    Criminally overlooked and under discussed; came for the mystery, stayed for Bernthal and Wigham. Two of the most committed and entertaining character actors working today. It was a pleasure to see them together chewing the scenery like absolute animals.

    How bad they are, those bad boys
    Who bask in the ever setting Miami sun
    And fire their glocks high up toward heaven
    And scream in flighty banter as their bullets fly straighter

    At the apex of their ascent
    The lips of angels stretch down 
    And kiss their bullets
    Before the fall

She loves attending it because there’s a big towing company in the town called Topel’s Towing and they always drive their massive tow rigs in the middle of the parade. Now, when I was going to school there, it was like a second…
