Next New Favorite Indulgence...



I don't have much time to watch TV anymore, even though previous posts might suggest otherwise, so I have been careful to ensure that my time is spent watching worthwhile shows. John Adams, which was a HBO 7 part mini-series film is my new favorite.

It's based on the book I'm sure you've all seen by David McCullough. It's definitely worth renting and a wonderful glimpse into the life of and struggles of our nations early years. It is a little long, but I have to say that I was blown away and hardly noticed the time. I can't ever recall a production so historically accurate and so thorough and yet so engrossing and personally moving. The music is incredible, the costuming unbelievable and the story is impeccable.

Highly recommended.

Jake.
I am interested in checking out the John Adams series. I enjoyed the things I have read about him and Abigail.
In addition, I to am a flight of the concord fan.

Funny, when I first saw the pictures, I thought you were reading instead of watching tv. Should have known better, I guess. :)

Cracks me up that you're an Arrested Development fan -- love that show!

Hope things are well with you.
