Did You Know?


The title of this episode, "Loplop", is the name of a birdlike character featured in prints, collages and paintings by artist Max Ernst. Loplop was an alter ego which Ernst developed and functioned as a familiar animal. Loplop first appeared in Ernst's collage novels "La Femme 100 Têtes" and "Une Semaine de Bonté" in the role of a narrator and commentator. See more »


The store owner mentions that "the hippies will have you believe" that his wife's hairspray is causing the planet to heat up. In 1979, climate change was not well known outside of the scientific community and the popular opinion at the time was global cooling. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change did not start peer review research of global warming data until 1988. It is true, however, that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in aerosol sprays had already been regulated by 1979. Scientists first warned in 1974 that CFCs were depleting the ozone layer, and the first law restricting their use passed in 1977. See more »

Peggy Gets Her Day
2 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I can't help but recommend Kirsten Dunst for an Emmy. I mean, her performance as Peggy Blomquist is stunning. She rises and falls with an emotional barrage that is masterful. Most of the episode takes place in a lake cabin on Lake Vermillion. The Blomquists are holding Dodd Gerhardt hostage and are trying to figure out a way to use him to allow them to get back to normal. Of course, he is villainous to a T and isn't the perfect guest. The fact that giving him up will get the rest of the clan to say, "OK. We'll leave you alone," is ludicrous. Ed keeps going to the gas station to make phone calls. The only one he gets is the psycho, Mike Milligan, and he offers the same deal to him to get the Gerhardts off his back. Peggy tortures Dodd for his "bad manners." Everything is converging now and we have but two episodes left to go. I am so sad that this is going to end and we'll have to wait another year.
