The Bronx is Burning

Has anyone been watching the ESPN mini-series, "The Bronx is Burnng?" I haven't caught every episode, but I've seen most of them and they're pretty good. It's about the New York Yankees in the summer of 1977. If you remember, George Steinbrenner hired Billy Martin to manage the Yankees and Billy Martin brought in Reggie, Mr. October, Jackson. At the same time, the Son of Sam was terrorizing the city, randomly shooting young women and young couples he found out in the evening.

The series is just coming into the playoffs and the 1977 world series, so I'm looking forward to how they portray Reggie Jackson's amazing performance back then.
