    Just binged a bit on the 2nd season last night.

    I think it's amazing, the Coen brothers are incredible. It's like David Lynch teamed up with Quentin Tarantino to make a really long movie.

    I didn't think they were going to make another after the first season as that seemed ages ago but if the third season is as good as the first two I'm putting it up there with The Wire and Sopranos as best tv drama ever.

    Sinead O'Connor appearing from nowhere was a powerful moment, if there's a sweeter voice I've not heard it.

    Was good to read in here Billy Bob Thornton won a Golden Globe. He is a true artist, one of the greats.

    I thought all 3 were brilliant, I did enjoy 1 the best and probably BBT was the reason behind that with his character.

    Don't know how to pull up the clip from you tube, but when Lester is murdering his wife with the hammer, and uttering 'oh heck' was first class

    The best thing to come out in recent years. Season 1 was by far the most enjoyable imo, but season 2 and 3 were both excellent aswell. Billy Bob Thornton was sensational in 1.

    I didn't recognise him. It's like all good drama series have actors in it you recognise but you can't remember where from, like the cop in Season 2, he's really famous but I don't know his name or what I've seen him in before.

    Anyway, I didn't really like Season 3, thought the story didn't have much substance for Fargo although as a stand alone drama it would be very good. It did get better once a certain character entered the scene who didn't say very much.

    What's interesting is I realised what directors mean when they talk about 'screen presence' because I thought the main character and ES had incredible presence. Now I understand why she is highly regarded. I almost felt they were let down by the storyline.

    Very disappointed with Varga although his performance was critically acclaimed, I thought it was a terrible piece of over acting from DT, a Shakespearean level actor.

    I found out later that it received the same amount of nominations as the second series which was surprising.

    What wasn't surprising was EM winning a Golden Globe, it's one of the finest pieces of character acting I've seen. I literally had no idea it was him and he's one of the most recognisable people on the planet.

    A random note, the best older version of a character I've seen was whoever played ES later in life, she really looks so much like her.

    @Gabriel That is a good sign I think because it sounds like they're taking time over it to make sure it's of the high level Fargo demands. Hopefully.

    Just read EM is going out with his co-star. Did anyone else think she looks like Sharapova in a wig?

    I'm so late to the party on this but I have loved all three seasons. Season 4 is airing just now and I have downloaded 7 episodes of it. Billy Bob's sudden cold and serious demeanour change in the netflix preview bit sold me to give it a shot. Watched the film years ago and liked it but wasn't blown away otherwise I'd have been all over this from the start.

    Anyone watching season 4? Cannot believe the difference in quality. Love the setting and era but it is absolutely *. The acting is so bad, I can't believe its the same guy who's made the other 3 seasons. I think I'll pretend it ended at season 3.
