Did You Know?


Ed Blumquist (Jesse Plemons) tells Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson) the story of Sisyphus, a Greek mythological figure condemned to push a boulder up a hill for eternity. This is not the first time the story of Sisyphus is referenced. The third episode of season 2 is titled Fargo: The Myth of Sisyphus (2015) and in it Noreen, played by Emily Haine (the girl behind the counter in the butcher shop), can be seen reading the book of the same name by Albert Camus. Camus uses the story of Sisyphus in his book to explain the absurdity of life. See more »


Korean War vet Karl Weathers, when being convinced to help negotiate between Bear Gerhardt and Lou Solverson despite being completely drunk, mentions that he once "stared down Chiang Kai-Shek". Chiang Kai-Shek was an anti-communist ally of the United States and fled to Taiwan prior to the start of the Korean War, so it was either a drunken error or one of Karl's tall tales. See more »


Hank Larsson: My question for you is, how come after you hit that fella, you didn't just drive to the hospital or waved down a passin' motorist and ask 'em to call the cops?
Peggy Blumquist: You say it like these things happen in a vacuum. Like it's a test. Check "A" or "B." But it's like... decisions you make in a dream, ya know?

call the Emmy's, we have nominations to make -- and don't dawdle
14 August 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Will be honest -- after the incredible and mind-boggling season 1 (will any fan of the series ever forget Billy Bob Thornton's performance?) I was having some trouble "syncing" to Season 2.

Then along comes this episode and I am gob-smacked.

As a standalone episode, one of the most engrossing TV hours I have ever spent. It just builds and builds and builds. Until you get to the stage where (metaphorically) your wife says she is having a baby and you just give her cab fare because you don't want to miss the ending.

When I was a younger reviewer working for print media (dinosaurs roamed, and politicians occasionally told the truth) I used to handicap the awards shows. This one is a puzzler. There are so many superb performances I am not sure where to start? All in, Nick Offerman as the drunken lawyer whose oratory rises to the occasion will (like Billy Bob from S-1) always remain cemented in memory. The rest of the cast do not hit even one false note, but he is a stand-out.

And Jean Smart, even with limited screen time, continues to give her best performance since the Aileen Wuornos story. I think every family wishes they had someone like her in it.
