Quote of the day

In The Telegraph, Clive James ruminates on The Kennedys:
It wasn’t that lousy. It was just terrible, in the sense that terrible was all it was. Watching it wouldn’t necessarily give you any disease more dangerous than a weeping case of pink-eye. There are some who say that a full hour’s exposure to the script in its raw form would be enough to induce full-blown ebola, but by the time the thin banalities of the text had been plumped out with set decoration and acting, what unfolded on screen was merely a cause for despair, not for writhing on the carpet with a melted spine and your brains running out of your ears.
I guess he didn't like it then.
