Review Roundup UPDATE: Critics Praise Epic Shakespeare Series 'The Hollow Crown,' Kicking Off September 20 (TRAILER)

Enthusiasts of the Bard, take note. "The Hollow Crown," the Sam Mendes-produced BBC series of four Shakespeare adaptations, "Richard II," "Henry IV Part 1" and "Part 2," and "Henry V," begins its stateside airings tonight (September 20) on PBS.
