Golubici maestralno odglumili Robert Dival i Tomi Li Džons. Treba mnogo hrabrosti da bi se prihvatilo proslavljenih uloga legendi američkog filma, ali Stiv Zan (Gus McCrae) i Karl Urban (Woodrow F. Call) preuzeli su ih bez oklevanja i nisu pogrešili. Hronika indijansko-teksaških ratova počinje kada se Gas i Vudrou pridružuju slavnom Inišu Skalu (V. Kilmer). Pod komandom obrazovanog, ali i vrlo ekscentričnog Iniša Skala, rendžeri štite teritoriju od neprestanih napada poglavice Komanča Grbavog Bizona (W. Studi), njegovog ostrašćenog sina Plavog Patka (A. Beach), čuvenog konjokradice Vuka Koji Udara (J. Joss) i skoro neuhvatljivog kralja meksičkih bandita. Kada Skalu ukradu konja, on kreće u potragu za njima, unapređujući i Mek Kreja i Kola kapetane... Trojici rendžera još pomažu poznati tragač iz plemena Kikapu, kao i vojnici Džošua Dits (K. Robinson), Džek Spun (R. Merriman) i Pia Aj Parker (T. Baker), a svi se oni bore da zaštite osvojenu teritoriju od Komanča koji po svaku cenu nastoje da zadrže tradicionalne običaje i način života.

Krajem 19. veka, vlasnik velike kanadske železničke industrije šalje svog sina Džejmsa (L. Macfarlane) u Hong Kong da dovede najbolje kineske radnike za gradnju pruge. Jedan od radnika, koje Džejms dovodi je i siroče po imenu Mali Tigar (Li Sun). Ono što on ne zna je da je Mali Tigar zapravo devojka Mala Tigrica, koja krijući svoj identitet pokušava sebi da obezbedi bolji život. Ispunjena nadom da će u novom svetu izgraditi nov život i otkriti istinu o davno izgubljenom ocu, koji je nekada davno kao radnik takođe odveden u Kanadu. Ona napušta Kinu brodom koji kreće prema Zlatnoj planini. Stigavši, otkriva da svaka milja železnice iziskuje hrabrost, a seje strah i smrt. Umeće baratanja eksplozivima Male Tigrice pomaže joj da savlada mukotrpan posao razbijanja planine. Ali, još joj teže pada otkriće da su njeni nadređeni korumpirani i okrutni rasisti. Zlostavljani radnici bore se sa opasnostima, usamljenošću i brutalnošću, gledajući svoje sapatnike kako svakodnevno ginu na planinskim liticama. Uza sve ovo, Mala Tigrica u strahu skriva svoju veliku tajnu: ona je zapravo prelepa mlada žena i gaji osećaje prema Džejmsu. Odlučuje da mu otkrije svoju tajnu. Dok par nastoji da sakrije svoju romansu, Mala Tigrica otkriva nameru njenih nadređenih da prevare Džejmsovog oca (S. Neill). Pokušavajući ih razotkriti, dovešće vlastiti život u pitanje... Gvozdeni put je priča o ljubavi koja ruši tabue dva suprotstavljena sveta - Istoka i Zapada; o odlučnosti i hrabrosti Male Tigrice; o preobražaju Džejmsa Nikola od neodgovornog gada do čoveka od karaktera; o zaboravljenim životima hiljada kineskih radnika i o rizicima u koje se odvažna mlada žena mora upustiti u svojoj potrazi za boljim životom.

DŽON ADAMS, EPIZODA 1: PRISTUPI ILI UMRI
John Adams, Episode 1: Join or Die (2008)

[Paul Giamatti ... John Adams, Laura Linney ... Abigail Adams, Danny Huston ... Samuel Adams, John Bedford Lloyd ... Richard Palmes, Justin Theroux ... John Hancock, Ritchie Coster ... Captain Preston, Guy Henry ... Jonathan Sewall, Steven Hinkle ... Young John Quincy Adams, Madeline Taylor ... Young Nabby Adams, Brennan Brown ... Robert Treat Paine, Boris McGiver ... Robert Goddard, Tom Beckett ... Elbridge Gerry, Bill Buell ... Justice Lynde, Vincent Renart ... Andrew Holmes, Melissa Blue ... First Mourner]
- Part I: Join or Die (1770 A.D. - 1774 A.D.). The first episode opens with a cold winter in Boston on the night of the Boston Massacre. It portrays John Adams arriving at the scene following the gunshots from British soldiers firing upon a mob of Boston citizens. Adams, a respected lawyer in his mid-30s known for his belief in law and justice, is therefore summoned by the accused Redcoats. Their commander, Captain Thomas Preston asks him to defend them in court. Reluctant at first, he agrees despite knowing this will antagonize his neighbors and friends. Adams is depicted to have taken the case because he believed everyone deserves a fair trial and he wanted to uphold the standard of justice. Adams' cousin Samuel Adams is one of the main colonists opposed to the actions of the British government. He is one of the executive members of the Sons of Liberty, an anti-British group of agitators. Adams is depicted as a studious man doing his best to defend his clients. The show also illustrates Adams' appreciation and respect for his wife, Abigail. In one scene, Adams is shown having his wife proofread his summation as he takes her suggestions. After many sessions of court, the jury returns verdicts of not guilty of murder for each defendant. The episode also illustrates the growing tensions over the Coercive Acts ("Intolerable Acts"), and Adams' election to the First Continental Congress. [Director: Tom Hooper] [David McCullough (book)] [TV Episode, 1 of 7 Episodes, 69 min, 1.78 : 1, Biography, Drama, History, USA]

DŽON ADAMS, EPIZODA 2: NEZAVISNOST
John Adams, Episode 2: Independence (2008)

[Paul Giamatti ... John Adams, Laura Linney ... Abigail Adams, Stephen Dillane ... Thomas Jefferson, David Morse ... George Washington, Zeljko Ivanek ... John Dickinson, Danny Huston ... Samuel Adams, Justin Theroux ... John Hancock, John Dossett ... Benjamin Rush, Steven Hinkle ... Young John Quincy Adams, Madeline Taylor ... Young Nabby Adams, Clancy O'Connor ... Edward Rutledge, Tom Beckett ... Elbridge Gerry, Brennan Brown ... Robert Treat Paine, Ed Jewett ... James Duane, Del Pentecost ... General Henry Knox]
- Part II: Independence (1774 A.D. - 1776 A.D.). The second episode covers the disputes among the members of the Second Continental Congress towards declaring independence from Great Britain as well as the final drafting of the Declaration of Independence. At the continental congresses Adams is depicted as the lead advocate for independence. He is in the vanguard in establishing that there is no other option than to break off and declare independence. He is also instrumental in the selection of then-Colonel George Washington as the new head of the Continental Army. However, in his zeal for immediate action, he manages to alienate many of the other founding fathers, going so far as to insult John Dickinson, a peace-loving Quaker member of the Continental Congress, implying that the man suffers from a religiously based moral cowardice, making him a "snake on his belly". Later, Benjamin Franklin quietly chastens Adams, saying, "It is perfectly acceptable to insult a man in private and he may even thank you for it afterwards but when you do so publicly, it tends to make them think you are serious." This points out Adams' primary flaw: his bluntness and lack of gentility toward his political opponents, one that would make him many enemies and which would eventually plague his political career. It would also, eventually, contribute to historians' disregard for his many achievements. The episode also shows how Abigail innovatively copes with issues at home as her husband was away much of the time participating in the Continental Congress. She employs the use of then pioneer efforts in the field of preventative medicine and inoculation against smallpox for herself and the children. [Director: Tom Hooper] [David McCullough (book)] [TV Episode, 2 of 7 Episodes, 90 min, 1.78 : 1, Biography, Drama, History, USA]

DŽON ADAMS, EPIZODA 3: NE TLAČITE NAS VIŠE
John Adams, Episode 3: Don't Tread on Me (2008)

Dutch Doctor, Jean Brassard ... Admiral D'Estaing, Pip Carter ... Francis Dana, Jules Croiset ... Second Dutch Banker, Michael Hall D'Addario ... Young Charles Adams (as Michael D'Addario)]
- Part III: Don't Tread on Me (1777 A.D. - 1781 A.D.). In Episode 3, Adams travels to Europe with his young son John Quincy during the war seeking alliances with foreign nations, during which the ship transporting them battles a British frigate. It first shows Adams' embassy with Benjamin Franklin in the court of Louis XVI of France. The old French nobility, who are in the last decade before being consumed by the French Revolution, are portrayed as effete and decadent. They meet cheerfully with Franklin, seeing him as a romantic figure, little noting the democratic infection he brings with him. Adams, on the other hand, is a plain spoken and faithful man, who finds himself out of his depth surrounded by an entertainment- and sex-driven culture among the French elite. Adams finds himself at sharp odds with Benjamin Franklin, who has adapted himself to the French, seeking to obtain by seduction what Adams would gain through histrionics. Franklin sharply rebukes Adams for his lack of diplomatic acumen, describing it as a "direct insult followed by a petulant whine". Franklin soon has Adams removed from any position of diplomatic authority in Paris. His approach is ultimately successful and was to result in the conclusive Franco-American victory at Yorktown. Adams, chastened and dismayed but learning from his mistakes, then travels to the Dutch Republic to obtain monetary support for the Revolution. Although the Dutch agree with the American cause, they do not consider the new union a reliable and credit-worthy client. Adams ends his time in the Netherlands in a state of progressive illness, having sent his son away as a diplomatic secretary to the Russian Empire.

- Part IV: Reunion (1781 A.D. - 1789 A.D.). The fourth episode shows John Adams being notified of the end of the Revolutionary War and the defeat of the British. He is then sent to Paris to negotiate the Treaty of Paris in 1783. While overseas, he spends time with Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson and Abigail visits him. Franklin informs John Adams that he was appointed as the first American Ambassador to Great Britain and thus has to relocate to the British Court of St. James's. John Adams is poorly received by the British during this time—he is the representative for a recently hostile power, and represents in his person what many British at the time regarded as a disastrous end to its early Empire. He meets with his former sovereign, King George III, and while the meeting is not a disaster, he is excoriated in British newspapers. In 1789, he returns to Massachusetts for the first Presidential Election and he and Abigail are reunited with their children, now grown. George Washington is elected the first President of the United States and John Adams as the first Vice President. Initially, Adams is disappointed and wishes to reject the post of Vice President because he feels there is a disproportionate number of electoral votes in favor of George Washington (Adams number of votes pales in comparison to those garnered by Washington). In addition, John feels the position of Vice President is not a proper reflection of all the years of service he has dedicated to his nation. However, Abigail successfully influences him to accept the nomination.

- Part V: Unite or Die (1788 A.D. - 1797 A.D.). The fifth episode begins with John Adams presiding over the Senate and the debate over what to call the new President. It depicts Adams as frustrated in this role: His opinions are ignored and he has no actual power, except in the case of a tied vote. He's excluded from George Washington's inner circle of cabinet members, and his relationships with Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton are strained. Even Washington himself gently rebukes him for his efforts to "royalize" the office of the Presidency. A key event shown is the struggle to enact the Jay Treaty with Britain, which Adams himself must ratify before a deadlocked Senate (although historically his vote was not required). The episode concludes with his inauguration as the second president - and his subsequent arrival in a plundered executive mansion.

- Part VI: Unnecessary War (1798 A.D. - 1802 A.D.). The sixth episode covers Adams's term as president and the rift between the Hamilton-led Federalists and Jefferson-led Republicans. Adams's neutrality pleases neither side and often angers both. His shaky relationship with his vice president, Thomas Jefferson, is intensified after taking defensive actions against the French because of failed diplomatic attempts and the signing of the Alien and Sedition Acts. However, Adams also alienates himself from the anti-French Alexander Hamilton after taking all actions possible to prevent a war with France. Adams disowns his son Charles, who soon dies as an alcoholic vagrant. Late in his Presidency, Adams sees success with his campaign of preventing a war with France, but his success is clouded after losing the presidential election of 1800. After receiving so much bad publicity while in office, Adams lost the election against his Vice-President, Thomas Jefferson, and runner-up Aaron Burr (both from the same party). This election is now known as the Revolution of 1800. Adams leaves the Presidential Palace (now known as The White House), retiring to his personal life in Massachusetts, in March 1801.

- Part VII: Peacefield (1803 A.D. - 1826 A.D.). The final episode covers Adams's retirement years. His home life is full of pain and sorrow as his daughter, Nabby, dies of breast cancer and Abigail succumbs to typhoid fever. Adams does live to see the election of his son, John Quincy, as president, but is too ill to attend the inauguration. Adams and Jefferson are reconciled through correspondence in their last years, and both die mere hours apart on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence (July 4th); Jefferson was 83, Adams was 90.
