    I'm cautiously optimistic about this 3rd season: both because it takes place in 2010, and now because it has mah girl Winstead in it.

    I loved the 1st season, and thought the 2nd shit the bed really bad after the first few episodes. Mostly due to the hokey style over substance, which seemed to me inspired by the retro theme. A 2010 setting should get back to the simple hometown noir that made the film & the 1st season true classics.

    best anthology on tv

    however, little surprised they are jumping back to a tale of two brothers themed story.

    excited and will watch.

    Ted Danson was great

    The 1st season was the shit though. The brit Martin Freeman played a great weasel as Lester, and Billy Bob was a goddamn force of nature.

    Loved season 2 and the parallels between big corporations and small town mom and pop enterprises; something that was really staring to take root in the 70's. The huge KC outfit coming in an essentially trying to buy out the long standing small town operation -- and of course, since it was organized crime, there was no market solution so it ended up a blood battle. Just to mega side win -- but, with the caveat that MIke realizing the landscape of the business is drastically changing; the same realizes the small mom and pop shops have to come to realize.

    Oh, and awesome and brutal kill scenes

    brilliant.

    Still have season 1 ahead.

    There was a UFO in season 2? o_O
    Glad to see other people loved season 1 the most. I found season 2 was creepy, stilted and boring and without the humor and likeability of the chatacters.
    Contrary to probably everyone; I don't like Ewan McGregor or Mary Weinstead. I find her really vacant and unexpressive as an actress.
    Ill check it out still, season 1 knocked my socks off and I didn't care for any of the actors before that.

    I'm pretty sure Malvo kills Hanzee, you know when Hanzee becomes older, fat, and Italian...

    Excited for season 3 btw!!!

    Come on, Kirsten Dunst was an amazing kooky bitch. And I mean that with the utmost respect.

    Meh, I don't know anything about Mary Elizabeth Winstead but Fargo is so good they can bring in anyone and i'm sure it'll still deliver.

    Not very familiar with that actress tbh. But I thought she was alright in 10 Cloverfield Lane.

    Also, season 1 and 2 were both amazing IMO. So definitely looking forward to this very much. IMO season 2 was one of the greatest seasons of any TV show I've seen recently.

    You and I are reversed -I thought the 1st season was whack as fuck, and the 2nd was some of the best television I've ever seen.

    Agree on being cautiously optimistic about season 3 tho.

    Also, Winstead is badass. I hope she can do the show schedule wise. I've only seen her in Scott Pilgrim.. but I loved her character and the way she played it.

    I have noticed Petey making some weird statements about TV shows lately. I also caught him in another thread trying to defend True Detective S2.

    I'm worried that he may have hit his head or something.

    You should give 10 Cloverfield Lane a look.

    Nah, @Peteyandjia has been pretty consistent with his dislike of Fargo Season 2 and love for TD Season 2. Is normal.




    Been meaning to, but I'm at a point where I'm just going to wait for it to hit Netflix or cable because I already know the entire story due to the Internet.

    lol


    BB looks so frail and sickly in this series. I just couldn't buy into him as a badass. Part of the reason I disliked the 1st season.

    And for the record, I typically enjoy Billy Bobs performances.

    I think it's unlikely that BrainDead will get a second season. It wasn't bad, but the ratings weren't very good from what I heard.

    On top of that Mary Elizabeth Winstead is also doing season 2 of Mercy Street, so she's going to be pretty busy.

    As for the role proper, it doesn't take a genius to figure out from that description that she's going to be seducing the Ewan McGregor character that is a sad-sack parole officer.
