“The Kennedys”: Are You Watching?

kennedysMV5BMjgzMzcxMTY5N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzM2MTM4NA@@._V1._SY317_“The Kennedys,” the series that is making millions of people aware of the Reelz network, is hardly the right-wing take on the dynasty that some people expected. For the elderly, the show provides an opportunity to wax nostalgic over America at the apex of empire. For younger folks, “The Kennedys” is an opportunity to watch Mrs. Tom Cruise attempt to act classy. (With difficulty.) For me, the chief delight of the show is Tom Wilkinson as crusty, duplicitous old Joe Kennedy; for others, it’s Barry Pepper as Bobby.
