Tonight I was poking around a bit on Netflix and Amazon Prime for a new series to keep my occupied on my elliptical. This caught my eye. Thanks for the recommendation.

I've been been binge-watching this for a couple days. I still have a few episodes left. If you have any doubts that mannerisms and dialect used in Fargo were real, this will dispel them.

Scrapbooking. :)

I've watched it three times. It just doesn't seem to get old for me!
Oh, yeah! That's a lot funnier. I'm sure I heard it right when it aired. I was just watching it on my phone right now and for some reason I couldn't tell. Check out The Big Short when you get a chance. Steve Carell is really good in it.

I just looked it up. Carrell, Gosling, and Pitt? That sounds like a great mix! The cast alone is reason enough to watch, for me. Thank you for the heads-up.

I finished it this morning. Great documentary on how the police coerced confessions out of a sixteen-year-old mentally sluggish kid, who couldn't understand the implications of doing so and didn't have a lawyer present. Additionally, they framed his uncle.

I hope both are eventually able to get new trials.

There's a highly-rated podcast called Serial that my brother recommended to me. It's actually credited as being the world's most popular podcast. I'm a third of the way through episode 2 and hooked. I'm going to listen to a few more today. I recommend it to anyone who liked Making a Murderer. @Rafagon, check it out and let me know what you think.
