I think my favorite Lou Dobbs era was when he was completely incensed about the movie "Bad Santa." It was clear he hadn't seen the movie but thought it was somehow a movie about the "real" Santa (who, you know, isn't real), instead of a mall Santa, who could be real, but is not actually Santa, and maybe a drunk jerk, but still not actually Santa who doesn't exist. I hope I don't get sued for telling Lou that Santa isn't real.
Also, too, watch the "Fargo" series. Billy Bob is in full Billy Bob mode which is always awesome. Though the show should have more Billy Bob.
