    I haven't watched Fargo, regardless of the actress, but will now than I know CC is in it.
    Fargo will need to be pretty amazing to beat her performance in The Leftovers.

    My sub-dilemma is Carrie Coon in Leftovers or Nicole Kidman in Big Little Lies

    I checked the set list for the 40th Anniversary Woodstock, which I think has the most material and is in surround, but Jingo is not listed. Thx for the suggestion.

    Carrie is great in Fargo and Nicole is fabulous in Big Little Lies.
    What's the dilemma?

    interesting, but i think shailene woodley is THE star of 'big little lies".

    Dilemma is: which one gets an Emmy?

    I was thinking that as I typed Nicole's name.
    Heck, Reese was decent too but she was saddled with an unlikable character

    All 4 women were terrific. Loved them all. Miss that show too.

    So Carrie Coon was nominated for Fargo.
    Guess I really need to watch it now.

    Carrie Coon was nominated for Fargo, which as you know, is a limited series :rolleyes:. She was actually better in The Leftovers, which was only recognized for Guest Actress Ann Dowd (who, if you've seen her, is a hoot). Fargo is up against Big Little Lies, and that frankly is a tough choice but I think Fargo wins.

    Disappointed that Mary Elizabeth wasn't nominated for supporting.

    If we're comparing this season of "Fargo" to BLL, BLL wins easily. Past seasons of "Fargo", maybe not.

    I guess I could go either way. BLL always seemed to me to be like Desperate Housewives on steroids, but damn if it didn't completely suck me in.

    It certainly had that feel to it (never saw DH) but I don't think your analogy is that far off. I still liked BLL a lot though my favorite characters were more minor players than the major three.

    Adam Scott, Laura Dern, and the psychiatrist, Robin Weigert were mine.

    I forgot about Weigert, but she was terrific. Mine were Scott, Zoë Kravitz, and Dern.

    alexpop Power pop + other bad habits....

    What a amazing series.
    I'd rate season 3 my favorite then 2, followed by season one.

    In a nutshell pure genius.

    Anything currently running that's on this shows level ?

    For dark humor, genius level: Better Call Saul.

    For just pure genius level, currently running: Ozark, Narcos, Mindhunters

    Just finished, genius level: The Leftovers, The Knick

    The Leftovers moved too slow and it was too depressing (IMO)...

    I haven't watched it yet. I've heard that's true in the first season, but it becomes pretty great. I'm thinking about making the plunge. To my eternal shame, I almost gave up on Breaking Bad for those same reasons (2nd season, maybe?).

    I'd rate season one best, then three followed up by two. Season three takes some commitment because it doesn't get involving until the end....and you do have to suspend some belief on the whole Ewan McGregor playing two parts thing.

    Not even kidding, I think season 2 was far-and-away the best of the three seasons. Not even close in my opinion

    That's no "slow." It's called "a measured pace." :agree:
