Raise your hand if you've been
stuck watching the Hatfields & McCoys three night special this week? Well, I have... And let me just tell you that all I knew of the H and C's is that they are in a Willie Nelson Waylon Jennings song and well.. that's all I really ever cared to know about them.
Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs and
Newberry's train songs and Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain't nobody feelin' no pain
Now that I have that awesome song stuck in your head, I shall continue on.
I am not knocking the classic western but I have never been able to watch them. Maybe it's the onesies?? Maybe it's the horrific attempts at southern accents?? (those can ruin any movie for me) or just maybe the horrific acting and effects of the old days? But alas... I have to watch them because they are Kendol's favorite. What a fantastic little wifey I am. Bonus Points!! Cha-Ching.
Any who, back to the topic in discussion. This is a new version so I couldn't complain about all of the above. Except the onesies... The onesies are still being sported!
I can not take anyone serious in a onesie..
But seriously, this is the most confusing thing I've ever had to watch. I have no idea who is who, and I'm pretty sure Kendol is regretting making me watch it with him bc I am annoying the crap out of him with questions. They need to color coordinate so I know who is in which
team family.. perhaps color coordinated onesies?? Just an idea. You know, usually there are two different ethnicities fighting... or at least there is an indian on one team to clarify... Or they have uniforms...or symbols.. something! In this one, everyone looks alike. For real.
Suppposedly, they explained the back story on the feud between the families at the beginning, but I must have zoned that out because all I have seen is that a boy from one family and a girl from another fell in love and got pregnant. This brought the whole family feud back to surface.
And Kendol also roped me into this claiming there was a love story involved. The love story between those two last abouuuut 2 minutes. All I've got to say is that a lot better happen in the last hour. Instead of just killing off those two, the entire families are killing each other and those two love birds are about the only ones left in either family... Makes no sense.
And Kendol keeps talking about Kevin Costner...
I have yet to see him and we are five hours in.
When you say Kevin Costner, I need this:
Atleast, there is this guy:
