Did You Know?


In the conversation with Emmit (Ewan McGregor) in the car, Sy (Michael Stuhlbarg) refers to Ray as a "leptard" ("your leptard brother"). The same insult was used by Lenny (Paul Braunstein) in season one to refer to Mr. Wrench (Russell Harvard), who returns in this episode. See more »


V.M. Varga: When I was a kid, whenever I had a nightmare, my mother would sit at the foot of the bed and say a little rhyme. "There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile and he found a crooked sixpence besides a crooked stile, and he bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse, and they all lived together in a little crooked house."

The Law Of Inevitability

Fargo being critically acclaimed and buzzed at awards shows is actually worth the hype and deserves the respect for its richness in acting, execution, writing and background score department. Fargo breeds power and vulnerability two opposite sides of the coin and walks right in the middle of it attaining a perfect balance between practicality and drama.

Season 03; being nominated in Golden Globes for three awards, is witty and talkative unlike its predecessor that used to express itself more on violent tone whilst this one believes in humiliation, trickery and threats which in account of excellent execution works far better than any of it could ever have. On common terms, it still relies a lot on depiction of it hence on performance and execution on which it doesn't fail and addition to that it; as always, has amazing background score.

The counter argumentative conversations increases as the interrogation begins but when it is in Ewan McGregor's case it is more comic than intense as he fumbles a lot and on David Thewlis is giving some of his best performance of his career.
