Critic reviews for The Myth Of Sisyphus

Yet it takes a great deal of skill for an actor to switch gears like that while maintaining consistency within the character. Wilson stealthily navigated the transition, adding sufficient confidence to courageous words, making them spark with life.

One of the best things about Fargo is how it works on so many levels simultaneously.

The episode's finest scene came with the showdown between Mike and the Kitchen brothers and Lou.

It's turning out to be hugely enjoyable, the characters are engaging, and while I still think I prefer the first season, I don't really have that much to complain about regarding this one. (And the soundtrack is inspired.)
