I will try not to squeal like a little girl

But the Royal Shakespeare Company is making a DVD of David Tennant’s Hamlet!  YES THEY ARE.  A DVD.

And, okay, yes, Hamlet is not historically my most favorite one of Shakespeare’s plays.  I have been known to say that Hamlet needs to for God’s sake DO SOMETHING ANYTHING EVER; I have been known to quote Oscar Wilde about critics of Hamlet; I have been known to tell the story of how my senior English class drove any possible liking I might ever have had for that play out of me by spending days and days and teacher-sanctioned days discussing whether Hamlet was contemplating suicide.  However, if anyone could make me like Hamlet it is David Tennant, I really do think.  So we’ll see how it goes.
