The Hollow Crown: Shakespeare's History Plays

Son Christopher informs me that there are still things worth watching on television, if one has a television set. He writes: "Proof that there is still stuff worth watching on television ... this is actually very good -- with Patrick Stewart, Jeremy Irons, and that guy that played 'Loki' in the movie Thor." He is referring, of course to The Hollow Crown, a lavish new series of filmed adaptations of four of Shakespeare’s most gripping history plays; Richard II, Henry IV, Part 1, Henry IV, Part 2 and Henry V on THIRTEEN’s GREAT PERFORMANCES beginning Friday, September 20 at 9 p.m. (Check local listings.)
