    well it's about the Revolutionary War, but it's sort of like "The Americans" on FX if you can compare it to anything

    Wasn't aware of it. I lived in Fargo 4 years, and North Dakota a total of 11. I'll search for it on my satellite box.

    Then you should definitely check it out and tell me what you think since you lived there for some time.


    @tj, sounds good, I'll take a watch!

    OK, did a check on my satellite service. "Fargo" is next on FX this morning at 1:33 AM (actually Fri, 4/25). No other airings are listed. I think I'll pass.

    If you mean the Minnesota accent and general manner of speech, yes. I lived in North Dakota & Minnesota for 11 years. That accent is fading away a bit, like most accents in the US, but it still persists in the northern part of Minnesota especially. Though Minnesotans themselves deny they have such an accent, like the one also used in the movie Fargo.

    (I knew the movie's kidnapped wife, BTW, who was cast from the local Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre, where she also would collect admission tickets and do usher duties! My BF was on the FMCT board, and himself had a small extra role in the movie)

    Thanks to Amira I now have a link to Episode 1, which opens in Bemidji (pronounced beh-midgee), a real town where I once bought a car. For some reason DirecTV puts Fargo on after 1 AM here. I have to think it's not very popular with their audience that they choose to bury it.

    Hopefully, the area has a new gay bar or club, I spent six months in ND on a job in 2001 and during the 9/11 attacks, weekends in Fargo, the I-Beam was the only one, too bad closed, memories, Ingrid, You Promised Me icon_razz.gif
