An original adaptation of the Academy Award(R)-winning feature film, Fargo features an all-new "true crime" story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humour, murder and "Minnesota nice" that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar(R) winner and Emmy(R)-nominated Billy Bob Thornton stars as "Lorne Malvo," a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman "Lester Nygaard," played by BAFTA Award(R) winner and Emmy(R)-nominated Martin Freeman. Emmy(R)-nominated Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy "Gus Grimly," a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Emmy(R)-nominated Allison Tolman also stars as "Molly Solverson," an ambitious Bemidji deputy.

Obviously the acting is top-notch with actors like Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Allison Tolman (surprisingly good), and Colin Hanks. Billy Bob Thornton as Lorne Malvo is by far my favorite character on the show. He give an incredible performance each episode.
This is my favorite new show of 2014 and hopefully we can get another season in the near future! I can't wait to re-watch this series on blu-ray.
Each season of Fargo is a complete show, with it's own story and character arcs. This is series that knows what it wants to be and does it well, like other great crime shows like Breaking Bad, The Wire, and Sons of Anarchy.
If you’re looking for good stuff to watch consider miniseries like The Astronauts Wives Club (2015), Band of Brothers (2001), Frank Herbert’s Dune (2000), Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune (2003), Into the West (2005), Lonesome Dove (1989), Manhattan (2014-2015), Return to Lonesome Dove (1993), Pride and Prejudice (1995), Taken (2002) and The 10th Kingdom (2000), which are all terrific because they have clear beginnings that establish an objective, then strong middles and conclusive endings where the goal is achieved, like a good novel.
Other shows I’ve really enjoyed include Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009), Breaking Bad (2008-2013), Cowboy Bebop (1998), Downton Abbey (2010-2015), Firefly (2002), Game of Thrones (2011-2019), Granite Flats (2013-2015), The IT Crowd (2006-2013), Jericho (2006-2008), Merlin (2008-2012), The Prisoner (1967-1968), Rome (2005-2007), Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (2011), Spartacus: Blood and Sand (2010), Stargate: SG-1 (1997-2007), Stargate: Atlantis (2004-2009), Star Trek (1966-1969), Star Trek Voyager (1995-2001), and The Tudors (2007-2010). I didn’t list any contemporary series I’m following that don’t have an end date yet, not conducive to binge watching from beginning to finish.
If you like reading try some of my favorite fantasy and sci-fi authors: Richard Adams, Palo Bacigulupi, Suzanne Collins, Abe Evergreen, Diana Gabaldon, Hugh Howey, George Martin, Brandon Sanderson, John Scalzi, and Andy Weir.
