King Lear for the Videogame Generation

Here’s something you don’t see every day.  The G4 cable network, which is essentially dedicated to videogames, has a show called “Attack of the Show”.  I’m not fully sure why this happened, but this week they did a skit where the two hosts, Kevin and Jessica, performed a scene from King Lear. The description says that “an unfortunate broadcast glitch showed a random lecture on Shakespeare’s King Lear instead of the normal opening.” I think I would have liked to see the random lecture. 😉

  1. I think I would have liked to see the random lecture. 😉

    Me too.
    What is it with the idea that whenever somebody "does" Shakespeare they think that attempting an obviously phony English accent will get them through it any better?
