Review: 'Fargo' - 'The Gift of the Magi': Morning in America?

9 November 2015 8:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Fargo" coming up just as soon as I find out if Joan Crawford had crabs... "Do you really think we'll get out of this mess we're in?" -Lou After being alluded to throughout the season's first four episodes, Ronald Reagan finally appears in the fleshy form of Bruce Campbell (who's having himself quite the fall, between this and "Ash vs. Evil Dead"). Reagan — even more than most American presidents of the TV age, given his acting background — is difficult to portray as anything but a caricature, but Campbell is able to get across the essence of the man whom many Americans believed could finally pull the country out of the morass it was in from Vietnam, Watergate, gas lines, and Jimmy Carter's comments about our national malaise.

"Fargo" is back for a new season. I sang the praises of the early episodes last week, and I have specific thoughts on the premiere coming up just as soon as I'm the comic in a piece of bubble gum... "But just watch: this thing's only getting bigger." -Karl With sequels, whether in film or in television, there's an understandable belief that bigger is better. You can't just equal what the audience loved last time; you have to top it, which means more of everything they loved, whether characters (note all the superhero movie sequels that start piling on bad guys), plot twists, explosions, or what have you. And with a few exceptions (notably "The Godfather Part II," which is the exception to many laws of entertainment), they grow so busy with individual things that worked last time that they lose the overall core of why the original was so good. »
