I don’t know man, the last two presidents were, Donald Trump, champion of the far right, and Joe Biden, certainly more left than Trump but definitely not the champion of the far left, so it seems that the “political left” is not in fact the most powerful players in American culture right now. Also the right has their own cancel culture in the form of canceling anyone who criticizes Donald Trump.
Honestly felt pretty rushed for the season finale. Not even sure why Ethelreda is even in it, she turns out to be a successful something or other I guess based on that flash-forward (?) but also she was cut out of most of the season. Still not sure what to make of Mr. Snowman/The Roach. I thought the mid credits scene with Mike would be tedious if you told me at the beginning of the season what it would be but honestly it was very haunting seeing him reminisce to his time as Satchel and reload his gun the way Rabbi did. Kid lost both father figures back to back and seeing your actual dad die like that would probably fuck anyone up, and that’s not including all the family history.Overall maybe my least favorite season, the themes are all there and having the white (in modern terms at least) NY mafia just steamroll Canon really tied that particular thread together but there’s just too many disparate pieces and players and the season spent too long on people I frankly never cared about and dropped a lot of the characters I did care about for long stretches of time. Good season of television but just an ok season of Fargo.
So I live in a small town with maybe 500 people tops in it and at least 50% of them have caught Covid by now and seemingly still don’t think it’s a big fucking deal. Literally all of my cousins and most of my aunts/uncles caught it and they still want to have big get together like Thanksgiving. Fortunately I’ve managed to convince my Grandma to skip holidays and get togethers this year, probably solely by dirth of me getting it first despite all the precautions, and my parents aren’t to keen on those either but it’s been a mind numbing experience all around. They’re all hardcore Trumpers as well so nothing I’ve done to try and convince them has had any effect. I’ve basically given up on them to focus exclusively on my most at risk family like aforementioned grandma and some great aunts and the parentals who have been considerably more cautious about all of this.
