Fargo vs True Detective

Both are self contained short run series about murder, but that is where the similarities end. Both lead actors on Fargo & TD are outstanding with an edge to TD, but the supporting ensemble on Fargo blow TD out of the water.The humor on TD was great, but much more subtle than on Fargo. And I prefer the latter. As we approach the finale of Fargo I find myself enjoying the series as a whole more than TD. Im sure I am in the minority but at this point I would have to say that Fargo is the better overall series. Does anybody feel the same way?

I think Fargo might be better if the ending matches the rest of the season.

I agree. Honestly, if TD wasn't set in Louisiana, you wouldn't be in the minority.

I really enjoy both but I have to say I looked forward to True Detective each week more than I do Fargo.

But wait.. Fargo is just a "mini-series" as well? So the finale is the end of this storyline? This is news to me.

Fargo will be forever and always be under True Detective, primarily because of HBO and the option to show fantastic boobs.

From what I have read, yes this is the end with (most of)these characters. Next season will start new, like TD or American Horror Story

I fell asleep from boredom trying to watch the first episode of TD. Haven't tried again since. Have enjoyed Fargo so far. Maybe I'll give TD another shot that isn't before bed so I can attempt to focus on it better.

3rd episode of TD is awesome. The one where they go into the Beaumont Ghetto.

I am still disappointed in the TD ending. just 10 minutes more detail on Carcossa and the players invovled would have avoided this criticism.

Fargo has been much better than True Detective IMO. But it hasn't stuck the landing yet, and that's where TD ultimately collapsed, so the jury's still out until next Tuesday.

Meh, I guess I'll tune in to Fargo one day.
