7/18/14: Jonathan Toews is sleepy (but not too sleepy to discuss his ambitious plans to Take A Selfie with an enraptured audience) [X]ETA: Fixed the text a little. Many, many thanks to pksubbans for figuring out what Tazer was saying in the first GIF! ♥
IM SO SAD THAT I COULDN’T BE THERE THIS YEAR!!!!! DX
What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:
- I am unable to do that
- I am too stressed out to do that
- I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
- My body will physically not allow me to do that
- I am on the verge of a panic attack
- I cannot do that
What people hear:
- I am unwilling to do that
- I am just shy
- I am overreacting
- I am lazy
- I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
- I need a push
- I don’t want to do that

This is so fucking true. And it’s the reason why I started crying at work this past week.
A big happy birthday to Benedict Cumberbatch, who inspires me to be a better actor and person.
A/N: In honor of Fargo gaining so many Emmy nominations after it’s freshman season, I wanted to do a review on it even though many people have probably already watched it. (*cough*everyoneexceptmyfriendsbutIstilllovethem *cough*) ;)
Actor: Martin Freeman
Character: Lester Nygaard
Plot Synopsis: Based on the Coen Brothers’ film of the same name, a mysterious drifter (Billy Bob Thornton) finds himself in a small town in Minnesota and meets a meek insurance salesman, Lester (Martin Freeman). After two men and one woman are all murdered on the same day, the town’s deputy (Allison Tolman) starts to think that perhaps these three murders are connected… And perhaps the innocent salesman is now being influenced by this dangerous stranger… More chaos happens; romance, blackmail, sex, absolute craziness and fun that you know only the Coen Brothers can create.
Martin’s Performance: 10/10
Overall Cast’s Performance: 10/10
Show’s Overall Writing: 10/10
Wowfactors (visual effects, cinematography, soundtrack, etc.): 7/10
Score: 45 x 2 = 90/100
Things to Know:
Violence: Yes, there is violence. There are three murders in the first episode for goodness sakes! Plus lots of shooting people because Billy Bob Thornton is not a nice man. There is nothing too graphic… but at the same time, it’s graphic. The show is on FX, of course it’s gonna look real ;)
Sex: There are only two sex scenes, one in the very first episode, and one towards the end of the season. The first scene isn’t much of anything… the second scene features Martin… and it is some hot, hard-core, doggie-style fucking. Seriously, my mouth fell wide open and my eyes widened beyond belief as I watched him fuck this woman into the mattress. But since it’s Martin, I burst out laughing afterwards because I never thought I would watch Martin Freeman have rough sex! xD
Language: This takes place in Minnesota, don’t you know? So, there isn’t much swearing… But… well, heck, the innocent people of Minnesota don’t stay very innocent as the series goes on. Must admit, it is rather funny and adorable to hear Martin say “heck” instead of his usual “fuck” ;)
Other: Not gonna lie, when I heard Martin was going to be on a show on FX, I was ecstatic because I love the shows that FX produces and (duh) I love Martin; and while I originally tuned in to see him have an adorable MN accent, I fell in love with this crazy show and the wonderful characters. Billy Bob Thornton is just amazing in his role as is the rest of the cast. Like I said above, the show can be quite violent at times, but not so that it’s unwatchable. The music in the show is actually quite heavy for a television show, meaning that it often reminded me of the Hobbit or Titanic; but is was also very powerful in some scenes which I liked.
Verdict: Everyone should go watch this show! This show is crazy and funny and thrilling and suspenseful and just a big bowl of wonderful! It’s already won a few awards and is nominated for quite a few Emmys. Martin and Billy Bob are just incredible in their respective roles and each episode is packed full of wonderful goodies.
Where To Find It: Watch the episodes here!

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A MINISERIES OR A MOVIE
Don’t you think Benedict is a better actor than Martin?
Don’t you think Martin is a better actor than Benedict?
Don’t you think ___(Sherlock/John/Smaug/Bilbo/etc) is more important than ___(Sherlock/John/Smaug/Bilbo/etc)?
Don’t you think one of them is in the shadow of the other?
Y’know why I think no? Because they are both amazing people and actors, and even when they are both in the same movie/show/etc, said movie/show/etc, wouldn’t be the same without the other.
