Hank is Back!

Ben Franklin was one of those guys who accomplished a LOT in life.

He needs to condition that hair.

He invented bifocals.

The geeks rejoice!

He was a character in one of my all-time favorite books.

Second only to Incognito Mosquito Makes History.

Puff Daddy wrote a song about him.

You'd have to pay me $100 to listen to this in 2015.

Pretty impressive stuff for a man who lived in the 1700s. And 300+ years later, he doesn’t stop! In 2015, good ol’ Ben Franklin has accomplished perhaps his greatest achievement: Hank from Breaking Bad is playing him in a miniseries on the History Channel called Sons of Liberty.

He looks like someone called his minerals rocks instead. How rude!

Again, pretty impressive stuff for a dead guy!

Sons of Liberty is a three-part miniseries that began last night on the History Channel, or as I like to call it, the Conspiracy Channel for Batshit Crazy People Who Know Nothing About History (see Nostradamus EffectAncient Aliens, and UFO Hunters as evidence, just to name a few). It continues tonight and tomorrow at 9p/8c and will probably be repeated several times throughout the week as well as available on Demand for those of us too lazy to set our DVRs. It follows History’s history (oh yeah, they’re just calling themselves History now) of ripping off titles from existing shows or puns (see Pawn Stars for evidence).

There will be no Charlie Hunnam, but he's one of those evil Brits anyway.

I’m excited because Sons of Liberty is like a reunion of all my favorite dead actors from TV (spoiler alert) like Hank and the super evil Rene from True Blood (Michael Raymond-James as Paul Revere), as well as childhood faves like Elliott from E.T. (Henry Thomas as Paul Revere) and the one and only STEVE GUTTENBERG as Jack Bonner (who the f— was Jack Bonner? He doesn’t even have his own wikipedia entry).

Real men have mullets.

Let’s be honest . . . I’m probably not going to watch Sons of Liberty. I’ll just watch clips of Breaking Bad instead.
