THIS IS A TRUE STORY. The events depicted took place in Minnesota in 2006. At the request of the survivors, the names have been changed. Out of respect for the dead, the rest has been told exactly as it occurred.
I hadn’t seen this yet and with the announcement of season 2 and the flood of Emmy nominations, it felt necessary to make one. (Use it as a bartering tool to get your friends to watch this show.)
Plot synopsis: A drifter named Lorne Malvo arrives in small-town Minnesota and influences the population with his malice and violence, including put-upon insurance salesman Lester Nygaard. (IMDB)
Starring: Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk.

The original 1996 film, Fargo:
Plot Synopsis: Jerry Lundegaard’s inept crime falls apart due to his and his henchmen’s bungling and the persistent police work of the quite pregnant Marge Gunderson.
Starring: William H. Macy, Francis McDormand, Steve Buscemi, Peter Stormare.

(Really, I can’t recommend this show (and, obviously, the movie it’s inspired by) highly enough. One tip I have though is watch the second episode before making an executive decision on whether or not to continue, because while the first episode is very, very good I found that it was easier to walk away from the show having only seen the pilot, but once I got through episode 2 I couldn’t put it down.
If you like crime shows, or Coen Brothers’ films (there are homages to not only Fargo, but Burn After Reading and No Country For Old Men) there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy this. It’s a self-contained story and it’s a crime show that isn’t trying too hard to be dark or gritty, which makes it all the more enjoyable.)
