Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

So the missus is in Aussie working so I get to watch my guilty pleasures. Binge watching series 2 Fargo, it’s as brilliant as series 1 :approve:

I loved S2 but I think S3 was even better and that is no slight to S2. The characters were great and seeing Mary Elizabeth Winstead all the time just made it even better.

S3 wasn't quite as compelling to me. I certainly enjoyed the deeper morality play involved, but as a whole the characters and story didn't seize me as well as either of the first two seasons. It's not a huge criticism, mind you, as most tv series don't come close to the third season of Fargo. But comparing it against itself, that one ends up behind the others.

I will try and finish 2 and get into 3 before she gets back.

Yeah it could also be a case of S3 being fresher in my mind. And yeah Fargo is way better than most anything else in the TV realm.

Just finished Fargo 2. Brilliant. But what was the space ship all about?

I always accepted it as part of the winking, fast-and-loose attitude towards truth—remember that Fargo, movie and tv series, purports to be a true story—but Hawley explains it a bit more here: https://www.indiewire.com/2016/06/fargo ... 201687564/

This series is absolutely fantastic! I love horror - especially creepy, atmospheric ghost type horror - and this Netflix series is some of the best I've ever seen. Creepy as hell. Solid acting. Enough jump scares to keep your heart pounding - but not too many. It's more about what you don't see (or what you think you see).

I'm 6 episodes in - with 4 to go and I'm chomping at the bit to watch the rest. My girlfriend hates horror of any kind and my kids are too young - so I'm cramming it in whenever I can...but I really can't wait to see how it ends.

Highly recommended!!

I've tried a couple times because I adore Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara, but it never caught me.
