Synopsis: Molly Solverson gets closer to finding out the truth as Lester Nygaard has a close call.
After last week’s nail biting episode, this week’s episode of Fargo took on a more sedate tone. It felt almost like a filler episode, it wasn’t bad but I think after last week, it felt the need to remind you what you was watching.
The episode opens with a flashback on Lester Nygaard haggling a price of socks, he somehow manages to get a shotgun thrown into the deal. We see the night he killed his wife and how he was going to take down the sinister Lorne Malvo. And if anyone had any doubts on his wound, we see a slowed down »

Before I sat down with the first four episodes of FX’s limited series, Fargo, premiering April 15 at 10Pm, I reacquainted myself with the 1996 Coen Brothers’ crime classic. It’s been over a decade since I last saw the film and like a winter squall blustering through, my memories of it had become buried deep in snow. However, after this viewing, I had this insatiable desire to soak in this world for a longer duration.
It wasn’t just any small town that had been rocked by bloody murders and criminal activity, it was this specific ivory landscape that stretched as far as the eyes could see. Its citizens were as foreign and distant as Hawaii or Alaska as were their special brand of talk and affection. Fargo felt like the Coens picked up a snow globe unlike any other and then gifted it to everyone who had seen the film. »

FX has released a new featurette for its upcoming limited event series Fargo. The TV series is an adaptation of the Coen brothers film of the same name, but many have been curious to see how different (and how similar) the show is to the movie—which, to put it simply, is a masterpiece. This new featurette does a good job of explaining the distinction between the two, as the cast and producers note that while the show has new characters and a new story, it’s very much in the spirit of the movie. Fargo is one of my favorite films of all time so I was pretty wary of FX’s spin on the material, but everything we’ve seen thus far has been genuinely promising, and the close-ended nature of the miniseries format allows them to essentially create a 10-hour movie. Hit the jump to watch the featurette. »

FX has released a new trailer for their upcoming 10-episode limited series, Fargo. Based on the classic Coen Brothers' film of the same name, the series isn't a straight adaptation, but rather a story that takes place in the same world and with a similar tone. The plot centers on "a drifter named Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton), who arrives in small-town Minnesota and influences the population with his malice and violence, including put-upon insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman)." As you can see from the trailer, Lester is reminiscent of William H. Macy's Jerry Lundegaard and Allison Tolman's cop could be along the lines of Frances McDormand's Marge Gunderson. However it lines up, the dark comedy seems very much alive (the Coens are executive producers), and this is definitely one of my must-see series of the spring. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The series also stars Colin Hanks, »
