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.
