YMMV: Hatfields And Mc Coys
  • Creator's Favorite: The McCoy side ends with the Undignified Death of Randall and Frank Phillips. The Hatfield side ends with a cheerful scene of Devil Anse being baptized.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The score is beautifully done and really makes the mini-series that much better.
  • Narm: Randall's death.
    • YMMV definitely, as it was the end result of his Sanity Slippage, which was pretty frightening.
  • Tear Jerker: Many moments. Particularly standing out are Johnse's wordless but very emotional farewell at Roseanna's grave and Cottontop when his father dies, not to mention when Cottontop dies himself, as a scapegoat.
    • The murdering of the three McCoy brothers, particularly since the youngest of them was basically innocent and had already tried to defuse the feud partially by telling Roseanna his brothers had Johnse.
    • Also, say what you will about the despicable Jim Vance, but it still absolutely destroys you when he has to put his dog—who stayed by his side during battle—out of its misery.
