I loved Season 1 ( but how could I not with Allie Bob Thornton?). Seasons 2 and 3 were very good, but not up to One. I started Season 4 a few nights ago, and am on episode 4. I'm trying like hell to keep watching, but it just is doing nothing for me. Plot is really not great (or maybe I haven't recognized it yet), and the characters, with a couple of minor exceptions, are listless and forgettable. The setting is Kansas City, MO......quite aways from north Minnesota or North Dakota. One of the central characters is a nurse....quite oddly, she speaks, acts, and sounds like Francrs McDormand's character in the original Fargo movie....is that supposed to be the connection? There are also some minor gross scenes...(not violent, but I don't want to spill the beans) that you have to wonder why they are there. Maybe just to make this series kinda goofy?
Maybe I'm getting old and cranky, but I have no idea why the critics are raving about this.
I'll keep at it, but I don't have my hopes up.

- I agree. I liked the 1st and 2nd season but 3 and 4 were much weaker. Its a shame.... nt - PhilJ 08:36:17 03/26/21 (0)
