Regarding the most recent episode of AMC's Turn

 Yet ANOTHER retelling of Yorktown where I am not present.

Oh suuuuure, Lafayette mentioned my name at one point, but why not ACTUALLY SHOW ME????

And I don't care if the show decided long ago to combine me and Tallmadge into the same person. We ARE NOT THE SAME PERSON, I don't know if you're aware. Just because we both hate goddman Lee with a passion don't mean we're the same damn person. Where was I during that surrender scene? Don't these damn writers know how important my historical counterpart was in all that? There's Lafayette, Alexander, Tallmadge... Where's John Laurens? Apparently invisible, that's where.

'Laurens is in South Carolina' indeed. At least I'm on the dang stage during that song, unlike this trainwreck of a show. They should rename the thing to Abraham Woodhull's Culper Variety Show Power Hour.

[There's an amused snort, but.] Per'aps they feared they could not do justice to your shining example, mon ami?

I mean, likely you would have been immensely frustrated with Woodhull's ....antics if you were there, so it might be for the better.

Alright, alright, mon ami. Maybe a drink? You cannot challenge Woodhull and his idiocy to a duel.

I am honestly surprised you weren't mentioned or shown earlier, what with Lee an' all. [BUT YES, TO BOOZE.]

[He'll offer a drink, pulled from somewhere magical. This isn't a game, he's welcome to.]

[There's a laugh, and he downs like half of his own drink too.] My secretary hasn't seen me quite yet, but I believe you.

Yeah, she thinks he's real cute, she says.

I mean, I ain't wearing a wig, either. [Because his hair is too glorious to be contained, thanks.] He is alright, I guess? [He makes a little French shrug, a sort of so-so kind of thing.]

[AAAAH WHAT NO BACKTRACK.]

What? Oh -- no, no, I --! He's much the same for me. More, per'aps, since my father was not -- well, he died before I was born.

[Yeah no, bro, that's just gross. And it shows in his face, but he's drinking all the same.]

Yeah, definitely not.
