Thanks for sharing! Theroux is entertaining and even though we don't get him on TV where I live, I've watched a half dozen or so of his episodes
over the years. Love it.
I watched this last night and wow, not what I expected! I was intrigued when the owner of almost heaven (Bo) sent Louis out to where he could find the
"violent conspiracy" cadre. Louis must have been a little nervous when he walked up to the 2 men working on a structure, after all, Bo said they
would probably get greeted with a gun and a "get the hell off my property".
Instead of encountering a violent, hateful, lunatic fringe, Louis was welcomed by Mike Kane(Caine?), a normal, thinking, working class, god fearing,
generous and polite man who believes in America and the constitution. Mike didn't come off as a gun-nut psycho killer; He came off as a man whom was
concerned with the state of the country and was living the way he was as a means to protect his loved ones.
I think Louis was STUNNED when all was said and done with this episode, in regards to mike. I mean if you can come off as "not insane" after
spending a few days with Louis, you are in the infinitesimally small minority. Kudos to Mr. Kane.
The hardware store guy seemed like an ignorant, low IQ jerk. The aryan brotherhood guys were genuinely stupid on the fringe of insanity. The guy that
lived in his tiny cabin in the woods seemed normal enough to me. He wasn't bothering anybody out there.
I'd be interested to read other people's impressions of mike. Remember, this episode is 11 years old now. We can look back at it now and say that
none of that UN or doomsday stuff has happened, yet it seems a lot more believable now than it did back then, IMO.
Great episode, again, thanks for sharing. I wouldn't have seen this otherwise.
