To further illustrate people's investment in
ABC's Clue-inspired reality game show Whodunnit? Breaking Bad, when the cable went out in the small coastal town of Fairfield, Connecticut around 9pm last night, we assume a lot of people punched pillows, cussed at television screens, and displaced anger on their significant others like normal, mildly dysfunctional Americans. But a lot of people also called 911. Enough people, in fact, that the Fairfield Police Department had to remind the community via their Facebook page that the whole point of 911 is, like, to save lives and stuff. In defense of Fairfield residents, Money Magazine once ranked the postcard-esque town the best place to live in the Northeast (thanks for that, Wikipedia), so missing the season premiere of a mind-bending television drama may have been an emergency in otherwise unruffled postcard lives. I want to move there.
