Billy Bob Thornton was great tonight, and almost human, especially in his scenes with Martin Freeman.

In the end, this is a surprising and sometimes astonishingly cinematic episode that begins to set up the end by pulling the various threads together with a sense of inevitability.

I've liked Fargo all along, but "A Fox, A Rabbit and A Cabbage" marks the episode where I fell in love with the series. What a brilliant hour of television.

The hour moved at a swift pace to move the story forward while causing me anxiety each moment. The anticipation of what horrible event would happen was brilliantly nerve-wracking.

The level of suspense that Noah Hawley's script and Matt Shakman's direction create is almost unbearable, and that tension was palpable and powerful throughout the screening.

A Fox, A Rabbit, And A Cabbage" is yet another example at how expert this series has been at generating tension; there were several scenes throughout where I found myself nearly unable to breathe.
