    Finally got around to watching the finale and LOVED it. Overall, a GREAT season of television! Not to try to de-mystify the ending of Colin Hanks getting off scott-free from murdering Malvo in cold blood, since I'm fine with just looking at it as a non-reality based morality tale, but I think the Bemidji police could have EASILY "fixed" things to make it appear as a self-defense killing.

    I REALLY hope another season is coming as long as the quality can keep up. Billy Bob will be missed, but there's plenty of great actors out there who could captivate us with a new characters. The majority of the Dexter seasons had unique villainous characters played superbly by great actors.

    Absolutely. There are a lot of stories to be told in the Fargo universe.

    I tried to program this in for a DVR set last night and couldn't find it at all. No repeats? Guess I will have to check the FIOS on demand...

    Renewed for second season:

    Bring on Sioux Falls. Outside of Carradine in a bad wig, sitting on a porch protecting a young Molly, any thoughts for casting? Fassbender was the first that came to mind for some reason, but I'm sure there are closer matches out there. (Tom Hiddleston would rule.)

    Hawley wrote all of the episodes of the first season, so if he's doing that again, it'll probably take more than a year for the show to be back. With Sons of Anarchy and Justified both ending this season, there's gonna be an empty slot for FX's fall and midseason schedules.

    Hopefully FX doesn't rush Hawley, and just airs Fargo in one of these slots.

    FX just announced that Patrick Wilson is going to be playing the '70s version of Keith Carradine in Season 2.


    Meanwhile, Nick Offerman's also been confirmed, along with Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Brad Garrett, Kieran Culkin, and Bokeem Woodbine (hell yeah) signed on (plus the previously-announced Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons):

    ...Holy cow, that's a phenomenal cast so far.

    I wonder how Ted Danson is juggling CSI and Fargo?

    My wife and I just recently finished watching Fargo (yup, we're behind the times). We both thought it was very well done. Good performances all around.


    I think the character most transformed from where he was in the beginning to what he became, was Lester. He was something of a milk toast type person who became someone who was...more aggressive in his dealings with others. He changed from someone who murdered his wife as a spontaneous act to someone who sent his second wife to her death and knew he was doing it.


    While Lester was never a person to admire, he became someone to despise.


    My wife and I have both decided that the level of violence in the series is to much for US. It was just too graphic, too in-your-face, too realistic. This series was willing to kill anybody and we found the tension just too much. One season is enough.

    My mother just started watching Everybody Loves Raymond and asked what Robert has been up to. I jokingly encouraged her to catch him in the next season of Fargo. I told her, "You just have to put up with extreme, shoving-people-into-woodchipper levels of violence." She demurred. :)


    Noah Hawley's pretty good. Too bad none of you watched The Unusuals, which had a brief, brilliant life.

    I finally got around to watching this show. I have to say that it was great TV. Really well done. I loved the evolution of the story.
