Okay, it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of history, and not just physically. This being so, feel free to take my advice with a grain of salt, but the HBO series John Adams, is brilliant. Though dramatized, it is American history presented in a way I’ve rarely seen. The people who started this grand experiment are made flesh and bone. They aren’t the perfect marble gods we are taught about, or more rightly not taught about, in school.
