About to start watching Fargo. Worth it?
Let's just say I have a lot of down time at work on nightshift. Popping in Fargo tonight. Read some good stuff about it. What says the Movie board?

re: About to start watching Fargo. Worth it?
I assumed the show would be mediocre because the movie was so good.

I was wrong.

Then I thought season 2 would be a letdown because season 1 was so good.

I was wrong again.


I haven't watched season 3 yet.

Season 1 is one of the best seasons of television ever.

And season 2, and season 3. They are all outstanding, and yet different. That's not an easy thing to pull off.

is every season a different story?

Season 1 is great.

Season 2 is equal to or better than Season 1.

Season 3 is quirky and somewhat interesting but nowhere near as good as the first two seasons.

I finally got around to watching Season 1 on Hulu about a month ago and really liked it. All the performances were very good. Haven't got a chance to start Season 2 yet but will at some point.

let's just say I've had far too many nights of going to bed at 1 am because I can't stop binging season 3.

It's one of the best shows on TV.

Different story and different time period. Though one character did make if from season 1 into season 3. And there is a little spill over from season 2 into season 1 (which happened decades later). And there are sly nods between the seasons and all of the Coen's movies. But each season is a different story.

could not disagree more. Season 3 has been fantastic thus far. I'm on episode 8. All have been equally great IMO. The writing, casting and acting is refreshingly consistent.

re: About to start watching Fargo. Worth it?
yeah I lost interest a few episodes in to this last season, didn't really hook me like the 1 & 2 but I'll finish it off soon.

2 was awesome but ended kind of flat

The movie is one of my all-time favorite movies, so I avoided the TV series, as there was no way it could measure up. I was wrong. The show is terrific, and anchored by some spectacular performances. They do a good job of making it movie-adjacent and not disturbing the self-contained story.

Noah Hawley is one of the best people working in TV right now. I'll watch anything he's connected with now.
