"Immersing oneself into the world of synchronicity and synchromysticism can be a bit disorienting at times." ~ Andrew W. Griffin, January 29, 2015, "Lattice of coincidence," Red Dirt Report.
"A lot of people don’t realize what’s really going on. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidences and things. They don’t realize that there’s this, like, lattice of coincidence that lays on top of everything." ~ Repo Man, 1984, Alex Cox Writter/Director

Roswell (TV Series) - as James Valenti Sr., especially on one episode - "Secrets and Lies" (2001).
After serving in World War II, James joined the Roswell Sheriff's Department. Deputy James Valenti was at the scene of the Crash in the summer of 1947. Over the next twelve years, James became a father (Jim Jr., born 1951) and eventually Sheriff of Chavez County.
On November 16, 1959, Sheriff James Valenti Sr. discovered the corpse of James Atherton. That same year, Valenti investigated the death of an actress who died from a freak lightning strike during the filming of They Are Among Us in Roswell. According to makeup artist Bess Covendall, Valenti's investigations caused 'quite a stir'. Valenti's efforts to uncover the truth earned him the ridicule of the F.B.I. and the nickname "Sgt. Martian". His eight-year old son Jim Jr. was an eyewitness to his father's growing obsession.
In 1972, Valenti met Everett Hubble. Valenti learned that Hubble's wife was killed in the same manner as Atherton; the killer leaving no marks other than a silver handprint. Hubble convinced Valenti that the killer had disguised himself as a drifter, and the two men tracked the suspect to a silo. Hubble shot the drifter, but Valenti took the fall. Valenti lost his job as Sheriff, beginning a slow slide into dementia.
Jim Valenti, Jr. was eventually forced to put his father (Stanley Anderson playing this role) in a home, where his visits have since become less and less frequent. Source.
