THE ADVENTURES OF HORATIO HORNBLOWER & FIBBER MCGEE AND MOLLY
Here’s another bonus quarantine-themed episode for you to help pass the time. We begin with “The Adventures of Horatio Hornblower.” Horatio Hornblower started life in a series of adventure novels written by C. S. Forester from the 1930s to the 1960s. Hornblower is a British officer in the Royal Navy during the Age of Sail, the Napoleonic Wars of the 1800s. That’s the same time period as Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin or “Master and Commander” series. If you like one, you’ll like the other. Then, on “Fibber McGee and Molly,” all the usual gang has been quarantined at the McGee residence for a week due to measles. Let’s check in and see if everyone is still on their best behavior.
