    I binge watched the first season, trying to get my wife interested before jumping into the next season.

    I like mustard on my biscuits.

    My wife watched both seasons and really liked it. I like Billy Bob Thornton.

    Slingblade was completely filmed where I live now and is one of my favorite movies. Not so much for Billy Bob but Dwight Yoakam

    My favorite scene in the entire movie.

    Quite good IMO.
    There are now 3 seasons and TBO it is very well done.
    Eric McCormack (Will from the sitcom Will & Grace) stars in it and is also Producer.
    It was a bit slow-paced in a few episodes but if you are a science fiction fan it is totally worth watching.

    A friend might get a cheap atv that messed up the crank, just figured it wouldnt be too difficult to rebuild. Of course setting the timing will be critical but will see if he gets it or not.

    Yes, you can expect snow squalls here at any time of year at elevations above 5000'.
