Fargo TV Series

Just watched the season 3 finale it was meh I didn't really enjoy this season as much as the first two but it did have it's moments.

 

This could also be the final season of Fargo unless Noah Hawley has an idea for Season 4. I'd be fine if he ended it here though and didn't try to milk it.

Yeah, this season was very lukewarm compared to the previous two. It was a weird season and not in a typical Fargo fashion. Just the way that it was structured rubbed me the wrong way. Characters and their motives didn't feel very fleshed out and the season was really slow paced. Then there was that flashback episode that didn't matter one bit. The entire season was kind of hazy in a way, like it was a 10 episode dream sequence. It's still a fun show and I'd like to see another season.

Just halfway through season 2. Really enjoying it. I started it when it released but got distracted with other shows.

 

Season 2 has a flawless 100% critic's rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Hope season 3 is as good but bit worried after The Yokels post ^

I do also think that season 3 was the weakest one, but it was still really good. A lot of the scenes are fantastic on their own and all the actors were great. It's just the overall story that felt kinda unsatisfying.

Yup, season 3 was underwhelming, they seem to have run out of ideas and a lot of stuff was rehashed from the last series, strange how similar to Twin Peaks its becoming ,without the bizarre genius of Lynch of course.....Think the Cohen bros are very over rated now...

I need to get on Fargo again. Dropped off somewhere in season 2. Not sure why, was loving it. 

 

Season 4's premise/backdrop sounds awesome.. (taken from the link above)

 

"At the end of two great American migrations — that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the US at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York, Chicago — and African Americans who left the south in great numbers to escape Jim Crow and moved to those same cities — you saw a collision of outsiders, all fighting for a piece of the American dream."

With it being set in Kansas city there are probably going to be a lot of connections to Season 2.

The second season of Fargo is probably my favorite season of any series. Ever. Really looking forward to the fourth season, even though I found the third to be slightly sub par - didn't have as good a flow as the first two seasons.

 

One thing bothers me from the linked article, though...

 

Quote

FX's Fargo is tapping one of its biggest names yet for its fourth season.

Biggest names yet? Chris Rock? Bigger than Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton and Ewan McGregor? Not in the acting business, surely. That being said, I'm mildly intrigued to see what he can do in this sort of setting.

I agree with that excerpt since Chris Rock got his name out before any of them did when he killed it on SNL in the 90s. Freeman, Billy Bob and McGregor took until early naughties to reach proper recognition. I wouldn't at all be surprised if Rock's net-worth was all theirs put together.

 

The prior actors are generally more versatile in the roles they pick so I'm interested to see if we get another True Detective's McConaughey with Chris Rock completely subverting expectations.

Just finally finishing Season 2, lol. I dragged that out. I'm thinking Season 2 of Fargo could be one of the best seasons of anything I've ever watched. I rank it up there with my favourites, The Sopranos, The Wire and Boardwalk Empire. 

 

I'm just amazed how they nailed doing such perfect drama mixed with those dark, comical elements and occasional violence. The comedy never undermines the drama which is a problem to me, in some films/TV where added humour completely destroys any connection I was feeling to the drama of a situation - mostly get this in superhero films. 

 

I understand people aren't as keen on Season 3 but I'll continue on. Season's 1 and 2 are almost flawless though and I'll definitely revisit them in 3 or 5 years.

Started Season 3, finally. I heard mixed things about season 3 but I'm absolutely loving it so far. I'm only 2 episodes in but I love the premise. Michael Stuhlbarg, the actor who plays Arnold Rothstein in Boardwalk Empire is great. You can really see his range as an actor. He's quickly becoming one of my favourite actors.

And McGregor, I have to say I was skeptical at first, but I think it's really working. I'm gaining more respect for him as an actor.

Quoting an old post, I know, but I agree with this. If Season 1 was awesome, S2 just knocked it out of the park. Not to mention, the soundtrack was bloody brilliant as well. There are very few shows that come to mind where I've went specifically in search of their soundtrack after the end.

 

S3 is well acted and shot but I felt the story lacked some of the grippy-ness of S1 and S2. It definitely didn't leave as much of a lasting impression on me as S1/S2. Looking forward to S4 (next year if I'm not wrong?) and hoping it turns out to be as good as S2.

Soo many good moments in S2.

That trailer isn't available in my country, so re-posting for anyone else that has the same issue. 

 

 

Edit: Finally finished season 3. Although some moments were a bit miss, overall I think it was superb. And like Season 2, the final 3 episodes really ramped up to just great viewing. If I learned anything from Fargo it's that it's always unpredictable for me. I think that's the beauty. I get the feeling I'm watching something very original. 

 

Loved the Nikki Swango character as well as the bother's Stussy. Ultimately for Emmet, I think the whole thing was tragic for him. Varga was terrifying. Such a great antagonist. Loved the whole purgatory scene in the bowling alley. In fact, like Season 2's UFO and Season 3's purgatory scene - the supernatural element of Fargo is so minuscule that it doesn't ruin good drama but it serves as a nice reminder that although purgatory and God is supernatural and there's no evidence for either of them to exist, it still dictates how people live their lives in the real world. And one of Fargo's biggest themes is actions and consequences and both UFO and the purgatory scenes have very real consequences to the outcome of the story. So whether or not the plausibility of anything of the likes (purgatory for example) to come in to play in real life, what's not to say it doesn't count, because people will sill be driven in the real world to do things based on religion or a God.

Internationally it'll be on Netflix I'm assuming. Over here it'll be on Hulu since Disney owns FX and hulu.

Oooh!  I really liked season 3. :D Pity you didn't like it. Probably not as good as Season 2. But great, nonetheless!

 

I love that Fargo has become this thing from being small-time bumbling crooks in the original film to being about crime-families. I love Jason Schwartzman after watching Bored To Death and Darjeeling Limited. I'm looking forward to him in season 4.

I finished watching season 3 for the first time recently and do agree that the show has been getting gradually worse with every season. The first one is a classic, the second one is good and the third one is just ok. Varga anchors the whole season all by himself imo. A very unique, unorthodox character played by an absolute master of his craft; other than that, however, the season is easily skippable. Hopefully, season 4 will be able to surprise us.
