Fargo Season Two Preview | Looking Back Before Moving Forward

Listen to the Podcast

Listen to the podcast:

Get ready for some highly irregular (meaning odd) podcasting about FARGO, from the trio who broke down TRUE DETECTIVE season two: Josh Wigler (@roundhoward), Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) and Jeremiah Panhorst (@jpanhorst), together again for a very different kind of crime show.

Before season two of FARGO premieres on Monday (October 12), let’s look back one last time at the first season and the Coen Brothers’ original movie that started it all. In their first podcast of the season, Josh, Antonio and Jeremiah will talk all things Lorne Malvo, Lester Nygaard and Molly Solverson, and turn their attention toward the future of the series — which just so happens to be a trip back in time to 1979 in Sioux Falls.

    Woohoo. A Fargo podcast! My favorite movie and the tv show didn’t disappoint. How do you guys feel they did adapting the film to a tv show? It’s a different story set about 20 years later, with all new characters. A similar tone and look though. Many of the characters have similar traits – most obviously both have wise female cops who wipe the floor with their male counterparts.

    I think the Pilot episode was one of the best pilot episodes I have scene! Would you agree?

    Season 2 is a reboot much like True Detective 2, except it’s a prequel to Season 1. Sadly it won’t have Allison Tolman’s awesomeness and Billy Bob won’t be there. What do you think it can do to succeed where True Detective 2 failed?

    So in comparison to the movie, I feel like the series is much more literary. I’m thinking specifically of the story Malvo tells in the first episode about the crocodile and Key and Peele’s conversation on the fox, the rabbit, and the cabbage. Do you guys like this shift to more highbrow writing, and does it differ the two products too much?

    So glad you gonna recap the second season. The first season was probably the best TV show I saw. I rewatch it again two weeks ago, and still enjoyed it very much, even though I knew how it would end.

    I am really excited to see that you guys are recapping Fargo and am really enjoying this season 1 review/ season 2 preview.
    Can you please discuss/expound on some of the parables that were mentioned in season 1 and how they relate to the story as a whole? You touched on the “predator” parable a bit but I’m really interested in the others like the departing train/ dropped glove parable and the rabbit, fox, cabbage riddle etc.

    I really love your insight and love that you guys have the same taste in TV shows as me for the most part.

    Enjoyed this little recap. What a fantastic season this was. So far, the second has been very enjoyable, but I don’t think it’s reaching that this first season set. At least not yet.
