This is one of the best, if not the very best, show on television right now. The movie gives a great representation of what you're getting the the show, because they match so well in style. I finally watched season 2, and I love it just as much as season 1. I think the style we're getting more of these days, seasons having their own specific plot, is great for storytelling. American Horror Story does it to, and although they haven't nailed every season, at least you can hop on again next year since it'll be totally different.
The season being set in 1979 makes the story even more entertaining (especially the pop in of Ronald Reagan). This makes the humor better, seeing what people think and how they act back in the day. My favorite character in here is certainly Nick Offerman's. The way he talks so certain of information. They he says he'd never do something he thinks is stupid, but then immediately does it himself. Such a great side character, reminds me of John Goodman in The Big Lebowski.
For the main plot though, Kirsten Dunst is sooooo good. I never thought I'd say that. She rocks her role by making you super annoyed in the start, but super sympathetic later. Then there are the Fargo crime family interactions, the silent but deadly Native American, the Kansas City crime family agent... everybody really. You should see all of the characters, all of the writing, all of the direction, and all of the everything.
