The golden age of television that has loomed large in American pop culture for a number of years has morphed into the era of Too Much Good TV. How to make sense of it all? The TV Discussion Group, which will meet weekly from January 9 through February 6, is a place where TV obsessives and skeptics gather to dissect one season of a prestige drama. This time out, the group will analyze the intricate plots and deep character development of season one of “Fargo,” much as a book group critiques a novel. “Fargo” the series was descended from the Coen brothers’ award-winning movie of the same name, but it is its own beast – complete with mayhem, romance, dark comedy, a hapless protagonist, heroes to root for and a villain who could make the devil sweat, even in frozen Minnesota.
Ketchum resident Mimi Avins, who covered pop culture in her years as a staff writer for The Los Angeles Times, will lead the discussion. Each session will explore two episodes of the series. The group is free, but advanced registration is requested. To sign up and receive the viewing schedule, please contact Scott Burton at email@example.com or 806-2621.
