Mild Spoiler Alert (Its not really a plot spoiler, but for people who don’t want an element of surprise taken away on the show).
If you have not seen the television show Fargo, do yourself a favor and watch it! It is by far the best show on tv right now, and the second season is crazy good!
The last episode, the opening scene is a a guy in a suit in his office talking with a couple at his desk. He’s in a high rise building near the top. There is a mob war going on in the show, but you have no idea who this guy is.
So then you see the window washers rise up to the window in his office in the background on a swing stage. They start washing the windows with a spray bottle and towels (I was thinking, 'damn, why do they always have spray bottles and towels on tv or movies).
The next thing you know the window cleaners bust out AK-47s and just start lighting up the 3 people in the office through the window. Turns out they were mobsters disguised as window cleaners, and this was a mob hit. The just stand there in front of the busted out window for a second and proceed to lower the stage down to the ground.
This was by far the coolest window cleaner scene in any show or movie I’ve seen. If you don’t end up watching the show, you should at least check that scene out!
lol, I know, I’m just trying to start a gun war instead of a soap war. Thought it might be fun. In the 70’s the AR’s would have been cutting edge. They sucked compared to the AK’s but what you gonna do.
Fargo season one was great. Billy Bob Thorton played such a unique bad guy. Was hesitant to start season two because I was afraid it wouldn’t be as good. But I love me some windex scenes! I’ll check it out.
I don’t watch TV, but I thought Fargo was a movie? Did they make a series out of it? I didn’t know there was so much to write about. Maybe it’s something like the 70’s Show I’m guessing… with AK’s and drops.
It’s in the same ‘world’ as the movie. But doesn’t have the Lundergards and all that.
New people, with subtle tie in’s to the movie.
For example: there was a really rich guy, who it turns out ‘found a briefcase filled with money’
(the one Steve Buscemi hid in the snow along that fence, at the end of the movie.)
Picture Fargo as it’s own universe where quirky characters have story lines similar in nature as the original movie/story. Actually, season one does have some tie-ins to the movie’s story but I won’t mention them here as they could be spoilers.
I don’t really watch TV. I’ll sometimes put on some netflix on my apple tv, watch some Bill Burr… catch a laugh. Otherwise I’m spending all of my time working and building my business. It’s like an obsession that no one understands. Most of my TV time is spent on this site, or youtube videos of lions beating up hyenas.
I watched the first 2 episodes of season 2 last night. Pretty good and the writing and acting is consistent with the original Fargo vibe…both movie and season 1. I’ll have to get in deeper before I declare which is the better season tho.
BTW, Fargo is in my top 5 movie pics of all time…maybe even #1 or a close tie with A Clockwork Orange.
