Apparently, there's a prestige TV adaptation of The Name of the Rose. It completely flew under my radar. It stars and is co-written by John Turturro, and at first I thought, "I don't buy John Turturro as William as all," and then I saw a picture of him and revised my thought to, "When did John Turturro get so old?!" Also, Ben Linus from Lost is in it? As Jorge of Burgos, I think? I'm not sure whether to check it out; not only does a book about the minutiae of Medieval manuscripts and dogmatic religious debates sound utterly unfilmable, but I'm not even sure if I can find a place to watch or stream it without signing up for yet another streaming service.

Thoughts, anyone?
