The Best Dads on Television This Year Are A Complicated Lot

Gus Grimley, Fargo

Fargo's Gus Grimley and his daughter

I didn't expect to find a great dad in the brutal, cynical first season of Fargo, but there are actually two. Molly Solverson's dad is adorable, diner milkshakes and all. And single dad Gus was a quiet, compelling force throughout the rough Fargo narrative. His daughter was his touchstone, a challenge and a beacon, and viewers are rooting for a happy ending for his little family, if that's possible up there.
