So, did anybody watch Kid Nation? That's the one where they put a bunch of kids into a ghost town with (supposedly) no adults around in an attempt to recreate Lord of the Flies, only without the violence and the sticks sharpened at both ends. It made quite a bit of press when the parents started poking around to see if they could file charges that the show broke child labor laws and endangered the children.
Well, it premiered tonight. One of the aspects of the show is that the children earn money, and then they get to spend it in the store. And in this very first episode, on the first day that the store was open, did anybody see what Jared (11yrs old) bought? "Henry V, Julius Caesar, or King Henry VIII.....I picked King Henry V, by William Shakespeare."
I'm not kidding. Some kids bought candy, one kid bought a bike. This kid bought Henry V.
I am going to assume that he bought it because he's a geeky kid (in the good way) and not because the producer shoved it in his hand. But I swear if anybody busts out the St. Crispin's Day speech in any later episodes, I quit!
