"Fargo" with Billy Bob Thornton looks like it will replace "True Detective", now on hiatus.

I came away disappointed with Fargo. Billy Bob's character is too over the top. Not a very discreet hitman. I wanted to like it, as I love Martin Freeman, but doubt that I'll go back for a second viewing.

The first two episodes of Silicon Valley have been absolute howlers for me, but I have this sneaky suspicion that if I didn't live there it might be only mildly amusing at best. Anybody not in this part of the world that has tried it? What think?

I'm also enjoying it, but possibly a coastal/metro bias at play for me also?

I too have enjoyed Silicon Valley. I wish that they had sub-titles to translate some of what they say into non-Geek speak. I suspect that some of it might be nonsense that the uninitiated assume is for real. Seriously, my daughter now lies in San Francisco so I'm a bit more tuned into what's been going on there than those in the hinterlands.

I'm not fluent in geek, but my take is that everything they say is pretty much spot-on.

Caught the new "Fargo," a series aptly called "No country for old Fargo" by the NYT. It's not only channeling those 2 movies but has a dollop of "Nebraska" and "Osage County" as well. By that I mean there seem to be few civil and intelligent folk in the Coen bro's version of the Mid West. Why is it that having a Canadian accent seems to lower IQ's? gh? So far there are hardly any characters with any definition, they're either bad, stupid, or rude. I assume the central woman (Sheriff deputy) will be the saving grace of the show. I will persevere for now.
