Parks and Recreation: another acclaimed Us show without the UK audience it deserves

27 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It took a long time to come here and its fourth season is going out on Dave. But Parks and Recreation’s struggles put it in good company with Seinfeld, Breaking Bad and others

There’s good news for UK fans of the hardest-working local government department in Indiana, as the fourth season of Parks and Recreation is finally set to surface on Dave.

The series took an age to reach British shores, with BBC4 picking up the first seasons at the same time as the penultimate season was airing in the Us. But despite a top-drawer cast, with Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt playing some of the most enjoyable characters in modern sitcom history in a pitch-perfect caricature of small midwestern city life, the show hasn’t really managed to grab the British audience it deserves.

New ‘Fargo’ Trailer Starts With Something Small

22 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s no waffling about the first trailer for FX’s sophomore season of “Fargo”: This is a deal of a crime scene.

The new season of the miniseries is set in 1979 and follows Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson’s cops Lou Solverson and Hank Larsson as they begin to investigate what appears to be a murder at a diner named for the patterned breakfast food. Along the way, they’ll have encounters with a mustache-free and conspiracy-minded character played by Nick Offerman and a formidable foe in the form of a matriarch played by Jean Smart.

The sequence of events will eventually lead to Wilson’s character becoming the diner-owning Lou Solverson whom Keith Carradine portrayed in the miniseries’ first season.

“If you were paying attention in season one, you know we made a lot of references to Sioux Falls, and that was deliberate; that wasn’t an accident, »

Frigid Chaos, Comedy Ensue in 'Fargo' Season Two Trailer

21 July 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The deadpan, morbid humor and ruthless, down-home violence only the vast, frozen Midwest could inspire fills the first official trailer for FX's Fargo, which returns for its second season in October.

Set in Luverne, Minnesota and Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1979, the clip opens with Patrick Wilson, as a younger Lou Solverson (played by Keith Carradine in Season One), and Ted Danson, playing Luverne Sheriff and Lou's father-in-law, Hank Larsson, finding several dead bodies in a diner.

Though their initial inkling is a botched robbery, a local lawyer played by Nick Offerman cracks, »

FX just released the full-length trailer for "Fargo" season 2, a prequel to the first season starring Patrick Wilson as young Lou Solverson, investigating crime in late '70s Minnesota.

No official premiere date yet, but as the trailer says, look for this new chapter in October. »

New ‘Fargo’ Trailer: There’s Blood In The Diner & Welcome To 1979

21 July 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

It's cold, but other than that the new installment of the TV miniseries adaptation of the 1996 Coen brothers movie is very different than last year. For one thing, FX's Fargo has Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett and Kieran Culkin in the Noah Hawley-run show this time round. What is the same as last time, as the trailer above shows, is blood, murder and mystery. In this case,  the story is set in 1979 and has… »

FX’s ‘Fargo’ gets a full trailer for its upcoming second season

21 July 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Among one of the more notable entries in the 2013-2014 television season was the FX series Fargo. Having previously garnered acclaim for shows such as The Shield, Louie, and Justified, the new series on the channel, brought onboard by The Unusuals creator Noah Hawley, also received critical praise during its first season. Interest in the series increased, however, when it was revealed that the second season would change the time period and focus on a nearly new set of characters, as well as a new mystery.

The new season is poised to be set in 1979, with the first season’s cast replaced by Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett, and Bruce Campbell. The season will be set in Sioux Falls, North Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota, and will make its premiere in October. Ahead of the second season’s release, a full trailer has now been released, »

All your favorites have moved to Fargo. Seriously, all your favorite stars from Nick Offerman and Kirsten Dunst to House of Cards' Elizabeth Marvel and Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan are in the new season and this Fargo season two trailer features them all and it will get you mighty excited, hon. The new season follows Patrick Wilson as Lou Solverson, the part played by Keith Carradine in season one, as a freshly returned Vietnam veteran in 1979. How I Met Your Mother's Cristin Milioti is Lou's wife, Betsy, Cheers veteran Ted Danson plays Sheriff Hank Larrson, Designing Women's Jean Smart is Floyd Gerhardt—she seems like a total badass, by the way!—and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Fargo’s Season Two Trailer Is Accentacular

21 July 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In October on FX, Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, Jesse Plemons, Patrick Wilson, Jean Smart, Bokeem Woodbine, Nick Offerman, Cristin Milioti, Brad Garrett, Kieran Culkin, and Bruce Campbell will star in a new season of Fargo, wearing warm clothing and accents. Here is the first full trailer for the 1979-set season. It is soundtracked by Dr. John's "Right Place Wrong Time," which is probably referring to the people who are murdered or are murder-adjacent on the show, but we like to think they are just saying the wrong time is winter.  »

Fargo Season 2 Gets Great And Groovy Full Trailer, Plus Teasers

21 July 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Noah Hawley has his work cut out for him avoiding the sophomore slump with this fall’s second season premiere of Fargo. The Emmy-winning freshman run casts a big shadow, and the creator/writer/showrunner seems to be changing things up in order to set this new string of episodes apart.

For one, Fargo season 2 jumps back in time to 1979, back when Lou Solverson was still a young, handsome officer newly back from war (Patrick Wilson is taking over the role from Keith Carradine). For another, there’s a huge crop of new characters, from the seemingly normal Blomquist couple (Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst) to crime matriarch Floyd Gerhardt (Jean Smart). Already, there’s a huge sense of foreboding hanging over the events of this season – that Sioux Falls massacre mentioned in hushed tones throughout season 1 is expected to factor heavily into the plot.

Parks and Rec Boss Shares Staff's 'Holy S–t!' Reaction to Series' Emmy Nod

16 July 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

For Parks and Recreation showrunner Mike Schur, Thursday’s Emmy nominations were as relaxed as a day at the spa.

After all, he’s been through more nerve-wracking situations — crafting the series finale for his beloved NBC comedy, for example.

“People in America have a real thing about finales,” Schur tells TVLine. “Everyone’s like, ‘What’s going to happen in the finale? Is the finale going to be good or bad?’ And there’s this feeling that if the finale’s bad, then the entire amount of time that you devoted to watching a show over seven years is totally ruined. »

2015 Emmys Nominations: You take the good, you take the bad

16 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In this new Golden Age of TV, where great shows are available in abundance, only no one has time to watch them all — least of all the people who actually work in television, and thus vote for the Emmys — the only way to look at each year's Emmy nominations is to treat them like the theme song from "The Facts of Life." You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both, and there you have this year's Emmy nominees list. So there were pleasant surprises, like Tatiana Maslany finally getting into the lead drama actress field, and "Parks and Recreation" making its way back into the comedy series category for its triumphant final season after only being nominated there once before. But there was also the usual rubber stamping of past nominees(*), like "Downton Abbey," "Homeland" and "House of Cards" taking up three of the seven drama »

2015 Emmy Nominations: Snubs and Surprises

16 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.

This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.

Best Drama Series

The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

Trailer For Fargo Season 2 Arrives

15 July 2015 3:55 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Like True Detective, Fargo's second season will tell a new story with a new cast, rather than stringing out the largely tied-up threads of Season One. This time we're headed back to the '70s for some organised crime, with Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson heading up the cast. To give you a useful primer (and a chocolate glaze), here's a new trailer."The second season is really is about the corporatisation of America. It's the difference between a mom and pop family business and a Walmart," producer Warren Littlefield revealed last month. "It's the Kansas City Mob basically looking to do a hostile takeover of the Gerhard crime family. In the middle, we have a couple, Ed and Peggy Blomquist, and they get caught in the middle of a war between these two crime factions.” Dunst and Plemons are the Blomquists, with Wilson as »

Fargo season 2: longer trailer, full synopsis

14 July 2015 11:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After a few weeks of hints and teases, we've now had a better look at Fargo season 2. See the new trailer and synopsis here...

There's been no shortage of Fargo season 2 teasers, but now we've something a bit more meatier to chew on. The new trailer is slightly longer than the previous snippets, clocking in at around the thirty second mark. 

You can have a look below. If you're wondering why all the characters are different, that's because the new season will re-settle the show in a new time period (namely 1979)...

We also got a new synopsis, which you can read here...

"The all new “true crime” case of Fargo’s new chapter travels back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota, where a young State Police Officer “Lou Solverson” (Wilson), recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang and a major Mob syndicate. »
