Various chronicles of deception, intrigue and murder in and around frozen Minnesota. Yet all of these tales mysteriously lead back one way or another to Fargo, ND. (53 mins.)
“ Best series of the season!

Fantastic storyline, great cast and a very intriguing dark sense of humor. Every episode is special.

Update: although it is designed as 'limited series' they renewed "Fargo" for a 2nd season, with a new storyline and other characters. ” - boobtrash

Centers on two toxic, self-destructive people who fall in love and attempt a relationship. (30 mins.)
“ Very simple plot, short episodes (21 min.) and a tiny cast, but a great sense of humor! Refreshing.

(Don't get scared off by its poster/title which seem like teenage-tv) ” - boobtrash
 
5.
Murder in the First (2014 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A single murder case is dissected from the committing of the crime through to the investigation, arrest and trial. (42 mins.)
“ Just like "The Divide" (2014 series) we follow a crime investigation throughout the season/series.

The development of this story takes more of it's time and is more focused on dialogues than on drama. The cast's performances are outstanding! ” - boobtrash
 
6.
Extant (2014 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
An astronaut struggles to learn how she became pregnant while on a 13-month-long solo space mission. (42 mins.)

7.
Satisfaction (2014 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A husband begins tracking his wife's extra-marital affair with a male escort. (44 mins.)
“ ...or how to cheat on your wife and get away with it.

Other than that i enjoy the way it is filmed. They take the time for details and to translate a certain state of mind, more like a movie than a show where everything hàs to be told in one episode. ” - boobtrash
 
8.
The Lottery (2014 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
Set in a world destined for extinction as women have stopped having children. When remarkably 100 embryos are successfully fertilized, a national lottery is held to decide the surrogates. (40 mins.)
“ This lottery is the worst idea ever but it has a smooth development, despite of a few poor characters. Its nationalistic (american) repetitive dialogues and speeches - propaganda really - bothered me a lot though. The United States of America are depicted as the unique intelligent centre of the world, while the rest of the world is either an invader or plain dumb. ” - boobtrash
 
9.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X

“ Different interesting episodes on our brain and a fairly good cast but i am not able to watch them all at once. There is the cheesy jazz-music spoiling the scenes and some very cliché events/dialogues which makes the show look cheap from time to time.

Update: show cancelled after season 1 ” - boobtrash

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X

15.
Finding Carter (2014 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
A teenager finds out she was abducted as a toddler and returns to her biological family. (42 mins.)
