We started watching John Adams via HBO On Demand last night and caught the first two episodes.

Wow.

I know a bunch about the Founding Fathers, but this really brings it home. It’s a remarkably written, acted, and directed series with everyone pretty much perfect in their roles. Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney are outstanding, and Tom Wilkinson (I knew I knew who that was!) as Ben Franklin is exceptional.

Watch this if you aren’t. I think its timing is perfect and it’s something that schools will hopefully embrace. I see on the HBO site that there are teaching guides to go along with it. Bravo!
