This looks fantastic. Maybe people will realize Fargo has always been better than True Detective.

Noah Hawley had a great interview on The Nerdist Writers Panel by the way:

This is probably the best show on TV right now. Every scene is packed with meaning. There are layers upon layers and numerous quirky delights to uncover... a welcome contrast to The Walking Dead. (The AV Club has an especially good review of this episode.)

The dialogue and the editing were both appropriately off-kilter and sometimes even jarring. I don't think that was my imagination. Skip Macdonald (of Breaking Bad) edited, so that's interesting.

SPOILER

Shame that we (presumably) don't get to see Kieran Culkin in future episodes.

I didn't watch Season 1, but I saw Kirsten Dunst interviewed and someone else talk about it, so I watched the S2 premiere.
I enjoyed it. It felt pretty much like the recent good AMC TV series, and Tarantino.

Stick with the show, cause I guarantee it's just getting started. Season 1 had an episode or two of wind-up, then really took off and was masterful through the end.

Also, watch Season 1. Best Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman performances ever.

Another great one. Slightly less exciting, but a lot of things are being set up.

I can't help but think about Plemons doing FNL, Breaking Bad, The Master, and now this.
You can tell that the actor with the brothers from Kansas City is having a lot of fun with that part.

Finally had time to catch up on this show. Watched all of Season 1 and caught up on 2 ove the last couple weeks. Yeah, wow. If you're not watching this, you're watching TV wrong. Nic Pizzolatto must hate it.

SPOILERS for season two:
-love all the Vietnam talk.
-when are we going to talk about the UFO's?
-I hope they go BTTF-style, and do a season 3 in the 1800s.

I'm enjoying season 2 so far a lot more than season 1 since it's more of its own beast, and less blatantly, tediously derivative of the Coens' oeuvre, but I'm still bemused by anyone talking about it as if it's a game changer. It's good, it's very entertaining, there isn't a single weak link in the cast and I'm interested to see how everything will go down. But it still feels more like a fun pastiche than a bold work that can stand alone. It's a hell of a lot better than True Detective 2 (though that's kind of a backhanded compliment, jeeeeeeesus that was bad), but it doesn't touch the best of Coens, Sopranos, Breaking Bad etc. Not even close.


But not everything has to be a masterpiece. I'm still glad it exists and will keep watching. Nothing wrong with a pastiche, just nothing truly great about them either.

Yep, it's pretty great. I don't like it as much as season 1, but that's only because it doesn't have Billy Bob Thornton in probably his best role ever. It's still great and the only T.V. show right now that I watch as it airs (or at least the next day so I can see it on FX Now)

Anyone else think season 3 might go back even further in time? See some more shit like that movie theater scene?

This last episode had the tension of a season finale, I was on edge through almost the entire thing.

Officially renewed for a third season.

Quote
Fargo may still be powering through its second season on FX, but a decision's already been made regarding the show's future. The cable network announced this afternoon that Noah Hawley's dark, quirky examination of assorted rural Minnesotans will continue after season two finishes in December. Hawley will remain the showrunner, and Joel and Ethan Coen — the duo behind the 1996 film of the same name, which inhabits the same universe — will continue on as executive producers.

Fargo's first season won three Emmy Awards in 2014, including prizes for Outstanding Miniseries and Outstanding Directing in a Miniseries, and it picked up nominations in three of the four major acting categories. It'll take a while before we find out how much hardware its second season is going to take home, but the show's leap into the past has been met with even more critical praise than its first season. Because Fargo's a limited series, a third season will feature all new characters and settings, and given the gap between the first two seasons it could take place within a totally different decade, too.

"Year two of Fargo is an extraordinary achievement," said FX co-president of original programming Eric Schrier in a statement. "Given Noah Hawley's masterful storytelling, we can't wait to see where the third, all-new version of Fargo takes us." If Hawley's work on a show about the X-Men and a Cat's Cradle limited series continues to develop, he could be in line for an extremely busy 2016.
