What shocks me is that AVClub cut coverage of popular shows that got a few dozen comments (nothing gets hundreds like the pre Kinja days) yet still reviews this garbage, that’s a solid 5 years past being relevant or interesting, that the reviewer constantly says is terrible, and that gets under 40 comments.

My mother’s gradually disappearing into dementia. As good as this film treatment might be, I’m not looking for opportunities to re-live the experience in my leisure time.

This sounds amazing, and I will never watch it because I can’t deal with watching people lose their minds.

Knowing that Wiest improvised “bow down, bitch” makes me so happy.

Haven’t had such an emotional reaction to a film as this one. It lacks dramatic shape as you said, but I was really touched by the main “storyline” of the film, between Alice and Roberta. Don’t remember the last time a film dealt with the years lost of a friendship and how heartbreaking that can be.

The courtroom scene was entertaining TV, and was meant to illustrate the judge’s character, but unless courtrooms have different standards in New Orleans, was kind of bonkers.

I’m not sure one sister is any less racist. More like she just sees Satchel as a way to stick it to her sister, and her particular hate of her sister trumps her more general hate of other races.

I LOVED this episode - and I think our reviewer really needs to go back and watch A Serious Man. As soon as I made the Kansas - Wizard of Oz connection, I knew they were going to bring in the tornado. I’m so glad they also brought in the religious/philosophical aspect too.

I won’t get into the “one good movie” thing again this week :P But...
Fraser and Caitlin realizing they are the ones for each other is a lot of BS.”  Was I totally reading that scene wrong?  I don’t think that’s what they realized at all (at least not the ones for each other romantically).

Hey, great minds think alike. Rabbi Milligan increasingly reminds me of Tom Reagan and Schwartzman as a (not quite as good) Leo O’Bannon.

There’s just something empty about the setting for one thing. It’s generic 50s, generic midwest/rust belt (they say it’s Kansas City but it sure doesn’t feel like Kansas City), quirky but ultimately one-note stereotypical mobsters.

I don’t know about you, but I like this Fargo series and can’t wait for the movie to come out! #Six Seasons and a Movie

I mean, this is pretty much the greatest record of the 80s. Or at least on the very short shortlist.

Probably my most-desired “deluxe edition” of any album ever. I am so psyched to dive into this set. One of the few bright spots in an otherwise dire 2020.
