Fargo 4/29/14

Great episode.

How long is this running?

I loved Malvo approaching the blackmailer "could you have picked a smaller closet for us to talk in" (as they were nose to nose in a small dark closet). Malvo's sarcasm and BBT delivery gets me chuckling.

I wonder if more people are upset about the dog getting killed than the people killed?

And the interplay between the policewoman and a) Lester and then later b)the police guy with his daughter was just spot on.

I am loving the dialog on this show, both what they say and how they say it.

Basically, I like everything about the show.

I liked how the fake blood-like substance coming out of the shower wasn't a hallucination, for once.

A 10-episode limited series inspired by the film, will follow an all-new "true crime" story.
great show, perfect pace, and good chemistry among the cast - it's my favorite network series at the moment.

Guess the question is why isn't Malvo more stealthy, he just doesn't give a flying f*ck most times. He can't be thinking to intimidate cops all the time.

So he makes the SuperMarket King think he's crazy and then what, have him give him his money cause its cursed?

Love the Lester character. Life is trying to get a bite out of him at every turn and he just gets out of the way!

I'm not quite sure why her boss is so determined to protect Lester--unless he's just an idiot. It doesn't seem like they are really friends. But Molly is awesome. I also love her Dad.

It's so nice when a series actually meets and even exceeds its hype! Billy Bob should get an Emmy for his performance. The cops daughters helmet hair makes me chuckle every time I see it. Though from the last episode, I'm curious. The Fargo cops home seems more like Brooklyn to me than Minnesota. Does Fargo even have those kind of structures? Is there even a Hasidim community in Fargo? The only place I've ever seen the (ultra annoying when they parade) Mitzvah tanks are in NYC. The high tech office exteriors from the flashback scene last night don't say Fargo to me either, but I've never been.

Once the Grocery King realized that he was showering in blood and let out a scream, Malvo was shown smirking by the van and covering up the empty jugs of pig blood from the butcher shop ... so it wasn't supposed to be fake blood.

I don't see how that could work unless the guy was taking a cold shower. If he was taking a hot shower, then the pig blood would have been only coming in on the cold water line (I don't think sending pig blood through a water heater would work), and would be quite diluted (assuming he was using mostly hot water). But it looked like it was pure pig blood coming out of the shower.

And I am pretty sure I saw steam coming off the water before it shifted to deep red.

I expect the blood would gum up if you ran it through one of those. Then it would clog up the nozzles on the shower head, if it did not clog the pipe upstream.

You're thinking too much, john. Just drink the Koolaid along with the rest of us.

Nobody here has questioned the scenes at the beginning where Malvo was pulling the guy by his necktie all the way from his office to the elevator and down to the parkade without the guy twisting around to stand up at any point, or factoring for the coefficient of friction in dragging along the office floor so effortlessly for Malvo, who is probably 145 lbs. compared to the office guy who would probably be closer to 200 lbs.

You buy and plumb in the "Carrie" pig blood injector from Uncle Fun, of course.

That bastid killed the dog. I want to see him fry. I'm hoping that Lester takes him out.

Lester will be playing those guys a tune on his little brother's violin.
Oh. And Molly and are going to be an Gus Grimly item already.

Greta Grimly's haircut is really cute like Natalie Portman as Mathilda in "Leon: The Professional"

It was a great scene, don't overthink

That scene was supposed to have taken place in St.Paul, MN, which certainly has those types of buildings.

Although St Paul is a much smaller city than Calgary. If you were looking out a window like that, you wouldn't see skyscrapers going off into the distance...you'd see one or two and then smaller buildings.

That's pretty typical when Hollywood does the Twin Cities without actually coming here...most of the cities they use to double for other cities are bigger and more sprawling than Mpls or StP, which both have very compact downtowns.

It was especially noticeable when Revolution had an episode set in Minneapolis (or at least a virtual reality Minneapolis)...the aerial shots were shot here (you could see my condo building in one of them), but the interior shots were filmed in Austin, and you could see a very different-looking city outside the windows.

And I'm not complaining...I understand why they have to do these things. It's just amusing when it's a place that you know well, and the double doesn't really double very well.

My first thought was Uma Thurman's haircut in Pulp Fiction.



I love The Professional. Leon is one of the great movie characters.



Portman is obviously more of an age appropriate comparison than Thurman.

She's from Texas by way of Chicago!

She was having no luck finding work "off stage." There's a LOT of live theater in Chicago. Then the "Fargo" guys saw her audition tape.

Here's an interview with her:
http://voices.suntimes.com/arts-ente.../#.U0xEosemQ9N

She really is very good in the role. I count little things like how she grimaced when facing the sun and cold and showing she loved her old man out there on the lake.

All this is why I'm still finding it incongruous to hear a Minnesota accent coming out of Martin Freeman's mouth.

He didn't look familiar at all to me, and I just watched the second Hobbit movie today. I would never have put that together. Thanks.
