The Patriot



Amazon has been producing some TV shows -- I hope Whit Stillman's show is still in the works. Although The Patriot thankfully doesn't seem to suffer from unrealistic diversity in casting, as an "offbeat" comedy disguised as a thriller (if that is what it really is) it doesn't seem to serve much purpose. Is this the sort of entertainment Uhmericans really need?
