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.
