There is some good physical acting in this, despite the fact that they’re not moving around much. Dude playing Jefferson in particular has got the “I wrote a thing” half-eager, half-dreading slouch down cold. Also: these guys? These guys are total nerds. Which is, of course, a compliment.
I’m still stuck on tonight’s song — sometimes I know at first light; sometimes I have no idea at all — but this bit from (I guess) the John Adams miniseries is excellent.
