If you're not going to show aliens, it takes more than a few lens flares to properly get the point across. This is where Fargo has truly excelled-it built an atmosphere where the possibility of paranormal to feels real.

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.

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 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]
June 18, 2018
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.

Fargo 2.0 promises to be every bit as fun, surprising and thought-provoking as the original.

It's weird and wonderful and elegantly done. Expect lots of snow, blood and great dark humour.
October 4, 2016
The fingerprints of writer Noah Hawley and director Randall Einhorn​, who worked on the first season, are all over this, and that could explain the smoother transition from season one to season two.

What is most surprising about Season 2 is that it's somehow even better.
June 6, 2016
It's the rarest of feats that the second season of a brilliant television show outdoes the first, but Noah Hawley's Fargo has done just that.

Excruciating, shocking and hilarious, it sends mixed messages to the stomach muscles; I'm tensing and squirming and properly belly-laughing, all at the same time.

Fargo 2.0 wins you over with its terrific performances and a plot that keeps churning and twisting as it reveals curious new angles.
October 16, 2015
Congratulations, Fargo team! It's still incredible. No True Detective disappointment here.
October 16, 2015
Clearly, season one was no fluke. Once again, Fargo is just about the best thing on TV - and that includes streaming.

If for no other reason, you should watch it because it is a completely unique experience.
October 14, 2015
Fargo, the TV show, has more than developed its own identity and is fully capable of standing on its own.

Through the first four episodes, Fargo remains a terrific thriller laced with black humor. Viewers will see where some aspects of the story are heading, but they won't necessarily guess how the show will move its characters from point A to point B.
October 14, 2015
It's drolly funny, it's effectively creepy, it's tightly plotted, it's loaded with beautifully defined characters, and, somehow, with its Midwestern accents and scuzzy diners, it's all peculiarly and specifically American.
October 14, 2015
At one point in the first episode, one of the Kansas City operatives (played by Brad Garrett) somewhat dismissively describes Floyd this way: "She's tough but, you know, a girl." Yes, well, we'd be foolish to underestimate her. Or this show.
