Have you been watching the new Fargo TV show? The storyline is different from the movie, but it strikes that rare Coen-Brothers-esque balance of funny and creepy.

As the NYTimes review said: “Fargo finds humor in the stunning ordinariness of Midwestern small towns, where people are uniformly even tempered and mild, bringing Jell-O salads to potlucks and saying ‘aw jeez’ and ‘heck’ when bad things happen. The snow tamps down so much: In Minnesota, even some of the killers have placid miens and pleasant manners.”

It’s really gripping (and on tonight at 10pm, if you’re interested). Alex and I are really into it. What other shows are you watching these days?

P.S. The 100 best written TV series, and binge watching.
