I used to bemoan the fact that Ryan Murphy has brought me some of the best hours of television I have ever watched, and also some of the worst. I have come to a point where I can simply appreciate the great hours (season 1 of Popular) and ignore and not try to love the worst. (season 2 of Popular). I will not have time to really sit down and watch The Normal Heart until the weekend. Good or bad, with some of my favorite actors, speaking the words of play write Larry Kramer, I am sure it will be powerful.
