Juliann Moore stars as Sarah Palin in "Game Change" which premieres Saturday at 8pm on HBO

This week there's a big focus on "Game Change," the dramatization of Sarah Palin's involvement in the 2008 election which premieres on HBO at 8pm on Saturday. The problem for Palin is that the movie is done very very well. Julianne Moore, while not getting the Palin accent down very well, really brings Palin to life. Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris round out the top of the bill with excellent performances. Watch Palin and the conservative right wing stagger from their latest round of gaffes to rally against what is a remarkable piece of storytelling (without actually seeing it - kind of like male conservative pundits weighing in on women's health).

Thankfully Saturday is bereft of other TV distractions, watch "Game Change."
