Will Shakespeare Must Be Rolling Over in His Grave...
Well, with all due respect to the brilliant actors associated with this
production I must heartily disagree with the previous good review,
evidently penned by a rabid Tim Curry fan, of this disenchanting
mini-series. I felt Ian McShane, in particular, was totally wasted in
his role -as Marlowe- and although Tim Curry did the best that could be
done, with the sub par material, he was altogether forgettable in the
lead. The ambling, misguided, largely fictional account of William
Shakespeare's life was aided somewhat by adequate production values,
but was not worthy of being aired on prime-time TV, in the US. In fact
the ABC network considered showing it, at one point, but was rightfully
disappointed with its clumsy, substandard contents. View it if you
must, Tim Curry aficionados, but everyone else, I just thought you
should be warned...
