Okay. I haven't watched it, but this fourth season looks interesting. Is each season contingent on knowing the previous one? Or can I just start with the 4th season?

They are stand alone seasons but their are hints about some characters that span seasons.  There is also a bit of character development that is implied.  What you need to know showed up in the Fargo movie so you need to know 1) there will be cops that seem a bit slow but determined, 2) there are local yokels that will be taken advantage of.  3) There are nasty greedy yokels. 4) There are some very nasty greedy people.

The inter season character development will most likely be abound "the KC mob tied to take over up north and things went bad" and I would expect the small town sherif will be related to a KC cop in the new season.

They're related, but later seasons don't spoil the earlier ones.  They occur in the same world, but the plots aren't so inter-woven that you'll miss anything critical by watching fourth season first.

If you have the time, watch them all.  Great show.

Sort of like "American Horror Story", before "Cult".

Good. I've watched every minute of American Horror Story.

I'll watch tomorrow. Reality spoiler alert: the top crime family in KC was Defenbaugh until the mid-late 90s. They then apparently went legit.

They still run waste disposal and the largest landfill in KC.

great series. Like others said, no need to watch other seasons first. Each season its own thing. It jumps around in time. First season is set in 2006, season 2 in 79, and season 3 in 2010. First two are more connected. Season 2 takes two characters from s1 and has a story from when they were younger.

It helps to see previous first, but not 100% required. The series is amazing. Should you watch them? You betcha.

Carrie Coon was amazing, btw. I've always liked her work.

I love this farking show. This season so far seems even more steeped in certain Coen goodness. The nurse is truly creepy.
