The seasons are self contained stories, Jon
Tonight will be the 3rd episode of the second season. I see no reason why you can't jump in at the start of the season and watch it to completion and then go back and watch season 1. All the episodes for this season are available on the FX app for free (you have to login using your cable provider).
Also, the only story connection between season 1 and 2 is that the daughter of the State Trooper in season 2 is the female sheriff in season 1.
Watched the 2nd ep last night. I like how it seems to be taking its time like last season, and letting the threads come together naturally. I like the struggle of power with the crime families, not just with the guys from New York moving in, but from within the local family, too. Definitely interested in seeing where this is going, especially after re-watching season 1 last week and the constant references to "Sioux Falls". You just know things are going to escalate in such a big way.
I help where I can.
I will not fight!

Also, on a sidenote, FX doesn't get enough attention for their TV lineup. Fargo, American Horror Story and The Americans can be put up against any 3 shows from any network.
We are living in the Golden Age of Teevee.
This is the best show on it a the moment (IMO)
Love the writing, the pacing, the quirkiness, the character development.
Im going to seek out Noah Hawley's novels...

I've been accused of being overly passionate and expressing a knee jerk reaction when it comes to something I enjoy like a movie, but that is not the case here. What I'm about to say I've thought over multiple times and I hold it to be true with every fiber of my being. I'm sure many will disagree and that's fine.
The diner scene from the first episode and the theater scene from the most recent episode can be put up alongside any two scenes from any two gangster films in the history of cinema.
That is the truth. No hyperbole.
Edit: Sam Jackson/John Travolta in "Pulp Fiction", Finale of "Breaking Bad", I'm sure I could go on.
Just how good is this show? A friend at school said that the season two is as good as anything he's seen on tv. Now I see a lot of good stuff, The Wire, SOA, Sopranos, etc. Is this must see tv?
