Oh my goodness!
What an awesome new show!
For cereal now. If you haven’t heard anything about this show, get on it, I implore you. Eddie Izzard, a comic who should be canonized as far as I’m concerned, plays the head of a family of “Travelers.” Travelers are basically American Gypsies. They travel around pulling small cons here and there and they have this cool little camp where they meet up sometimes out in the Mississippi forest.
Minnie Driver plays Seabiscuit. Ha, kidding. Nay, the equine British beauty plays his wife, Dahlia, who’s apparently just out of jail, recovering from a Heroin addiction and some sort of Gypsy royalty. They luck into a dead family’s life and move into their McMansion in Louisiana.
I won’t spoil the plot line, but the writing is amazing, the performances are amazing. I laughed I cried I sneezed and then when it was over I napped.
Yes, leave your office, go home and watch it.
