Critic Reviews for Fargo: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Fargo: Season 1

  • 3d ago
    Dark, gruesome, hilarious, unsettling -- only Fargo has mastered this modern-day morality medium. Season 1 is by far the best of the 4 seasons thus far. Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton are virtually perfect and steal every scene they are in. Allison Tolman & Colin Hanks are also fantastic. Ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances will always capture our imagination. Fargo season 1 is simply excellent television; one might even compare it with Breaking Bad.

    You are absolutely cheating yourself if you don't watch this . Just super enjoyable and equally as absurd

    Amazing storytelling. A lot of times watching movies, series, you'll be left over with some question marks. This show gives you a lot of question marks, but in the end they all get answered. It's really exciting to watch.
