Harry Shearer as Nixon: Wow
3 May 2012 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

(Note: This is episode 3 of the "Playhouse Presents" series.) Shearer is known for his collection of audio and video artifacts. Here, he takes the infamous Nixon tapes from the Oval Office and presents them pretty much as they are, but acted out in what comes across as a very authentic simulation.

Anybody under the age of 40 might have trouble believing that this isn't all fiction. Horrifying enough, the entire script comes from those tapes. Granted, this might be a disappointment for viewers who are expecting a higher number of punch lines, but, well, reality doesn't always cooperate in that way.
