I liked the first episode.
That Doug guy was trying super hard to be all charasmatic and try to make himself a superstar, but the story line is very compelling so far.

Typical TV for me last night.

*starts show*
*show is getting good*

wife: im so tired, can we finish it tomorrow night?
me: i'll stop it if you're seriously wanting to watch it?
wife: i am, i promise

*next 6 nights my wife falls asleep early and ends up watching it 6 months later while she's cleaning the house*

I read the article that The Daily Beast did when they broke this story a couple of years ago and it’s pretty wild. Would recommend it if you’re intrigued by the story and want to supplement the documentary.

Almost the same... but if yours cleans the house every 6 months, I’ll swap with you.

Yea at first I thought he was a try hard douche for the camera. After the end of the episode I think it's just his personality.

This is how it goes in my house too. One thing I'd add is when I watch it alone six months later, I get "YOU'RE WATCHING IT WITHOUT ME?????"

I was always looked forward to the McDonald's Monopoly game. I was baffled when they stopped. I remember thinking why does it always seem like someone who wins is from Florida. I'm really fascinated by the story, it's really well done and compelling.

So did I, I didn't realize it was the premiere and I would have to wait for the rest of the episodes. How many are they supposed to have?

After 15 years of marriage, I just answer "Yes," and go back to watching the show.

According to the podcast it's a 6 part docu series.

On this weeks podcast they have some audio from deleted scenes which are pretty cool.

Pretty sure they were setting up fake addresses in other states and finding people in other states to claim prizes to not draw suspicion so the winner's address wouldn't have been FL so I don't see how you would have thought that????
