Critic reviews for A Muddy Road

Despite all that transpires in 'A Muddy Road,' it still works out to be Molly's breakthrough episode.

I'm a little bit in love with the cold opens of Fargo. So far, each one has been immediately attention-grabbing and haunting.

October 8, 2015 | Rating: 8.7/10 | Full Review…

This was strong episode on the whole, but that closing sequence was just glorious.

October 7, 2015 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

while "A Muddy Road" is another excellent episode of what's been an excellent series so far, it doesn't have that transcendent quality I usually want before going there.

Billy Bob Thornton fans who wanted more of Lorne Malvo's fiendish antics last week should have had fun watching "A Muddy Road."

October 9, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's something immensely refreshing about that-about seeing someone decide to come clean without having to be forced. Much of Fargo is pretty darn cynical about human interaction, but here is a sequence of pure, unadulterated optimism.
