You may or may not be familiar with a Canadian TV show called Slings and Arrows, a show about a theatre company! A Shakespeare Festival at that. Wow! Sounds great already, right?
Well I just found the first season and started watching. Being the Shakespeare nerd that I am, you might find it amazing that I haven’t watched it yet. Even I’m amazed at myself! Especially after watching the first episode, I’m hooked. Why didn’t I ever pick this up before? S&A fans, you are welcome to chide me for my ignorance of this wonderful show. It’s so refreshing to see a show that I can really relate to. I can’t REALLY identify with the characters on Lost, Heroes, or House, even if they are great shows. But when I see people doing theatre, Shakespeare even, I’m immediately sucked in.
Get on NetFlix and find this series! I’ll be watching a lot of it over the next little while, so you might hear back from me on this. Or if you’re watching it too, feel free to comment or email me and we can discuss the show!
