  1. The aircon scene in Fargo reminded me of that Seinfeld episode with Kramer & the aircon he installed in Jerry’s apartment. I think Fargo is one of the greatest dramas ever produced.

  2. Fargo was excellent last night. McGregor was brilliant in his two roles. Thewlis was menacing in an understated way and I like how he was given bad teeth because, as all American’s “know”, Brits have bad teeth.

    Happy that SBS are continuing with the double-eps. A perfect dose and a good lead-in to The Young Pope.
