The show is based on books by Elmore Leonard about a federal marshal in Kentucky. I can’t decide if I have a crush on Raylan Givens, or Timothy Oliphant who plays Raylan Givens. (These are the type of deep thoughts that keep me up at night.)
When I discovered the show, I had missed a few episodes and watched them in a marathon. After a while I started to believe that bribing people is a good way to get people to do what you want.
And if they don’t, you shoot them.
Sometimes I forget this might not apply to me because I’m not the head of an illegal organization and my family does not support itself by growing medicinal plants.
I’m married to a dentist. I don’t think anyone has ever made a show or written a book featuring dental mafia. I guess I could threaten root canals but the drills aren’t really portable so I would have to get the people to come to me and sit in a brightly colored chair with stuffed animals on the walls and TV’s playing Rio in the ceiling. I don’t think it would be the same.
I do look at my friend Sarah, who’s from Kentucky, a little different. Especially when she makes me brownies.
