One really good show starts its third season and another really good show ends its second season tonight.

• In the third-season premiere of "Fargo" (11 p.m., FX) — which tells a completely different story each season — a petty sibling rivalry between two brothers (both played by Ewan McGregor) sets off a string of events that result in murders and mayhem.

I've seen the first two episodes, and "Fargo" is off to a great star. (Restart?)

• And on the second-season finale of "The Expanse" (11 p.m., Syfy): The crew of the Rocinante — have just averted disaster — is faced with an unexpected attack and has to battle to save their ship. Meanwhile Avasarala is in grave danger, and only Bobbie Draper can save her.

And then there's the mysterious happenings on Venus …

The best news about "The Expanse" is that Syfy has renewed the show for a third season. Hurrah!
