Critic Consensus: In a strategic move, "Loplop" takes a comedic downshift in order to gun the engine for the last two episodes of Fargo's second season.

Critic reviews for Loplop
"Loplop" marked an eventful, streamlined hour-plus of television, marked with perfectly-placed moments of levity that helped break up some truly tense scenes.
When you want to enumerate the many, many qualities that made "Loplop," the eighth episode of Fargo's second season, so goddamn good, you may as well start at the ending.
It was as good as any television-viewing experience could possibly get.
I loved this near-bottleneck episode, but we only have two more episodes left, you guys! Just like the sugar swirling in Mike's coffee last episode, the stories and characters are all circling around each other, and we're so ready for this epic massacre.
At this stage of this wildly entertaining game, I should probably give up guessing what's coming next and just enjoy it.
