Fargo Premiered on FX on April 15, 2014

An original adaptation of the Academy Award®-winning feature film, Fargo features an all-new “true crime” story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that made the film an enduring classic.  Set in Bemidji, Minnesota, this limited drama series follows Lorne Malvo (Oscar® winner Billy Bob Thornton, Sling Blade), a drifter who meets and forever changes the life of an ordinary insurance salesman, Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman, Sherlock). Other key players include Colin Hanks (Dexter) as Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman; Allison Tolman (Sordid Lives: The Series) and Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad) as a pair of Bemidji cops; Kate Walsh (Private Practice) as a former stripper; Oliver Platt (The Big C) as the supermarket king of Minnesota; Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as an ambitious personal trainer; and Russell Harvard (The Hammer) and Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan) as members of the Fargo crime syndicate.

Kitty saying to Lester she married the wrong brother was asking for trouble and finding out she gave the high-school bully a hand job must of hurt but hitting her over the head with a hammer was surprising, the stranger in the hospital killing Sam the bully I thought would want something in exchange but turning Sam's kids against each-other was amusing and Lester running into the wall to knock himself out was quick thinking as there were two dead bodies to explain

The look on her face when he hit the hammer into her head was amusing but i have to say killing Sam was unexpected because he waited until right moment but at least he died being happy .

Who would of thought one man could be so influential into people lives just by talking to them

Well that deputy really seem only one that suspect Lester but no else in department believes her and Lester isn't doing himself any favours by avoiding her because she not going give up.

That has to be the worst sign language I have ever seen but cutting the throat was clear enough and so much for Molly letting the Sheriff doing the talking but he was to close a friend to think logically and giving him ideas was unprofessional and I'm not surprised the dick in the bar ended up in the trunk of the car

I thought the guy in the trunk was taken from the bar and not where he worked in-front of everyone but Molly dropping the photo was a great way to get a reaction and her timing was great as she scared away the other guys

Yes but she seems to be only one in right track which is a shame and that van with all those substance was interesting but taking over the blackmail attempt and step it up was amusing
Author: codebreaker    Time: 5-7-2014 10:02     Subject: 1x04 Eating the Blame

Finding a bag full of money in the middle of nowhere at the exact spot his car ran out of fuel was incredible and you could understand why he thought God was real, the sign language argument was amusing and Lester getting arrested after escaping was a dumb move

Lester being talked into buying a gun with his socks was unbelievable and Gus needing his daughters help with the computer was surprising, about time Molly finally made some headway with the Chief regarding her suspicions about Lester

Yes that was surprising way to get a gun with his socks but have ball barrings in his hand was some evidence some foul play was involved sneaking into his hospital room to get it was risky.

The fable about the rich man was really strange

Well Lester escape from the hospital was well planned but what a way to sneak out get rid of weapons and than sneak back in .

Well it does look like Lester has got away with it but seeing melvo again after 1 year was a surprise to him
Author: codebreaker    Time: 6-6-2014 03:52     Subject: 1x06 Buridan’s Ass

I thought Lester posing as his hospital room mate was going to backfire when the nurse wheeled him out as I thought she might of taken him to operating theatre, taping him to the chair before firing shots was an evil was to have him killed by the police and to make things worse he survived the first attack

Molly surviving being shot by Gus was lucky and Lester screwing Gina after setting him up was amusing but the FBI having lunch with all the gun fire was priceless

Well i have to say those cop had no idea what was going on even when Melvo walked in front of them

Not hearing the gun fire or seeing the bullet holes in the windows was surprising and they was a little slow in reacting to the body coming through the window

And what makes this even worse radio wasn't even on -if it had been they would have an excuse as to how they didn't hear the gunfire.
Author: codebreaker    Time: 6-6-2014 09:20     Subject: 1x08 The Heap

Gina bringing the boys to scare Lester was a waste of time and I'm not surprise the FBI agents were demoted after the killing spree while they were in their car but Molly and Gus being a couple I didn't see coming

really i thought they would make a good couple and i knew it heading that way

Considering Gus was responsible for putting her in hospital after shooting her in the snow blizzard I couldn't see it going that way

Yes but it was cute story and when he told her she was very nice about it most women would been pissed but she took very calmly which suggested she like him otherwise she would been mad . I can see what you mean but it's nice that they ended up with each other

Gus becoming a postman was nice as that was his dream job

Yes at first i was confused than i realise he got fired for accidental shooting and became a postman.

It's certainly much safer than being a cop

What the hell is wrong with Lester pissing off Malvo . He has just got his life together he should just walked away but he really couldn't help it but use his new wife as a decoy was evil. . She didn't deserve that

What a season finale with Lester being last man standing but you just know something bad was going happen to him but falling through the ice was one hell of a quick death. .
Author: codebreaker    Time: 6-19-2014 07:25     Subject: 1x09 A Fox, a Rabbit and a Cabbage

Lester pushing his luck with Malvo was crazy as he was just getting his life back in order and about time someone was interested in Molly's crime board but missing Malvo at the dinner was probable a blessing as he might of killed them all
Author: codebreaker    Time: 6-19-2014 08:07     Subject: 1x10 Morton’s Fork

Lester offering his new wife his coat was evil and going to the coffee shop as a cover was unbelievable but why Malvo didn't kill Lester in the lift with the others was careless as Lester has been a loss cannon from the start, Gus killing Malvo was impressive and Lester falling through the ice was karma

What a stupid way to threaten the judge when she knew who he was from the start but you just knew he was trigger happy from earlier so shooting up the dinner was a little predictable but the hit and run was karma and the driver driving off with the body on the hood was just bizarre

Ed having to clean up Peggy mess wasn't going to be easy with the damage to the car but the blood and body was going to be easy with him being a butcher and in the shop at night was going to draw attention and I thought Hank pulling up that car was going to be gunned down

The search for Rye should be interesting with Ed dismembering his body and with the head of the family having a stroke the Kansas City Mob battling the Gerhardt family should be easier, Peggy listening to the ladies new theory about the shooter was bound to have her worried about the car

Taking the kid to the cinema was a good thing as he was able to save their lives and Hanzee finding the car was a little to easy, Peggy using the money for a course knowing Ed was using it to buy the business was bound to be awkward but Lou asking some awkward questions is going to make them realise they are in deep trouble

Peggy and Ed disagree about what to do next was understandable as Ed tried to clean up after her mess but Peggy was right to want to leave after what Lou said, Ed was lucky the kid was sent to kill him first as if it had been any of the others he would be dead

Peggy declaring Ed's innocence when he was brought in for questioning I thought was amusing as he had been covering up her involvement but with the Gerhardt's on there way to get the kid back from jail could make killing Ed easier, Peggy selling the car has made it easier for the police to examine it for evidence but the way she defended herself was impressive and what the drunk lawyer said was surprising

The German connection doesn't make sense at the moment but the parole office hiring one of his parolees to steal a stamp from his brother sound easy enough but the fact he was high on weed didn't help as he went to the wrong house and killed the old guy and the parole office's girlfriends plan to drop the air-con-unit on him I thought was impossible but the direct hit was surprising
