Well, I hope I'm not breaking any regulations here, seeing as how this is the internet and with all the regulations and what not, I'm not going to be talking about the movie, which was pretty darn good, especially the scene where Marge meets Mike in the restaurant and he says "You were such a super lady... and I'm, I'm so lonely". And got to pay respects to the good old wood chipper scene too. Always wondered why no one ever made a poster of Gaear Grimsrud shoving Carl's leg into the chipper. Would have put it right up there on the wall in my bedroom next to my poster of Ruth Popper. I'm going to be talking about the TV show Fargo. I love this show so, so much. They say at the beginning of the show that it's a true story, but I'm pretty darn sure that they must be taking some liberties here and there, wouldn't you think? My favorite part of the show is the Butcher of Luverne (no mention of Bemidji here), Ed Blumquist, but here at home we just call him Todd seeing as how he played our beloved Todd on Breaking Bad. Basically the story is about a feud between the Gerhardts and the Kansas City mob over turf and one day Todd's wife Peggy is driving home and runs into one of the Gerhardt boys just after he turns 4 people in the diner into spaghetti sauce. She drives home with the Gerhardt boy's body sticking out of the windshield. Well Todd is a butcher, you know, so you can just guess what he did to the Gerhardt boy. There's lots of covering up and all, but Sheriff Solverson is on to them as things begin to heat up in Luverne. So the Sheriff pays Todd and Peggy a visit to question them about the missing Gerhardt boy, you know, and it's even easy for us to tell they're hiding something. But he's not there to get Todd and Peggy in trouble over this as he's trying to warn them that the Gerhardts are coming after them as their adopted Indian boy has grown up to be quite the tracker and that if they tell the Sheriff the truth he can protect them, but that would ruin everything for Peggy who has taken $500 from Todd's bank account to pay for her Be the Best You Can Be self improvement course that was supposed to be used in the down payment for the butcher shop as Todd's boss is retiring to Florida. Hoo boy. So the Sheriff is giving them the once over and tells them a little story about how they got "the look". Same look he saw many times in Viet Nam after a guy steps on a land mine and gets his legs blown clear off. Of course the poor fellow doesn't know it yet because it just happened and everyone gathers around and tells him he's going to be just fine, but he has that look in his eyes, the look that says you're already dead but don't know it yet. And that's what he says to Peggy and Todd. "You're already dead but don't know it yet". What they don't know is that their biggest problem is Dodd Gerhardt who is still looking for his missing brother. He's the meanest of the Gerhardts. One day he walks up to his daughter Molly Gerhardt and punches her in the head for no reason and when she asks him what he did that for he says that now that she's 18 there will be no more slapping. Oh, and bodies! 3 here, 4 there 9 more in the next town. Hoo boy. The only thing I don't like is the way the screen gets black for a long time between scenes near the end of show making you think the show's over, but it's not. And the long time you think Todd is dead, but he's not. Woo, that would a been a bad thing for the show, don't you think? And there's one more thing, but it won't apply to all of you. Let's say that Luverne is the Equator. If you live at the Equator or north of the Equator, it probably won't. But if you live well South of the Equator or were at least raised well South of the Equator, to the far East or West you will most likely have a problem or two getting past the thick Minnesotan accents. I have toned mine down here for that very reason. What we do here is turn up the volume and, if necessary, hit the rewind button on the remote until we get it right. Well, I hope you get the idea that this is my favorite show on TV right now. Nothing more I'm going to say except I love this show so, so much.
