    Speaking for myself, I mostly enjoyed all the stuff with Hungarian lady, but I have zero clue what the deal with the big storm was. Assuming that pays off later, maybe?
    I actually deleted it from my dvr around the time the daughter pulled the skirt off her teacher. It was ugly, bleak and it was depressing the **** out of me. I did see when she first came back and he said he was in a relationship, and I though that might have had legs, but I just couldn't subject my soul to any more of his existential loser/the world is a baaaaad place routine.

    Alright so, this summer we so far have:

    Tyrant
    The Strain
    Married
    You're The Worst
    The Bridge

    What do you guys think about Married and You're The Worst?

    And why is none of this going to FXX?

    Finally watched the first episode of Fargo. Just genius. Billy Bob and Bilbo were incredible, the writing and directing were fantastic. Love how they used elements of the movie but changed enough around to make it fresh. Body count a lot higher than I expected, but they needed that last victim so you don't let yourself gloss over the fact that badass Billy Bob and poor pathetic Bilbo are terrible people. Love that Bilbo was inches away from making the very smart move of putting everything on a dead Billy Bob home invader. The accents were there but not too ridiculous. That last scene where Billy Bob just owns Hanks Jr. was riveting.

    A little worried that I spotted a random link on Yahoo for an article about the worst TV finales ever that was apparently inspired by Fargo.

    It really was terrific to the very last. And if Keith Carradine, in real life, isn't one of the nicest most genuine people, I would be disappointed and, at the same time, amazed at how effortlessly he portrays those qualities.

    Not sure what their plan is with FxX. Wilfred going there for final season. So far, everything except 'Sunny has gone there to die. Really wish they had put Louie there. It's a sore spot on an otherwise tremendous record of success.
    EW reviewed the pilot of Tyrant. Said the characters were a little stock, with the American family coming off particularly poorly. But they said towards the end of the hour there are some hints that it may head in interesting directions.
    Married has actually been getting some good praise from people who have gotten to see it.
    The Strain, should be anywhere from good to tremendous and I am not sure about You're the Worst. Looks a little unpleasant.
    Oh, and I saw a banner fro The Bridge s2 on the side of an MTA bus the other day, so that is cool beans.

    I wasn't too crazy about that final episode. Why does he deice to go and kill Billy Bob all of a sudden? Why is he not being investigated instead of getting an award? He's a mailman, for crying out loud, what the hell is his explanation of what he's doing in Malvo's cabin in the first place? Why is he in someone's house shooting an unarmed man in the face and not being charged with first degree murder? I have no idea, not to mention the coincidence of him stopping just in that particular spot was a little too much for my taste. Plus, in my humble opinion, the only reason for Colin Hanks having a career as an actor is his last name. He has two expressions in his acting range, and they're both annoying. Finally, I'm not a huge fan of terribly neat, tidy conclusions. I found the "True Detective" conclusion far more satisfying because it did not solve all the mysteries and left loose ends. I would have loved to see Malvo execute another narrow escape.

    All decent arguments, if anything it was a little too tidy, but I WANTED everyone good to survive. And I WANTED the guilty to pay. So I had no issue with it. Hanks Jr. is a little soft and his one expression is that 'do you smell something?' look on his face. But still, I liked him and was content. He was on that road, I think, because in the earlier episode he did a doubletake while delivering the mail when Malvo passed him by. Weak-ish...but ok. And when judging the overall product, combined with the also odd-ish ending of the source material, I thought it delivered on all counts.
