The best damn thing since All the President’s Men

If you do one thing … watch one thing … think about one thing … this Memorial Day weekend … make it worth your while:  watch  State of Play — the BBC miniseries.  It’s the smartest thing you’ll see or hear or think about it in, oh, probably, the last several years, at least.  With no Redford or Hoffman in sight (and certainly no Affleck) — this program gives All the President’s Men a serious run for its money.  And honestly, I think it comes out on top.

I’m serious — if you have even the slightest interest in print journalism — watch State of Play — the BBC miniseries.

You can rent it at Video Renaissance on Bee Ridge in Sarasota; it may be at the library or on Netflix or some such place.  Find it.  Rent it.  Watch it.

Then go out and buy a newspaper.

    I don’t get it.. No massive explosions with bloody, twisted human torsos flying in several directions while the hero uses his body to protect the scantily clad super-hot babe from harm while also saving the world.. And then they kiss.. Fade to black..

    “State of Play”, sounds like a 6 hour yawner..
