An anthology series with a new cast and story, the second season of Fargo is just as action packed and zany but somehow manages to be better than its stellar predecessor.

Minnesota state trooper Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson) and his father-in-law Sheriff Hank Larsson (Ted Danson) investigate three murders inside a diner and the subsequent hit and run of suspect Rye Gerhardt (Kieran Culkin). Ed and Peggy Blumquist (Jesse Plemons & Kirsten Dunst) try to cover up Peggy’s tracks in the crime.

Like the first season and the film, the show is full of quirky humor and no one is better this season than Dunst. Her character is always so set in her ways and Dunst makes her believable and sympathetic.

Jean Smart also makes her mark as the strong matriarch of the Gerhardt family.

Final say: Thoroughly entertaining. ★★★★★
