The long-awaited television adaptation of Tony Kushner's play Angels in America is airing this week on HBO in the States. The critics are going gaga over it, calling it one of the greatest television films ever and a major cultural event.

For those of you unfamiliar with the play, it's about AIDS, homosexuality, politics and hypocrisy in Reagan's America (the play is a favourite with lefties).

Does anyone here have any idea when it's airing in Canada? Surely either Bravo! or Showcase has decided to pick it up. Any inside info? I'm itching to see it!

In that vein, I'd like to mention The Living End, and this particular screenshot from the movie:

I didn't even know who Tony Kushner was until I read an interview with him recently that was all about his politics and his take on world events. He's brilliant - I'd love to see any of his work.
