this Fargo thing's only getting bigger
I watched the first episode of Fargo Season 2 a few days ago.
The opening sequence, even before the Waffle Hut section was so dense that I had to rewind and watch it again to overcome a kind of sensory overload.
There's a live version of 'Oh Well' playing across the credits. A made-up mono Reagan movie about a real battle. Or was it?
The modern take on 1970's cinematography. Detailed lighting as snow gently falls.
A confession, I've actually now watched the first episode twice and am really looking forward to episode 2.
I won't divulge any plot here, suffice to say that it is dark, clever and funny in a warped way. Plenty of potential. If you like this sort of thing.
