John Adams

I've only watched the first installment of the HBO original series on John Adams, but so far I am very impressed. HBO purportedly spent over $100 million dollars on the production. Thankfully, the series, so far, has been without the usual corniness of big-budget historical films. Instead, the script has been insightful and honest. I was somewhat apprehensive of Paul Giamatti's ability to play John Adams, but so far I think his performance has been remarkable. Laura Linney has also been outstanding in the role of Abigail Adams. If you get the chance, be sure to watch this, or else rent it when it comes out.
