The Plot Against America

The new limited series on HBO The Plot Against America is based on the Philip Roth novel. Taking place in 1940 and dealing with Anti-Semitism is ripe for the current environment. The show can’t be faulted for the casting but beyond showing the political implications of Charles Lindberg mouthing falsehoods about Jews, there is little new explored based on the initial episode. The slow burn and routine dialogue leaves little to appreciate except for the impeccable recreation of the period.
