John Adams-HBO


On the second episode I had chills down my spine and got choked up several times. I liked the cuts between Adams family taking a rudimentary vaccine for pox relating to the struggle for independence and sovereignty.

It is chilling to see America occupied violently by force from a selfish, money grabbing warmongering country ruled by a series of elite family dynasties.

It reminds me that Shakespeare's resonance is partly attributed to the fact that he, like us, was witness to dynasty corruption and political terrorism.
