I loved the movie Fargo. With that movie's last scene (it was close to the very end), Fargo became not only a place but a verb.
"I'm gonna Fargo you," meant my husband was getting dangerously close to getting put into the wood chipper.
The series has been out for several years, and I resisted... until recently. The first season was okay (but had spectacular music). I loved the second season (also phenomenal music--Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" was featured on one episode).
This coincides with me reading Barbara Robinette Moss' memoir Fierce. Her first one, Change Me Into Zeus's Daughter, is one of my favorite books. (It has the most compelling beginning. Seriously.)
Initially, I got Fierce simply because of the author. I doubted it would be as good. However, this memoir picks up during her adult years and it's wonderful.
So, do as I say, not as I do. Don't be so resistant of a sequel or a remake or a second novel/memoir that you miss out on something wonderful...
Some of them are great.
