re: About to start watching Fargo. Worth it? - Tigris on 6/27/17 at 9:14 am
Different story and different time period. Though one character did make if from season 1 into season 3. And there is a little spill over from season 2 into season 1 (which happened decades later). And there are sly nods between the seasons and all of the Coen's movies. But each season is a diff...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

My ticket to come back from Trinidad said TSA pre. And they have no such thing there and it was of no benefit. When we hit Miami we had to go through US security so my TSA pre on the next flight did help with that....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Your favorite Cormac McCarthy? - Tigris on 6/26/17 at 4:54 pm
I really think his first three are somewhat overlooked and underrated (The Orchard Keeper, Child of God, and Suttree). Those 3 and No Country are probably my favorites, partly because they are not difficult reads. Blood Meridian may be his masterpiece but it is tough work to read it and I don't fi...

re: Beaches 3-4 hour max from Savannah Ga - Tigris on 6/26/17 at 4:18 pm
Take the ferry over to Cumberland Island, awesome place. Unless you are just wanting to sit on a beach. Cumberland Island is more for exploring though it has a great beach too. You'll have to look up the ferry times if you do it. There are no services so you'll have to take all your food and dri...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How many of these movies haven't you seen? (Ranker: Top 100) - Tigris on 6/26/17 at 3:59 pm
I got to the upper 60's and had seen them all when the list crashed. The list is based on an internet poll so it's really a "100 most popular movies" list rather than a best movies list. It's a mediocre list but far less pretentious that the list the NY Times put out, and maybe a little better too...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Fargo Season 3 Thread - Tigris on 6/26/17 at 1:18 pm
On further reflection I do think that either Nikki or someone with a higher power stopped the car. Probably Nikki since she knew where to be and was prepared. And after Nikki was shot there wasn't much point in his car being stopped. One comment I read elsewhere was interesting - when Nikki tel...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]I feel like Sy has been let out of a lot of the analysis. What's your take? Are we to possibly think that he actually became at least indifferent to the scheme once it was revealed that he was massively personally benefiting?
