'Gunpowder' not that big of a blast

"Gunpowder," the HBO miniseries originally produced for BBC One, is a history lesson presented in the tone of "Game of Thrones." It looks at the events leading up to the 1605 Gunpowder Plot in London that has become the British national holiday Guy Fawkes Day, despite the assassination attempt being a failure. The production has the attention to detail that has made projects from "The Tudors" to "The Vikings" so appealing. And, what has caused the most stir is no punches are pulled when it comes to showing the viciousness of this unholy war.
