It’s finally that beautiful time of the year when my favourite TV Shows start up again. Nothing has disappointed me so far, but the one show I was most anxious to see was Fargo. After reading all the hype before it’s Season 1 premiere and realising Martin Freeman was the lead, and well into a Sherlock withdrawal, I decided it was about time I found out what Fargo even was. I started with the movie, which I loved, and so once the show aired, I was a terribly knitted sweater away from being a super fan. Here's my thoughts on Season 1.
I looked up absolutely nothing beforehand so that I could go into Season 2 blind. I made myself a cuppa, cuddled up on the sofa with my cat Loki (the one who got lost, remember?) and got started! My mind can’t quite put together any kind of formal review, but here are my scattered thoughts, and beware of cryptic spoilers!
This is the best opening to anything, ever.
Every movie and show should start like this.
I forgot how snowy Minnesota is.
It’s been 5 whole minutes without an ‘oh yah?’, I don’t know how to feel about that.
What kind of children’s book is this?!
He doesn’t even know!
Ejaculate is a funny word though. Hahaha.
I’m sure there was a hint of a ‘yah’ there.
That posh fancy lady has a giant milkshake. I’m glad adults are still allowed to like milkshakes.
*some sort of joke about bringing boys to the yard*
This isn’t going to end well.
Watch that knife. Ugh. Please don’t pull it. Ugh!
Run, lady, run! I don’t know where, but run!
What! This woman be crazy! How can she drive away like that?! Can can she see?
Oh duh. You’re cars have the driver on the other side of the car. But still!
Hold on a minute. RON SWANSON?! Nobody warned me Ron f*cking Swanson was in this! Fargo just got 1,000,000 times better.
Your wife is hiding something from you. She’s shady.
Don’t go in there.
Deer my ass!
Oh lordy. That’s messed up.
The episode’s already over?! NooOOooooOooooo!
I never even heard an ‘oh yah’. Sadface!
