Rebecca Bunch seems to have it all. She lives in Manhattan. She’s a law partner. The only things missing are love and happiness, so she chucks it all and moves to West Covina, California, to start a new life and to find her soul-mate, Josh, who dumped her in high school. (This series was originally planned to be a half-hour comedy for the Showtime in the U.S., but when they dropped it, The CW grabbed it and turned it into an hour-long comedy-drama…making several changes along the way. Hopefully, too many cooks haven’t spoiled the broth.)
Fargo – 10 to 11:05pm on FX – 2nd Season Premiere
This anthology series—like American Horror Story—returns with a new premise, delving into the past of season one’s character of Lou Solverson (played then by Keith Carradine). The year is 1979, and Lou (Patrick Wilson) is a recently returned Vietnam vet who investigates a crime involving a local gang and crime syndicate. He is also assigned to protect Republican Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan on his campaign stop in Fargo. Among the stars this season: Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons (Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad), Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett, Kieran Culkin, Adam Arkin and Bruce Campbell as Ronald Reagan. (This was my favourite new series of 2014!)
