Upcoming reviews for In The Glassy Margents

Back in 2014, I reviewed a series of teleplays produced by the BBC called The Hollow Crown. Starring Tom Hiddleston, the three-part miniseries based on William Shakespeare’s “Richard II,” “1 Henry IV,” “2 Henry IV,” and “Henry V” was distributed by NBC Universal in the U.S. and aired on PBS.

 Having earned several awards and a following via unexpected DVD and VOD sales, this winter PBS is airing the second installment, called The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses, featuring “1 Henry VI,” “2 Henry VI,” and “Richard III,” with Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role. I am happy to say that I will again be reviewing the series, but this time for my friends over at In The Glassy Margents over the next few weeks. I’ll post the links as they become available here.

The series is still streaming for free on PBS through early January, and via Amazon VOD ($5 for the season).

Pray pardon the dust

I am tinkering with some of the behind-the-scenes elements over the 2016 winter break. If a few links do not work, or some of the website pagination leads to mysterious white pages, not to worry. I am on it! I am happy to send you any posts or resources that you happen to be unable to find. Just contact me.

Happy Christmas,
