    I feel this really worked. Fargo the series draws parallels with Fargo the movie without them being the same characters. The flash forward is kind of jarring but it was a clever way to get Molly to the same lumbering around, super pregnant state that Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand) was in the film.
    This was something I really appreciated about last week's episode, as well. I also adore how the series has taken this long to get to this parallel, establishing Molly first as the sidekick, essentially, (with the nice little red herring of her partner and his pregnant wife drawing a little parallel with Marge and her husband,) then we had Molly and Gus working together as partners and slowly developing as something a little more than that, and now we see, as you said, the clear parallel to Marge and her rather cute, slightly laid back marriage to her husband. I think taking this long to get to this point and taking the time to establish Molly as very much her own character and not just a Marge copy really helped - seeing the parallel is something to make the audience appreciate it rather than making instant unfavourable comparisons to the original source material. I've said it once, I'll say it again: Fargo is one of the best film-to-TV adaptations I have ever seen.

    Incredible finale. Wrapped it up o so nicely. This is the best series I have seen in quite a while, no scratch that (since I just watched True Detective a few months ago.) What with these two shows plus Game of Thrones, what an awesome year of episodic tv!

    This show seemed to get better with each episode. I wasn't sure if I liked it after the first episode but I loved it by the last. I think that shows the strength of the writing that it just kept getting stronger. I didn't know who to cheer for in the Malvo/Lester showdown. It was crazy how much Lester changed in a year but the writing made it believable.

    Yeah, I totally agree. Looking forward to where they take it next year. New Antagonists, but the same law enforcement would be my guess

    Watched the finale on Sunday and absolutely loved it. I think the only complaint I have is
    Spoiler:
    that Lester was found out a little too easily, with Molly just stumbling across rather neat little evidence that Lorne made. After all the work she had put into trying to bust Lester, it just seemed a little too easy, imo.
    But everything else was perfect, I thought. In fact, I loved the whole series, especially the parallels between Gus and Lester, and how after encountering Lorne, each went their own path towards light or darkness. I seriously cannot wait for the blu ray release, so I can watch the whole thing again (not something I often rush out to do, but I just adore the story of this show so much). In the meantime, I might check out True Detective. I've heard a lot of great things about that.

    Such a great cast for the new season of Fargo. I'm a huge fan of Nick Offerman, but I noticed they didn't put his name in the trailer. I hope he's in it a lot. He's so good.

    I have a feeling Fargo's season 2 is going to work better than True Detective's season 2.

    I love the line from the teaser they released earlier, "Gimme' a chocolate glaze."

    For people who like Fargo, there's an upcoming novel called IS FAT BOB DEAD YET? by Stephen Dobyns that has a serious Fargo vibe going on.

    Funny you should mention that book. I just read about it in Entertainment Weekly and it sounded interesting.

    Not to mention it takes place in my home state of Connecticut, which is cool.

    Caught the first episode of the new series. Oh, I'm so glad this show is back. Definitely one of my favourites. I was a little worried that the low reception season 2 of True Detective received would be a bad sign, (not that I watched it, I was certainly in no rush after all the bad reviews,) but despite a whole new cast of characters, it still feels brilliantly Fargo. I love that it still has the cute married couple template (loved seeing little Molly having a story read to her), I loved the moment at the diner that made you think, "Well THAT escalated quickly!", I even loved the ordinary couple with Kirsten Dunst and Meth Damon (let's be honest, it's gonna be a while before he loses that name) getting caught up in it all. I'm certainly excited to see where it's all heading, anyway.

    Yeah, it's a name I've seen a few people use to describe him a few times. And it's really, really hard to stop calling him that.

    Jesse Plemons. Honestly, I've never really seen the resemblance to Damon dating all the way back to when I first saw him on Friday Night Lights.

    I do hear a lot of people referring to him as a Matt Damon clone.

    This show seems to always produce unlike some other series that also have a new story each year.

    The scene in the diner from the first episode was fantastic in so many ways. I really loved how they kept cutting back to the swinging door as all the shit was going down. Very good editing choice.

    I also liked the scene between Ted Danson and the three Missouri mobsters. Fraught with tension.

    There is no way Danson makes it to the end of the season alive.

    I gotta.check this show out. I like the eclectic cast I keep seeing in commercials. I'm a huge Jean Smart fan so I'm happy whe found her way into another quality TV show.
