Weirdly enough, just the other day I was bemoaning the fact that there aren't really any fantastically trashy treatments of major figures in US history. The Tudors, the Borgias, even Kublai Khan have all had their turn, but the US seems to be locked out of the market. The Kennedys could have been an in, but it was a bit of a damp squib. Well, coming from the History Channel this very month, here's Sons of Liberty. Starring Ben Barnes as Sam Adams, Henry Thomas as John Adams, Dean Norris as Benjamin Franklin, Rafe Spall as John Hancock, and so on. Trailers below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfMW2icxVlo --it ain't John Adams (which I'm watching now and enjoying) by a long shot. But it's so darn rock n' roll. Let's say it's Spartacus to the other series' Rome.
