Pick of the Day

Fargo, 10.30pm, TG4

The first three seasons of this anthology series influenced by the Coen brothers' film of the same name were great. Fingers crossed this fourth run maintains the high standard.

This new run is set in 1950 Jim Crow Missouri, where an uneasy peace between two Kansas City crime syndicates is threatened by an untimely death.

Chris Rock stars as Loy Cannon, the leader of the African-American crime syndicate Cannon Limited, as well as a businessman trying to get his new idea, the credit card, off the ground.

Our own Jessie Buckley co-stars as nurse Oraetta Mayflower, a Minnesota native with a folksy accent and sunny disposition.

A self-described "Angel of Mercy," Oraetta believes that her purpose on this "earthly realm" is to bring peace and comfort to the patients in her care.

It just mightn't be the kind of peace and comfort they desire.
