TNT is taking Cole Porter’s advice and having everyone brush up on their Shakespeare. First with Will or what happened before the plays brought him fame mixed with an undercurrent of anti-Catholic soap opera and Elizabethan intrigue.
Then bring on Still Star-crossed for all those who want to know what happened after Romeo & Juliet bit the dust.
Things didn’t come to a peaceful aftermath and all the Capulets and Montague’s are decidedly still at it, complete with swords, swiving and murderous intrigue galore.
So pull out your dog-eared high school copy (or just warm up Google). You are going to need it to look up all the heady references flying around courtesy of the series writers busily stealing from the very best.
