Finally they released this on Netflix UK and Ireland which reminded my ass to get in gear at start watching season 2. Watched the first two episodes, high quality filmmaking again. If anything the show just seems so consistent and is going down as one my my favourite series.
Oh you're in for a wild ride. Season two honestly blows season one out of the water imo, and I love the first season. But yeah, this has easily turned into my favorite show ever after just two seasons. And there are so many little hidden details, some foreshadowing and clear references to the Coen Brothers' films just like in season one that make it even better. Overall, top notch acting, writing, cinematography, direction, production, music, wardrobe, etc. all around.
Also psyched about Ewan McGregor playing dual roles in the next season. I can't wait to see how these guys pull that off.
Excellent. We've pretty similar tastes in a lot of music and TV so, I'll definitely take your word for it dude.
Yeah, I thought the scene in Bud's Meat's were the three of them said 'OK' in quick succession had the editing style and humour of Coen Brothers. Even some of the cinematography at times I think is a direct nod to their style.
Didn't know Ewan McGregor is in the next one.
We always have had familiar interests in terms of entertainment. I remember when you posted Pacific by 808 State on my facebook for my birthday a couple years back lol.
Yeah, the cinematography remains as excellent as it was in the first season, and there are some cool theories about certain shots that you should look into once you've finished season two. I think they said the season was influenced by Miller's Crossing, The Man Who Wasn't There and, of course, Fargo, with a little bit of The Big Lebowski thrown in with Nick Offerman's character resembling Walter. I also found out that the Waffle Hut was also a place in The Ladykillers.
Ewan is playing a dual role as Emmit and Ray Stussy. Here's the official synopsis so far:
"Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, he sees himself as an American success story. His slightly younger brother, on the other hand, is more of a cautionary tale. Balding and pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Now a parole officer, he has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames Emmit for his misfortunes."
Supposed to take place in 2010, which means there'll be more focus on how social media and whatnot effects things in this universe and will be set in St. Cloud, Minnesota. I can't wait to see the shift going from 2006 in year one, 1979 in year two to the beginning of our current decade in year three. Maybe year four will be set in the 1800s or early 20th century.
