What you may need to know:
1. State Trooper Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson) investigates a triple homicide in Sioux Falls, Minnesota in 1979.
2. This is the same case mentioned by Lou Solverson (Keith Carradine) in season 1. Meta.
3. In addition to a stellar cast (Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, Meth Damon), season 2 also has an organised crime syndicate, UFOs and Bruce Campbell as Ronald Reagan. Well, okay then.
4. No Lorne Malvo though. Sadface.
5. In terms of murders per capita, Fargo has to be up there with Midsomer. Or Cabot Cove.
6. That story about Prince appearing in the movie? Not true.
7. Broadsheet prognosis: Even better than the first season.
Release Date: October 19 (Channel 4).
