I watched the last episode of Angels in America last night, this show was so amazing! I would love to see the play at the theatre. I think it was one of the greatest TV shows that I’ve ever seen and that’s a lot.
The story was great, the writing was fantastic along with the execution and I simply adored all of the characters. Especially Justin Kirk as Prior! <3 And Ben Shenkman as Louis! I loved them together <3
Obviously Al Pacino was great in it, and so was Meryl Steep who I’ve weirdly now seen in two things this week, this and The River Wild. That must be a first lol. Emma Thompson as the Angel as well.
All the actors were great, Patrick Wilson as Joe and Jeffrey Wright who always made me smile as Belize. Mary-Louise Parker was pretty funny as Harper too.
I am so glad that Sky Atlantic showed this so I got to see it and it looked amazing in HD, I’m kinda sad though that I’ve seen it all now :(
But if you haven’t seen it I suggest you do because you will love it. I did. So did my parents.
It had sweet moments and sad moments, it had funny moments and interesting moments. It really had it all, what more could you want from a show.
I loved how they made Heaven look, it wasn’t how people would conventionally perceive it and I liked how before he got there the picture changed to black and white when he walked the ladder up there except Prior’s red robe! <3
I’m gonna miss this, might have to buy it on dvd to watch it again!
I hate America, Louis. I hate this country. It’s just big ideas, and stories, and people dying, and people like you. The white cracker who wrote the national anthem knew what he was doing. He set the word “free” to a note so high nobody can reach it. That was deliberate. Nothing on earth sounds less like freedom to me. You come with me to room 1013 over at the hospital, and I’ll show you America. Terminal, crazy, and mean. I live in America, Louis, that’s hard enough, I don’t have to love it. You do that. Everybody’s got to love something.
Louis: I always get so closety at these family things. Prior: Butch. You get butch. “Oh hey, cousin Doris, you don’t remember me, I’m Lou, Rachel’s boy.” Lou, never Louis, otherwise they’ll hear the sibilant s. Louis: I do not have a - Prior: And by the way dear, cousin Doris is a dyke. Louis: No. Really? Prior: You don’t notice anything. If I hadn’t spent the last four years fellating you, I’d swear you were straight.
