It is so easy to fall…

It is so easy to fall down the research hole as a writer. Currently I am reading _A Long Way Gone_ as research for the refugee in war zone aspect of the book, reading _Dragonfly in Amber_ as research for female protagonist in long-running series aspect of the book, and watching _Voyager_ as research for female protagonist ditto.

Am now considering whether I should watch _The Godfather_ as research for mobster family elements of book. Admission: I have never actually seen _The Godfather_. I know, I know. One of the best films ever made, etc. It sounds so grim, though. And aren't there two sequels? Would I also have to watch those? It's a big time commitment, and while I could watch it with Kevin, it doesn't really sound like date night material.
