Fargo: season 2 recap/review

Season 1 box art

Season two of Fargo premiered on FX, last season was done just as well as the film and connected to it nicely just when people were wondering how the show was made from the film. If you didn't get a chance to see either, you can click the above image for the show or catch-up on your preferred streaming service.

This season takes place in 1979 and looks at the earlier generation of law enforcement in the Solverson family. If you remember Molly Solverson from season 1 you'll be familiar with the name. That's what makes these stories in the Fargo universe unique. The first season was lightly connected to the film by connecting the money Steve Buscemi's character from the film left in the snow, to a family in the series.

This season is doing it with a family name to introduce a whole new list of characters for season two. The first half hour has enough surprises in it to draw you in for this season, if you're not watching it, you should. Its on pretty late because the violence definitely pushes the limits for TV.
