We’re recapping the 2008 miniseries John Adams each week because the 18th-century costumes and American history are just that good! Catch up with previous episodes here.
First of all, let me just say: FINALLY, SOME ACTUAL COSTUME CONTENT. Episode 3 starts off with John Adams being summoned to France, much to the vast irritation of Abigail who is like, “WTF, things finally just settled down around here.” Since the Adamses are better off financially, Abigail’s wardrobe is getting more interesting, but the bulk of the interesting costumes are in the French court. And with that … Onward to the costume content!
What do you think of episode 3 of John Adams?
