Fargo Season 3 Finale

(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 third season of Fargo opened with two characters who have polar opposite views of the world, and that’s exactly how it ended. The series began with a man who was not Yuri Gurka, but according to another character’s set of rules, he was. He was the killer because the government official wanted him to be. A simple coincidence, a name and address, disrupted or ruined the man’s life, which is nothing new on Noah Hawley‘s series.

Keith Gordon directed this week’s unpredictable finale, which packed a heavy punch. Below, read our review of the Fargo season 3 finale.

Fargo Aporia 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?)

Defeat and disappointment are at the forefront of this week’s episode of Fargo. The most righteous and the most villainous characters on the FX series are thwarted in the second-to-last episode of the season. “Aporia,” as a title, is on the money. Keith Gordon, who also directed the season 3 finale, makes the stakes feel even more personal before the end.

Fargo episode 8

(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?)

Talk about an opening scene. This week’s episode of Fargo, “Who Rules the Land of Denial?” begins with one suspenseful attention grabber. A great opening scene is then followed by the addition of two character who have sense on Fargo: an unknown man and woman who knew just to keep on driving. No questions asked. Things still didn’t work out too well for them, but the world is again cruel and unfair on the FX series – just how V.M. Varga (David Thewlis) likes it.

Fargo The Law of Inevitability 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 blue streak continues on Fargo. Life has never been worse for Sy Feltz (Michael Stuhlbarg), Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor), and maybe Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who’s mysterious and world-weary enough to indicate season 3 of Fargo is far from her first bad time in Minnesota. Noah Hawley‘s FX series experiences the shockwave of last week’s shocking episode in “The Law of Inevitability,” in which Chief Moe Dammick (Shea Whigham) enlightens us on the mashed potato theory and how he proceeds when the sun is out.

Below, check out our latest Fargo review.

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.

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.
