TV Junkie: Tuesday
If you didn't watch the late Sydney Pollack's "Recount" on HBO on Sunday (and repeated last night), you really should have. Salon.com did a huge write-up last week so it can only be reinforced that it was a high point in television this year. A great cast, well shot, created a nail biter of a show that perfectly illustrated (with humor) how badly the country was ripped off in 2000, and how low the Republican machine was willing to go in order to make the steal. Look for it to be repeated on HBO again later this week.
