They say this show had more influence on my generation than any other.
Season 1 Ive watched maybe 6 times in a depression in 2003, when I first truly felt I had lost contact with my bourgeoise sister, whom I loved more than myself.
because season 1 is so impeccable, I hate the later ones.

Coal Miners Daughter 1980
with Tommy Lee Jones
Growing up dirt poor, I mean real dirt poor in East Texas. We, my family caught this movie outside a drive in. My Daddy some how with a radio antenna caught reception, we allsat down to watch a classic. I was just 8, with broken shoes, and thought to myself, wow poor people can survive and make it.

This seems to be James Cameron's answer to 2001



I owned a special collectors edition set box thing then but really didnt get the movie. I haven't watched it since. But I have finally been watching 2001, and understand the context now.
2001 is the greatest movie ever made period. Im glad I didnt try to watch it when I was 16.
