Season 1 was entertaining stuff with a lot of great ideas. Of course too long, like nearly every TV series, but overall it worked very well. And Bibo Thornton in a clever variation of Anton Chigurh was amazing. 8/10

Season 2 was exactly that but 10 times better.

2016 is the year where a TV show remake of a great film ended up being better than said film and where DJ implicitly admitted he was just too old to get what is going on around him.

But it is not a remake, but a variation of certain situations and characters and a certain atmosphere. It is inspired by the film, but not a copy.

More precisely, it's inspired by most Coen brothers movies (especially season 1 since season 2 kind of took off and stole from - on the top of my mind - QT, Andrew Dominik and McDonagh) and takes place in the same universe as the movie.

It's also the year in which n_l implicitly admitted he has less to offer the world of critical discourse than stanton.

Sad sad year.

We had better discussions on this board when D&D wasn't around.

What has hurt us most is the loss of Groggy.

What was taken directly from another Coen film, apart from the Bibo Thornton guy?

How can that happen? Is the future really that dark?

I have no precise memory but I remember experiencing "wait... this is a variation of scene X or character Y from Coen bros movie Z" a couple of times per episode during the whole season, and pretty much never during season 2.
