Kirsten Dunst -- Peggy Blomquist
Patrick Wilson -- State Trooper Lou Solverson
Jesse Plemons -- Ed Blomquist
Jean Smart -- Floyd Gerhardt
and Ted Danson -- Sheriff Hank Larsson

1979 in Lucerne, Minnesota. Molly is six.

Good premiere.

Peggy doesn't seem too bright, no. Her husband Ed, either, though he did pretty well grabbing the pottery tool...

I don't remember exactly, but I think I had the impression that it was just Lou alone raising Molly... I can't pinpoint the 'why', but it didn't feel like a surprise when we saw that Mom was sick here...

I don't think Smart looks THAT different (from how I've seen her the most, recently, on 24, probably...).

Shadowy figure at the end (with Garrett) sounded a lot like Richard Belzer.

No, she's never done any daytime soap work... Best known for Designing Women...

Liking it a lot. Scenes of tremendous tension... The finger on the floor, and...

Yeah, they killed the sheriff early (in #1, even, wasn't it?) last year when he seemed to be set as a 'major character'... but I do expect more than just two episodes with Ted Danson in them...

Still a different level of suspense when Hank MIGHT be killed, where we know Lou cannot be, but... nah, I loved the stuff in the butcher shop. Lou's not even a little bit suspicious, but that doesn't matter at all, of course...

Cowardly cop Ben Schmidt is a Season 1 character... In Duluth in 2006, he's Gus' lieutenant...

Yeah... Can't say I'm rooting FOR anybody in the war... (kinda surprised Garrett got an off-screen and head-in-the-box exit).

Halfway point.

Stupidity and arrogance often walk hand in hand...

I was thrown by not getting to see Peggy and Dodd again in the second half-hour...

So far...

1996 movie takes place mostly in Minneapolis MN in 1987.
2014 first season takes place mostly in Bemidji MN in 2006.
2015 second season takes place mostly in Luverne MN in 1979. (But the Gerhardts' farm is in Fargo ND...)

Didn't read bilki... haven't finished it yet... twenty minutes in last night, and I was too sleepy... Fun to hear Martin Freeman back to voice 'the book'...

Man, those Dakota cops were dumb...

Poor Molly.

Glad Hank is still alive... Hope he stays that way.

Hope Mike Milligan survives... I'd like to see him reunite with future-Lou...

I'm fine with the UFO. Peggy's line was very funny.

Since you were ultimately 'eh' on last year, are you liking this one more, less, about the same, or get-back-to-you-after-the-finale?

I'm 'about the same', but I was more impressed with the accomplishment (wow, they actually made this work) last year (although there is a 'hey, they could do it again, too' factor...), and while I think both casts are pretty amazing, there was something extra 'special' about Thornton and Freeman together...

I liked last year's story better, but I'm loving all the little cinematic flourishes and the soundtrack selections...

The saucer brought it full circle... Peggy hit Rye 'cuz he was frozen in the street, staring at it (or another one), and that was the catalyst for so much of the story...

Yeah. End of the first act of the first episode... The waitress escapes the diner, wounded. Rye goes after her, gets her. He's in the street and sees three blue lights in the horizon... They raise up, fly above him, and fly off. And then he's hit by a car...

Yes/no... The 'This is a true story' title cards that open every episode (and the movie) are a joke.

But Hawley says of the UFOs that they were really a part of the era... Sightings, speculation, Close Encounters in '77... And this story served as an inspiration - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Val_Johnson_incident

Very satisfying finale.

And hey - Hanzee was in Season 1, it turns out... http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-watching/how-the-fargo-finale-revealed-a-hidden-secret-from-season-1... and Mr. Wrench and Mr. Numbers were shown as kids last night...

Longer wait for Season 3... we'll get it in the spring of 2017.

It'll take place in 2010, four years after Season 1. New cast of regulars, but we may see people we already know...

It was pretty clear after #9 that #10 would be mostly denouement... I didn't need to see Hanzee take out another block of people to make the massacre a bigger one...

Hank surviving was good.
Betsy surviving (a little longer, anyway...) was good.

It was a happy ending for the good guys.

And two of the more interesting bad guys 'got away'... but Mike isn't happy with his promotion... and Hanzee will be killed by Lorne Malvo in 27 years.

They didn't say exactly, but it was said that Molly was mostly raised by just her father, so we know she was young...

The cancer will win, but I was glad it didn't before we left them here...

Cool. Whatever she was going to do next, she was going to be 'the girl that got her big break on Fargo'... but to stick with the same creator and network - that's good for all of them...

I was young, but this run of New Mutants that introduced Xavier's son was a favorite, especially for all that glorious and weird Bill Sienkiewicz art...
