Fargo The Lord of No Mercy Review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

“The Lord of No Mercy” is a more than fitting title for this week’s episode of FargoNoah Hawley‘s FX series got grimmer this week, paying off previous events in an unexpected and tragic fashion. Things are destined to only get worse from here, but the two most recent episodes of Fargo had few laughs to soften some serious blows.

The House of Special Purpose review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

Emmit Stussy’s (Ewan McGregor) neck is currently in the clutches of the big bad English wolf of Fargo season 3, V.M. Varga (David Thewlis). The Parking Lot King has fallen from his comfy throne, and in “The House of Special Purpose,” it looks like he’s helping to bring a few folks down with him. Then again, we could say the same for the entire ensemble on Fargo, who are all working together to help to seal each other’s fate.

Fargo episode 4 review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

This week’s episode of Fargo begins with Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor) worrying about his appearance. By the end of “The Narrow Escape Problem,” how his hair looks is the least of his problems. In episode four of of the third season of Noah Hawley‘s FX series, Emmit, Ray, and Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) dig deeper holes for themselves.

The Law of Non-Contradiction review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

This week’s episode of Fargo is heavy on the melancholy. Ennis Stussy (Scott Hylands) kept quiet and miserable in the first two episodes of season 3…mostly because he’s dead. Even when he was a younger man, he suffered like so many other Fargo characters.

To answer the question “Who is Thaddeus Mobley?” Noah Hawley‘s show pays a trip to where many Coen Brothers’ characters have experienced pain: Los Angeles.

Fargo review 2

We all know by now Fargo is a show in which a lot of mistakes occur. Characters rarely take the higher path on Noah Hawley‘s FX series, which returned this week with some dramatic repercussions following the fantastic premiere. “The Principle of Restricted Choice” shows characters questioning the uneasy choices they’ve already made.

One character whose chi is rock solid in director Michael Uppendahl‘s episode? The enigma, V.M. Varga (David Thewlis). Good luck google searching him.

Fargo extended season 3 trailer

The season 3 premiere of Fargo doesn’t disappoint. After two acclaimed seasons, creator Noah Hawley introduces a new ensemble in an intimate and very contained season 3 premiere. Hawley, who wrote and directed the episode, focuses on a small group at the start: Emmitt and Ray Stussy (Ewan McGregor), Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and to a lesser extent, Police Chief Gloria Burgle (Carrie Coon).

Long before the premiere even concludes, Hawley establishes all of their personalities and troubles. Like the two previous seasons of Fargo, every one of them is compelling enough to star in their own series. And just like the Coen Brothers’ 1996 film, there remains no such thing as small parts in Fargo.

Fargo season 3 reviews

Like the Coen BrothersNoah Hawley tests his characters in all sorts of challenging, horrific, and comedic ways. Sometimes he’ll let them off the hook, but more often than not, nothing comes easy. Especially if you’re a character in Fargo. There’s always going to be some heartbreak and suffering.
