I really like the question posted by the Drewmwidth Fannish Friday 5 today!

And to quote: Name the five best uses of Shakespeare’s work (faithful adaptations, plots inspired by his work, references to one of his plays/sonnets). (thanks to slytherin_gypsy)

Now it is: a) really warm here at work b) I was up all night coughing and hacking so I'm really tried. And having a hard time putting words together (not a good start when thinking about Shakespeare, yo). So I'm going to be lazy and list one, and it might not be the best use of Shakespeare’s work, but it is right up there with my favorites.

The "Atomic Shakespeare" (and my lord what a cool name that is!) episode of Moonlighting. As per the summary on IMDB A student starts to watch Moonlighting, then his mother appears and reminds he has to read Taming of the Shrew for school. As he starts to read, the characters from Moonlighting enact the play.

More, More, More! )

I am insane. I am struggling with this 30 day book meme, and now looking at doing a 30 day Shakespeare meme after this. This is because The Bard has eaten my brain of late. I'm reading Shakespeare biographies, fictionalized accounts of his life, etc. See also: Christopher Marlowe :P

I need a Bard intervention ....
