Can’t see what all the fuss was about with the mini-series The Kennedy’s now relegated to the History Channel. I have seen a few episodes; it’s as good as The Tudors or such history-lite with a dash of naughty and nothing to frighten the pets. Don’t mind about the accent, and enjoy Tom Wilkinson’s wicked Joe Kennedy snr. Greg Kinnear is a great JFK and he has the accent down pat. Katie Holmes didn’t impress so far but wait until the shooting. A lot of the filming seems very low budget close-up, hand-held stuff but €25 million was spent in the making and it seems to have offended Kennedy supporters, so it got shunted off to a cable channel but it could have a lot of reruns elsewhere. It is, I suppose, closer to Henry Tudor than might be first thought.
