    I'm curious. Has there been any scenes that have taken place in Fargo? I think so far they've all been in Minnesota, mostly Bemidji, plus Duluth and St. Paul. Where was the frozen naked guy kidnapped from? They must have mentioned it when talking about the surveillance video but I missed it.

    Hopefully they do a better job than American Horror Story has done with that.

    Nothing in the Fargo movie took place in Fargo. The TV show at least has the mob being from Fargo.

    Smart of them not to call the movie "Frago", then. ;)

    That would be amazing!

    (Considering that AHS is one of my favorite shows, and a couple of notches above Fargo IMO...)

    What actress plays the wife of the trucking company owner that got killed? She looks familiar but I can't find her character on IMdb.

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    Of course!! I kind of thought it was her but her hair was different and it threw me off. And of course I take a look again at the IMdb and there she is!!!

    Thanks,

    She had that vibe all along which is why she is good for the role. :)

    I wondered why he didn't at least stand up in the elevator.

    I would also hope that, were I ever in that situation, that I would say something to the lunatic dragging my co-worker out by the neck tie.

    Well, Ereth, that's why you don't live in MN!

    If he appeared to be armed, or I thought he might be armed, I would say nothing. But I would quietly call 911 very quickly.

    Of course the coworkers called the police. They just waited until the lunatic was gone. But by the time the police responded, Malvo and necktie guy (soon to be frozen guy) were gone.

    There's a cool Spielberg movie with Sugar Land as a partial setting. The Sugarland Express. It's based on a true story. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072226/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Oh, and as a fellow Texan, you have my deepest sympathy for having to live in the hell hole area known as Houston. :)

    Which is rather pathetic and cowardly. I can easily see not physically confronting a possibly armed man. But being afraid to duck down in a cubicle and quietly call 911 is pathetic.

    Yes, I'm well aware of that movie. It was Spielberg's first theatrical movie (second movie after the made for TV movie "Duel"). "Partial setting" is correct. Not much of it was filmed in the Sugar Land area. And "based on" is an important phrase. The real story was quite different.

    This. Rarely has a recent show consumed 60+ mins so quickly (BB comes to mind)...
