2015: Sheldon’s Favorite Fifteen: Cable/Streaming

With the proliferation of television programming it seems like a good time to split my annual list of favorite shows in three. Let’s face it, most network television works within some pretty specific limitations while cable gets to ignore most of them  the result being two different types of programming that probably should no longer be compared by the same criteria (other than whether they’re good enough – that will always apply). And then there’s genre – sci-fi, fantasy, horror and comic book shows – to further complicate things.

It’s been a bumper year for television on both platforms and in all genres, so bear in mind that these are my favorites – your mileage may (and probably will) differ.

Fargo was one of the most unexpected successes of the 2014 season – but once it became apparent that it delivered the kind of Minnesota not-so-nice as the Coen Brothers’ film, the only question that remained was this: could series creator Noah Hawley do it again.

On Tuesday, October 12th (10/9C) we will learn the answer to that question – but the day before, we can experience the unique first season on FXM beginning at 2pm (1C). For details, follow the jump.

Two Men Talking Trailer: Fargo Season Two!

The first full-length trailer for Fargo has been released. Besides the return of ‘Minnesota nice’ there’s a bit of swamp in the air, or, at least, swamp rock – the music in the background as the credits begin to roll is Dr. John’s Right Place (Wrong Time) and it’s probably not a coincidence, eh?

Fargo: Season Two features another all-star cast that includes: Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, Jeffrey Donovan, Jean Smart, Jesse Plemons, Patrick Wilson, Kieran Culkin, Brad Garrett, and Bokeem Woodbine – and returns to FX in October. Check out the trailer after the jump.
