For this episode we went fishing into all of Tim Burton's films and pulled out one Big Fish.
William Bloom: You know about icebergs, Dad? Edward Bloom (senior): Do I? I saw an iceberg once. They were haulin' down it down to Texas for drinkin' water. They didn't count on there bein' a elephant frozen inside. The wooly kind. A mammoth. William Bloom: Dad! Edward Bloom (senior): What? William Bloom: I'm tryin' to make a metaphor here. Edward Bloom (senior): Well, you shouldn't have started with a question, because most people wanna answer questions. You should've started with "the thing about iceberg is"
You ever had one of those friends who is a one upper? Always telling fantastical stories that you know can't be true? Even in a moment that is meant to be your own?
Well that was William Bloom's whole life. His dad always told these fantastic stories but he never really felt like he knew who his dad was. After 3 years(a significant time in this story) of not talking to his dad William goes on a journey through time, imagination, and old fashioned looking through papers in the garage to figure out who his dad was before his dad's time is up.
It is a real feel good movie that left us thinking of our friend Jeff and how he left more smiles then tears in the end.
