    The Season So Far(go) Feels A Lot Like Better Call Saul With A Darker Ring To It! Lots Of Similarities! Do You Feel They Were Inspired by Better Call Saul! I Am Loving This Season! What Would You Say Are The Chances Of The Season 3? If So What Time space Could S3 Be Based In?

    I’m pleasantly surprised with the quality of this season so far;was afraid it might not be up to par like true detective season 2 compared to s1.

    Anyway,what do you think of the delve into the supernatural that they’re hinting at and where do you see that going?

    Fingers and ears and dogs, oh my. Things are heating up for the kind people of Luverne with the singsong voices and quaint expressions. It’s a little Star Warsesque to see young Lou Solverson and know that his wife will eventually succumb to cancer and die. Their preteen daughter will grow up to be Molly Solverson and star in the first season of the series. Really enjoying the new season, lots has happened in only two episodes. Hope to hear the recap and what you guys thought of it.

  • Was that another UFO we saw reflected in the butcher shop windows at the end during the strange Sci-Fi monologue?

  • There once was a man from Luverne,
    His wife killed a man, he did learn,
    he cleaned up the mess
    he had to undress
    and then his clothes he did burn~

    As a Vietnam vet whose father was a WW II vet I would like to add a little additional context here. It is important to remember that both wars were wars of conscription. In fact, Vietnam was the last US war that used draftees. It is very possible that both our main characters were draftees and their outlook on life after war as citizen soldiers would look a lot different than what is commonly accepted today.

    OK, this is weird. I’ve just watched episode 2 again. This time on cables, with hebrew subtitles. Everything was the same, but then, at the end, the music was different. Instead of The Eve of the War, just the usual Fargo music.
    I don’t know what that means, but I’m sure no one in Israel saw that UFO at the end.
