THE NINE STAGES OF WATCHING FARGO WITH MY PARENTS

Fortunately, I've already watched it, but alas, it's a cycle.
  1. 1.
    Pausing and starting an episode over to Shazam the opening song
    Still not Van Morrison. Actually, it's literally never Van Morrison. No, I promise, it's not Van Morrison.
  2. 2.
    Identifying the cars being driven
    And somehow, one of the two of them owned said car, even though I swear neither of them were ever wealthy growing up.
  3. 3.
    Explaining the lesbian subtext between Constance and Peggy
    Because Peggy is a naughty girl, dontchaknow?
  4. 4.
    Pausing an episode because dad wants a snack
    OK WENDELL.
  5. 5.
    Googling actors to see what they were in
    Jean Smart- Designing Women, Ted Danson- Cheers, Kirstin Dunst- Bring it On, Patrick Wilson- Angels in America, Jesse Plemmons- Friday Night Lights, and if you're super curious, yes, that IS the guy from Everybody Loves Raymond
  6. 6.
    Correcting my parents for using the word Indian instead of Native American
    But honestly, his name is Hanzee, so I don't know why we're not just using that.
  7. 7.
    Reviewing the ten minutes one of them falls asleep each episode
    It's usually something to do with Kansas City. I get it. The Kitchen Brothers don't even talk.
  8. 8.
    Explaining "self-actualization"
    I don't know what it is either. It's not from Buzzfeed. I think it comes from the 70s.
  9. 9.
    Pausing and rewinding the end of an episode to Shazam the final song.
    No one knows how to say Bon Iver. It's fine.
