Official Fargo-Only thread

Post by dualstow » Mon Oct 12, 2015 11:24 pm

What is it about the innocent Minnesotan accent + violence that I love so much? I don't know, but I do love it. And it's got some cast this season. Had to stay up and watch 2.1 tonight, and I was not disappointed. Thank heavens a friend wrote to remind me that it was back on FX.

(Yes, Minnesota, not North Dakota).

It's really a good show.

There is something mesmerizing about watching such bad things happen in such a seemingly innocent place.

I wonder how Dutch will fit in to all of this.

Hey, this thread finally got a bite! Thanks Adam.
I would think this show would be more popular w/ PP'ers, now that Breaking Bad is over and some of us don't know what do do with ourselves TV-wise. Then again, it's best to just leave the screen for work & Internet and pick up a real paper book once in a while.

Still, this show is a masterpiece. And, it's got guns and stuff.
Season 2 is only two episodes out and I feel confident in pronouncing it amazing.

Okay, then.

I was busying watching M*A*S*H, Danger Mouse, Covert Affairs and now Falling Skies.  I don't like commercials or waiting a week between episodes.  So maybe in couple of years....  Live TV is so yesterday!

You shouldn't be allowed to talk about watching MASH and to say "so yesterday" in the same breath.  8)
I know what you mean, but Fargo is that good. I have to watch it as it comes out.

Watched the first episode of the second season last night. I'm liking it so far! Thanks for the tip.

Are the Cohen Brothers behind it?  I think they were the movie.

They are executive producers, but I don't think they have any creative input. I wasn't sure until the other day when I saw a headline about one of the brothers not wanting to return to television anytime soon.

Any chance this new thread could just contain Fargo stuff like the Breaking Bad thread was pure B.B. content?
Honestly, I keep seeing hits on the Fargo's Back thread and when I visit for new posts it's just a general list of good tv shows.
