What is great about this show is it exactly captures the weirdness of the Fargo movie perfectly. I watched 15 minutes and knew this one was a keeper. By the end of the first season it had easily become one of my favorite shows. Season 2 was not quite the level of season one, but this is still one of the most brilliant shows on TV. The writing is phenomenal.
