So the new mini-series John Adams premiered tonight.

Part 1 premiered tonight, and so far, I'm impressed by Paul Giamatti, as always (I didn't see Lady In the Water).

Anybody else see this?

    But I have seen 1776 and no one can replace the John Adams in that. Played by Mr. Feeny from Boy Meets World and Kit from Knight Rider

    Giamatti's performance in The Illusionist would have made the film watchable even if it didn't also have Edward Norton being awesome.

    The Founding Fathers are awesome.

    John Adams is a giant dick, basically. And Ben Franklin is a pimp.

    And yes 1776 is the best historical film ever.

    From the part I saw Giamatti spent half the time trying not to laugh and trying to look plausible.
