Critic reviews for Palindrome

The most pressing impediment to hailing the Fargo Season 2 finale as "great" (let alone comparable to the superb Season 1 kicker) is that most of the action was either already complete or abundantly obvious.

It ends on a note of uplift, where there was every indication we were going to get otherwise.

It's a measure of the quality of the writing and acting that we grew to care so much about these characters over the past 10 weeks.

There was so much to love about the finale of Fargo's second, excellent season.

Fargo Season 2 Episode 10 was a lovely and low-key ending to Fargo Season 2. It provided a great amount of closure on all the major plot points, while refusing the typical narrative tendency to wrap everything up cleanly and as expected.

Story-wise, [Noah] Hawley's fully capable of telling a fleshed-out character-driven story in 10 episodes but as a viewer it's painful to say goodbye to his characters.
