There are some amazing moments in this episode, some I will come back to for a long time to come. But the connective tissue between them left me a bit unsure of what the whole thing was meant to add up to.

Despite an inordinately high degree of difficulty, Fargo didn't just ace its routine, but even managed to stick the landing.

With one final, breathtaking blast, Fargo ends its run Tuesday with a stunner that solidifies its place, not just as the year's best miniseries, but as one of the most satisfying ever made.

Whereas Fargo the movie felt like more of a fable, its televised spawn is a sprawling, allegorical quilt. "Morton's Fork," per its titular namesake, delivers comeuppance without offering easy answers to the series' deeper concerns.

After nine dazzling weeks, Noah Hawley's ingenious adaptation/expansion of the Coen brothers' much-loved movie didn't disappoint.

Fargo ultimately revealed itself to be a refreshing tale of good versus evil. It's a rare thing to find a story this rich and nuanced that also takes a definitive stance about the nature of morality.

"Morton's Fork" was the perfect conclusion to Lester and Lorne's game of cat and mouse.

That was Fargo. This is Fargo. Both are great, defying all logic, and yet pleasing so many.

And for a series that has been fantastically bleak and misanthropic at times, that comes off as an uplifting and rewarding conclusion.

What Fargo offered was neither glorified fan faction nor a generic crime drama masquerading familiar beats under the guise of its prestigious title; rather, it managed to capture the spirit of Joel and Ethan Coen while simultaneously forging its own path.
