'The Kennedys: After Camelot' Review | Katie Holmes

'The Kennedys: After Camelot' Review | Hollywood Reporter: "Katie Holmes is fine, Matthew Perry is badly miscast, and this sequel to 'The Kennedys' is just entirely unnecessary.
Picked off the History Channel scrap heap, The Kennedys looked like a game-changer for Reelz back in 2011. It brought big (by Reelz standards) ratings and proved to be a surprising (because it wasn't very good) Emmy favorite, earning several technical trophies and a still-surprising victory for Barry Pepper's latex-enhanced performance as Bobby Kennedy.

The reality is that The Kennedys wasn't really a true game-changer for Reelz because the network couldn't work the miniseries into any sort of repeatable template. Six years later, Reelz is getting back into the game with The Kennedys: After Camelot, a sequel that few people demanded and nobody involved really knew how to make."
