Of course his most famous role was Tim from the original Office.

Do houses in Minnesota or North Dakota really have plastic flap doggie doors? My heating bill is high enough in Michigan with a solid door. I can't imagine having to heat a house with a four foot hole in the door.

Perhaps they could install a miniature revolving door.

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.
Yep. I find the same thing with The Good Wife, when they do street scenes that are so obviously NYC to me. But since I'm from the area, I recognize it, but someone in Duluth probably wouldn't.

This show is really becoming must see for me. It's up there with Mad Men and GoT as shows I can't wait to watch each week. I love how they throw in just little bits of inconsequential dialogue when the characters are talking, kind of out of the blue. It gives off that Coen Bros. feel. I think they've captured it well. I also love that the female cop's name is SOLVE-rson. That's like the perfect cop name for this series

Mine does. I specifically got the "plastic flap" doogie door because it's the absolute best at insulation.

I just last week replaced the worn out flaps (for $100+)

The only thing I don't like about this show is that there are only 7 more to go and it's a one and done season.

Alison was talking "if they get renewed" so we might look for another chapter.

Methinks that they can wrap up one saga and start a new one - vaguely related - in a new season, sorta like "Justified." They can follow Chief Molly or the crew actually in Fargo with some other cops.

Yes I suppose it could continue with some new talent and some recurring characters. If the writing and acting remain top notch I'm all in for another season.

I believe they've said that it's a True Detective-style show, where each season would be an independent story.

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,

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.

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)...
