News & Interviews for Fargo: Season 2
By giving us a wide array of characters who's brutality and venality are covered with just the right amount of Minnesota nice, "Fargo" shows us all just how a modern TV anthology is supposed to work.
The most important thing about what's before us is that Fargo remains a risk-taker.
Fargo revels in presenting ordinary folk with extraordinary problems, in stripping away their everyday guises and peering long and hard at their dark potential. That it can do this through adaptations of true stories makes it all the more jaw-dropping.
The cast is excellent, the plot-lines are richer and more neatly interwoven, and the alternating portions of whimsy and menace are served up with extraordinary panache.
Despite its endlessly flat landscape, FX's Fargo is elevated by the most spellbinding direction of any drama currently on TV. Season 2 achieves new heights, thanks to writer-director Noah Hawley.
The dialogue in season two of Fargo might be even sharper than season one.
An exciting take on family affairs and mobsters, in the Fargo stage of tradition, violence, and snow. [Full review in Spanish].
Hawley's reinvention of the classic Coen brothers flick...feels like a terrifying new burlesque where endearing townsfolk and pitiful town fools, honest cops and underhand businessmen, petty criminals and unstoppable killers all clash like mice in a maze.
The second season has maintained the high bar of the first and the film. With memorable characters like those ordinary types caught in the spiral of violence. [Full Review in Spanish]
As a whole, this year's ensemble provides an humorous and dark array of characters that, together, help fill the holes of Hawley's strung out script.
It's weird and wonderful and elegantly done. Expect lots of snow, blood and great dark humour.
Audience Reviews for Fargo: Season 2
4d agoUtterly frustrating. Excellent acting stymied by ludicrous character choices and - if you can believe it - aliens. Overrated scarcely covers it.
6d agoOne of the best seasons of any show ever?
May 02, 2021Considering season 1 was a 5 star rating for me, this season is really disappointing. I am struggling to get through it. Simply put, Fargo Season 2 just tries way, way, way too hard that. It is way over-styled, over-thought, over-written and over-acted (because of the silly writing of the characters). It's as if a newly graduated film student makes a movie and mixes ALL their ideas and ALL their most favourite aspects from ALL their favourite movies into their first film. [SPOILER ALERT]. There is so much unnecessary material here that goes nowhere: needless Ronald Regan scenes--actually more that one! References to UFOs; the introduction of an annoying narrator FOR NO REASON near the end! Lots of time spent on irrelevant and unlikeable characters. Switching of cinematic styles and devices throughout. And MOST annoying of all--constant use of split screens for NO REASON! Oi! Split screens yank you out of the escapism to remind you you are watching a movie. All these desperate attempts to impress come off as complete affectations. I mean there is actually a scene where two characters sitting beside each other in a car are split-screened... with each other! The premise of the ENTIRE season makes absolutely ZERO sense-- a regular, normal woman accidentally hits a man with her car, so she and her regular normal husband obviously kill the man, chop him up into pieces and kidnap and murder along the way as they try to cover it up. It's way over-stylised. The music is annoying. And every chance they get the writers put in a reference to the era, in case you forgot since the last time they did it 30 second previous. This isn't Fargo; this is trying to be Fargo plus about 10 other things, including Kill Bill. Season 2 crosses the line and becomes silly. The treatment of the characters comes off as arrogantly urban and mean-spirited; they aren't just quirky, but feels like we are invited invited to make fun of them. Fargo Season 1 and the film skated that line so well; but season 2 is tedious and too clever by half.
Apr 06, 2021There have been few better limited series of television through time than Fargo Season two. An A list cast, new storylines, colorful production design and cinematography lead to a flawless season of television.
Mar 19, 2021WAY too much Peggy. And not sure about the flying saucer.
Feb 27, 2021Retains the same vibe and generally strong style from season one. There are more major characters and there's more general tension and unpredictability. The characters differ a lot in personality, there is both heart and cold-bloodedness at play. In short: bigger and better.
Feb 27, 2021One of the best seasons of television you'll ever watch.
Dec 30, 2020Another solid season for Fargo. Every moment is dark, full of colorful personalities, very dark humor and sheet load of keeling's, superb!
Dec 22, 2020It started off so incredibly stupidly I could scarcely believe what I was seeing. Many sharks were jumped like ten times in the first fifteen minutes. I was aghast after season one, with Billy Bob holding it down expertly. I have never seen such a horrible turn in any piece of entertainment in my life. There is no one here to hold anything down. Forever not a fan after halfway through the first episode. Pandering, terrible... sorry, these are weak to describe how bad this is.
Dec 01, 2020Even better than the excellent first season, the story line here was riveting. There's another stellar cast giving us knockout performances, led by Woodbine, Wilson, Plemons, the great Jean Smart, Danson, and Durst (who just keeps getting better). Not to forget the work of Offerman and Culkin who do not fail in giving life to such cool figures as Karl and Rye. Fascinating story, riveting and funny dialogue, and great pacing- Ooh, and Rachel Keller is just smoldering. 4.5 stars
