Figure I'd make a thread for the Fargo TV series because it's actually pretty darn good and it'd be nice to have a place to talk about it every week. So go on and discuss what you're thinking of the TV series and I guess the film too because it's certainly worth talking about.

Billy Bob Thornton has been great so far. All the cast has been really.

Kept meaning to make this but kept forgetting. Yeah it's been great. I'd like to start a topic of conversation up but I can't remember the last episode at all for some reason

I've seen the film and I love it. I don't really get what the series has to do with the film, although I haven't really researched it. Is it just a similar style and set in the same town?

yup

More or less. I guess there are a few comparable characters too but none are exactly alike. If you're a fan of Fargo or the Coen brothers then it's definitely worth a look.

So far, great. Billy Bob Thorton plays such a great ass-hole.

Just watched the most recent episode. It continues to get better. Everybody in the cast is doing a really great job as far as I'm concerned, especially Billy Bob Thornton.

So I guess the show takes place in the same fiction as the film. The opening scene with Stavros finding the money from the film was great. The whole Plagues of Egypt thing going on is good too. Guess it's all leading up to the death of the firstborn.

This is quickly becoming one of my favourite shows. I'm enjoying every plot thread that's going on.

I'm on the 4th episode. Probably should've said as much, sorry.

I just started watching episode 3 right before I saw this thread. I'm really enjoying this show so far.

The fourth episode was good. I'm really enjoying this.

That was great, really tempted to stream the next episode tomorrow.

Also, every time i watch it, the opening theme gives me goosebumps.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Nah it's pretty good, seems to get better by the episode. It's more like a series inspired by the film than an adaptation or sequel or something.

Fargo's up there for me too. The first episode was a little hard to get through (mainly the first half an hour or so) because of too many references to the show and maybe me comparing it too much, but it's good.

So it does involve the events in the film in some way? I guess I should go watch it.

The only link so far is that someone finds a bag of money that was there from events in the film, and whilst that's linked to the film, watching the film wouldn't really help or affect anything else in the plot currently (though I guess if that link is there there might be more to come).
#31
Just watched the film. It was pretty good but I prefer the show. And yeah the bag is the only link so far, but there are a shit ton of parallels between the two, to the point where the film is worth watching for perspective.

guys wtf

why are we not discussing what just happened in the new episode. I'm freaking out.


Also, I've made my mind up. This show is Breaking Bad levels of good.

Just to be clear, episode 6?

Fucking Gus Grimly! I like his character but he's just so incompotent as a cop and I really liked Molly. Hopefully she isn't actually dead but then again, I wouldn't be surprised if she was.

The whole "suicide by police" thing was also very tense.

It really is getting better with every episode and it started pretty damn well. I just can't really fault the show for anything. It's well written. It's got excellent pacing. The cast continues to do a great job. It's just surpassed all expectations I had for it.

Sadly, I don't think this thread has really caught on.

Personally, I'd prefer if Molly were actually dead, as it would make it much more intense when Grimly finally confronts Malvo 1v1.

I'm more broken up about Malvo betraying Don, as well as Malvo killing Mr. Numbers. Goddamn Malvo. If I didn't love him so much as a character I'd be really pissed off.


I don't think it's the thread, it seems like this show hasn't caught on that much in general. Which is unfortunate considering how good it is. The fact that it's only a 10 episode-run show probably doesn't help though, since by the time it picks up steam it will be over.

I do agree that it'd probably be the better choice dramatically. I just really like Molly.

And no matter who Malvo kills, they're going to be a good character. Don was particularly entertaining on screen though so he will be missed.

Is it just 10 episodes then done forever or is there going to be a second series? If the latter, then I could see it picking up a lot of speed on streaming services/DVD before a second series because it is REALLY good.
#39
The fact that this show is on the eighth episode of a ten episode season and this thread is on the first page is criminal

This show is incredible and keeps getting better.
