In this episode of Anomay Supplemental, KC and Sue touch on sci-fi adaptations of Shakespeare's works, references to The Bard in sci-fi shows, and the many classically trained Shakespearean actors who have done a great deal of work in the genre.  We also discuss why it is that Shakespeare's works are still studied and performed 400 years after his death, what makes them ripe for sci-fi adaptations, which of his works are our favorites, and what constitutes good story-telling regardless of genre and setting.

SPOILER ALERT:  This episode may contain spoilers for Star Trek TOS and TNG, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Farscape, Forbidden Planet, Battlestar Galactica and - of course - Shakespeare's plays.  (There may be some others, too...)
