Fishing with John, previously on the blue, but with lots of dead links since I posted it in 2009.

There is an article about the series as a whole on the Criterion Contraption, but it is spoiler-laden for the other five episodes.

So what are the great fish movies?

I often think of that moment where Jim is thinking "Why am I here?"

Jim: "Maybe someone else should drive."
John: "There's nobody here but you and me."
Jim: "I'll drive."
John: "Do you want to drive?"
Jim: "No."

My feelings about this show are wrapped in a lot of people who introduced me to it. That's not a bad thing. It just represents a certain era in my life (and some people who aren't with us anymore).

Anyway, I love this show.

I read about this years ago, but somehow never saw it. Just watched the first ep. I think 20-something-year-old me would have loved it to pieces. Now I'm just mildly entertained.

You should at least watch the Willem Dafoe episode (episode 4); it's probably the strongest one.
