New Shows Streaming This Week (9/28/20), Including ‘Bless the Harts’ and ‘Fargo’

Fern Siegel

“Fargo” is inspired by the 1996 Coen Brothers movie of the same name, but the TV version has its own ethos each season. In the upcoming season four, two opposing crime families in 1950 Kansas City, Missouri, square off: a black crime syndicate led by Chris Rock, and a Mafia family with Jason Schwartzman as the son of the city’s crime boss.

The show examines cultural identity and immigration. In a lighter vein, the animated “Bless the Harts” posits a Southern family that’s poor in money, but rich in friends and family. Its first season was a bit of a breakout comedy.
