2 Episodes
2/15/14 - 2 22/14

EPISODE ONE (2/15/14)

SUMMARY:  While making a drug deal, Oscar Zeta Acosta is dosed with LSD; as the stewardess turns into a duck, the man he's dealing with pulls a gun on him.  Cut to Hunter S. Thompson, who says he's started the story at the end.  There are all kinds of ways to tell a story: he could start with Oscar's life at home with a henpecking wife.  He could introduce characters like Ralph Steadman who will be important later in the story.  He could have the villain, Richard Nixon, spout exposition.  And indeed, all this happens, in brief.  But ultimately, Thompson decides to go back to the beginning and loop around, telling how he and Oscar set out on a journey of discovery across America.
