After reading LB's post about the John Adams miniseries on HBO, I decided to watch it. Man, am I glad I did!
What a great series, so far. I've only seen through the 3rd episode, but it has been consistently good, if not great. What a wonderful change of pace to see ideas and reason presented in a clearminded, heroic light on the screen. And the story of the Founders' fight against tyrrany is absolutely thrilling.
If you have HBO, I strongly recommend you watch this. If not, hopefully it will be out on DVD for christmas.
Incidentally, this is how I spent my Earth Hour. I thought it was fitting.
