Last night the FX series "Fargo" begun. It was filmed largely in Bemidji, MN and Brainerd, MN; but the landscape is pretty much the same.
It was a bleak vision of human nature, with the fictional Fargo peopled with mousy men, bullies, shrewish wives all talking in a parody of the regional accent.
Moreover, there was too many commercials. There must have been at least a half-hour's worth. That's overkill, but I know those cable channels have to make ends meet somehow.
Anyway, I found it disappointing. And being showed so late (11 P.M.) that it was hard to stay awake after a busy evening.
I will give it another shot; but I hope it picks up.
