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.

steven spielberg ranked bridge of spies

Sometimes director Steven Spielberg can toil away for years trying to find the perfect combination of elements to tell a story, and other times he’s able to fast-track the entire process from idea to finished product in less than a year. He’s doing the latter with a new film called The Papers (formerly known as The Post): he signed on in March and the movie comes out this December. It tells the true story of the controversial publication of classified documents known as the Pentagon Papers in the early 1970s.

Spielberg had already managed to snag Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep to star, but now he’s assembled a spectacular supporting cast to join his heavy hitters, including actors from Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Arrested DevelopmentFargo, and more. Ain’t no party like a Spielberg party. Read who else has come on board the filmmaker’s Pentagon Papers movie below.

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 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.

According to the early reviews for Fargo season 3, Hawley has created another memorable, hilarious ensemble knee-deep in hot water. Let’s bundle up and explore the cold wasteland of the early Fargo season 3 buzz.

Fargo season 3 commercials

Ewan McGregor as Ray Stussy looks about as down on his luck as a man can get. The less successful brother of the “Parking Lot King” of Minnesota just reeks of desperation, making him right at home in the world of FX’s Fargo. In less than a month’s time, we’ll likely see Ray make some very bad and very foolish decisions that get a lot of people hurt. I can’t wait. For now, let’s watch some new Fargo season 3 teasers.

‘Fargo’ Season 3 Teaser Declares War on Christmas

fargo season 3 teaser

Every article about FX’s Fargo series has to begin with the observation that this series had no right to work as well as it does, so here we go: FX’s Fargo series has no right to work as well as it does and creator/showrunner Noah Hawley can probably be filed away for future reference under “miracle worker.” And because two acclaimed seasons of pitch black comedy, criminal idiocy, and startling violence (not to mention 36 Emmy nominations) are not enough, the show is set to return in just a few months. And the first teaser has arrived.
