Shakespeare vs Sorkin

Me? Well, I’m slowly working my way through Season 3 of the West Wing. Such outstanding writing, acting and cinematography. Hands down, Sorkin’s best show to date. And so soothingly therapeutic right now.

Someone asked me recently if I’m into the House of Cards show. Not that Kevin Spacey isn’t amazing – heck, I’ve been a fan of his work since around Se7en. And I just recently re-watched American Beauty where Kev costarred with the equally talented Annette Bening. But right now I just can’t absorb both a political TV drama AND a real-time, real-life King Lear. Sorry, Shakespeare.
