Trivia

The second TV show in the last four years in which Kirsten Dunst stars as a women who becomes involved with a sinister multilevel marketing scam / pyramid scheme. In the second season of Fargo, Dunst played a main character who was very eager to participate in a Lifespring seminar. Lifespring was a real organization founded in the mid-1970s as an offshoot of the so-called "human potential" movement that began in the late 1960s. Starting in the late 1970s until Lifespring disbanded in the mid-1990s, dozens of lawsuits levied a wide variety of complaints against Lifespring, ranging from characterizing it as a fraudulent pyramid scheme to holding it responsible for over two dozen participants' deaths.

Should have realized much sooner that

Kirsten Dunst is one of our best living actors. She is such a gem and god so good in this role. The show gets better with each episode so I'm rating it an 8/10 as of episode 4. Everyone in this is golden, so funny and dark, I wish it was released all at once, I would have gotten through it joyfully in a day.

EDIT lowered rating to 7/10, second half of season is not as good. It's like Fargo with all the air sucked out of it.
