Critic Reviews for The Rooster Prince

Derivative, erratic, and occasionally brilliant: how else to describe the whiplash-inducing second episode of FX's Fargo.

There aren't many White Russian Easter eggs to hunt for, but the episode pops with character and conversational detail, especially in the exchanges between Molly and Lester.

The second episode of FX's Fargo gave us another provocative glimpse into Lorne Malvo's fascinatingly depraved psyche, as Detective Solverson must fight the tide of ineptitude to engage in a proper investigation.

There's just something about Fargo. It has an intriguing charm to it that just engrosses the viewer in this unique world of frozen tundra. While it's visually engaging, it's the individual characters' idiosyncrasies that have me hooked.
