The "Texas Rising" mini-series is actually pretty good. The History Channel appears to be trying to recapture the ratings magic it found with "The Hatfields and McCoys" mini-series of a couple years ago. Great casting again. Actor Bill Paxton plays Sam Houston. Kris Kristofferson has a bit role. What stunned me was trying to identify actor Ray Liotta, of Goodfellas fame, in the show. I had no idea he appeared until the credits rolled at the end of the first episode. After doing some online research, I found his Texas Rising character in costume. Quite a transformation for the usually dapper Liotta.

Texas has an amazing history and the History Channel tells it well.

Next episode is tonight 9pm EST. Spotting Ray Liotta in character was tougher than playing Where's Waldo.

In one scene I swear I saw a Load1 truck driving by. Probably on its way back from Laredo.........empty!
