Regarding the Hollow Crown (which I've watched):

Tom Hiddleston is good (and good-looking) and Hal is a great character, but Richard's still my favourite.* And that was one awesome Richard II. I think from now on, Richard is always going to look like Ben Wishaw to me. Also, why in the world would you switch Bolingbroke's actors? Both of them were good (okay, Jeremy Irons is probably better, but I liked the other one, too) but it's kind of difficult to adjust to the sudden change.

*I realize this is stupid, because clearly Hal is one of the most deliciously ambiguous characters in all of Shakespeare, but I'm just fond of Richard, okay? I wouldn't like him for a king, yeah, but I'd like to watch him from a safe place and maybe give him a hug.
