On John Adams.

(The miniseries, not the man.)

I'm glad I spaced the discs out, because if Netflix dropped all three in my mailbox simultaneously I would be very much inclined to shoot up...err, watch them in one marathon 8-hour session. Between this, From the Earth to the Moon, and Band of Brothers, HBO has evidently found a way to freebase televisual crack cocaine.

Really, there's nothing about this series to complain about. The performances are electrifying, the visual design is seamless to my untrained eye, the pacing is breakneck.
