Falstaff is great, and there are a few classic characters in the Henrys, but they do tend to drag more than the Richards.

My friend was in Henry IV Part 2 once. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Richard II is fantastic, and Richard III is fucking great since you get to revel in the dark side for a while.

I highly recommend to those who haven't seen them both Olivier's FANTASTIC Richard III, which I think very well could be his best Shakespeare adaptation, and Al Pacino's really great documentary Looking For Richard-- while the acting is a bit shaky, it's insanely fascinating.
