Season 2 of Fargo, my favourite show from last year.

No big names except dunst who looks much hotter with extra fat.
The feeling and original style is redeemed unlike TruedetectiveS2.
Gonna be interesting ride.

I still can`t believe how bad it is, Nic Pizzolatto went from genius to mediocre in just one year.

The Wire was genius, Paul Haggis is a decent director and Oscar Isaac is one of today’s top actors imo. This has a LOT of potential!

Oh yeah, Ben and Kyle both nominated as best supporting and lead actor in Drama, respectively.
Hope Danny/Ben wins, he knocked it out of the park.

The last TV show I saw Kyle Chandler in involved a cat and a newspaper.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

I take it you never watched Friday Night Lights, then.

I always wondered why he didn’t get any good roles after Early Edition. His career stalled for several years after that. Basically until his role in King Kong and then Friday Night Lights…

Absolutely loving Mr Robot at the moment. Been waiting for a decent, (semi) realistic non comicy hacker show forever and this show hits all the spots

Amen to that, Mr Robot is great so far.

I’ve been getting a three-hour sci-fi boost on on Friday nights with three shows: Defiance, Killjoys, and Dark Matter.  They’re mostly space opera with lots of action, but I’m hooked.

I haven’t watched any in the poll as yet.

     

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

TrueDetective season 2 review,

Everything was fucking.
But never mind.

And to wash out bad taste, searched Bron update, and there is a trailer for Season3,

Bodnia aint returning, gonna miss the duo as the closure was expected, but anyway, more Bron with Saga.
