Excellent adaptions of Shakespeare's plays. My favorites were Taming of the Shrew and Much Ado About Nothing. All of the actors were fantastic, the script was clever, and it was pure quality. MacBeth was excellent as well, and I enjoyed a Midsummer Night's Dream, but not as much as the others. The episodes are definetly worth watching if you love Shakespeare.

I though the taming of the shrew and much ado about nothing were really funny! Macbeth was gripping and tragic, just like it should be. Don't bother watching midsummer night's dream, though. Not worth your time :-(

This has my favourite version of the taming of the shrew. I love Rufus Sewell and Shirley Henderson, they're so prefect for Petruchio and Kate.
