First appearance of Bear Gerhardt, played by Angus Sampson. See more »


In the Blumquist garage, a tennis ball on a string hanging from the ceiling, used to guide the driver, can be seen when Ed first looks in. The tennis ball is positioned right over the window on the passenger's side of the car, but it's absent in the flashback that first depicts Peggy driving in with the unconscious Rye on her hood. It is later seen again in the next episode when Ed cleans the garage. See more »


Lou Solverson: It's a diner robbery in Minnesota, Karl. Not a presidential assassination.
Karl Weathers: Oh, sure. That's how it starts... with something small like a break-in at the Watergate Hotel. But just watch. This thing's only getting bigger.

A missed start for season 2
8 December 2015 | by lienschellekensSee all my reviews

I don't understand the good reviews this season.

Season 2 has lost everything that made season 1 exceptional.

The meaningful cinematography is almost gone: Conversations just switch between close ups of the person talking. For example, in season one, the meeting between Lester and Malvo: We go from a wide shot, that slowly goes closer as they get to know each other. At the end of the conversation it switches between close ups.

Another example: the soundtrack. In season 1 Lester, Malvo and Number & Wrench have their own soundtrack. You hear their songs in their introduction, or in key moments for the characters. The choice of music helps to explain the scene. I don't see anything like that in season 2.

Lastly. If this is a prequel for season 1, why isn't that explained better? The year is different, and the characters have the same name and profession. That is it. C'est tout. Or am I missing things?

Maybe it's me, maybe there wasn't enough time to work on these episodes. But season 2 is not in any way as good as season 1.
