“… Mrs. Jacoby, do you see?”
Everyone knows that old walnut of wisdom: Never judge a book by its cover. You’ve probably been told that time and time again by your parents. Maybe you heard it in a song. Who knows, maybe it was the overall theme of a movie you’ve watched recently where opposites meet, dislike one another at first, but as they slowly get to know each other they realize they have more in common than they think. By the end of the movie, they become the best of friends. That’s pretty much what happened between myself and Manhunter.
