Two things I'm tired of hearing:
1. Fargo is the best show on TV. Really? Have you seen every other TV show currently running? Does this include Netflix series that were released this fall? Amazon streaming? Because I'm here to tell you that if you watched every other show, you'd have to agree that there's a lot of quality TV today. And also "Fargo" is the best show on TV.
2. They keep getting Fargo wrong. I know, it's a small point. But last night's ep had some actual Fargo. Here's the shot of the Police Station:
Well, well. There are four buildings in the background. Three of them are Fargo buildings. They don't fit together like that. Take the buildings on the left:
The tall structure is the Radisson; the short building, shorn of its recently added crown, is the Gate City Savings. In real life, they look like this.
Then there's this:
It's the old First National Bank, seen from Main Avenue looking north. From that perspective the other buildings would be on the right, not the left.
They just made up the tall tower in the background. But it's better than passing off some Canadian town as Fargo; that's a start.
As for the Pearl Hotel, it's in Calgary:
As for the daughter who was taken from the motel and driven into the woods, she's not dead. She crawled under a Dumpster.
