Critic Reviews for Who Shaves the Barber?

As for everything else, "Who Shaves The Barber?" doesn't hold together as well as the last two episodes, but it does have some terrific scenes in it.

"Who Shaves the Barber?" exemplifies Fargo's frequent misfires with black comedy.

As always, tonight's episode was fat with menace, humor, and evocative character evolutions.

I loved how that scene was filmed. Whether the decision was made in order to save money or for creative reasons, it worked out well.

It's a episode of extremes - good and evil, small emotional moments and big actions - and another terrific installment in what continues to be a great series. I look forward to seeing what's coming next.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's very funny appearance as Agent Budge and Agent... demonstrate how unaware those in a position of authority are when it comes to everything that is and has transpired with regard to Malvo and Lester.

There's a delightful maliciousness that Martin Freeman is bringing to his performance, clearly fully embracing Lester's dark side has been creatively freeing.
