The show continues its tradition of referencing Coen Brothers movies beyond Fargo. The show features a couple who are a parolee and parole officer. This echoes Raising Arizona (1987) which center on a relationship between a police officer and a criminal. See more »


Maurice stops at a gas station to consult a phone book in an attempt to recover the address that blows out the window of his car. The station is clearly signed as part of the co-operative chain UFA, which stands for "United Farmers of Alberta" and operates only in that Canadian province. Principle photography for all 3 seasons has taken place in and around Calgary, Alberta. See more »


Ray Stussy: Hey! Dickhead!
Maurice LeFay: Huh?
Ray Stussy: I gotta place, turns out a place that needs some robbing. A little robbing, not wholesale burglary, just a specific... Just looking for a certain item. And if you do it... well let's just say... your little problem goes up in smoke.
Maurice LeFay: What are we talking about?
Ray Stussy: A stamp.
Maurice LeFay: A stamp?... Like a... postage stamp?
Ray Stussy: Yeah.
Maurice LeFay: Cool... Cool... So I mean, I know I'm the moron but...

Great First Show!
20 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I am most curious how the East German angle is grafted into the story and if the Chief's step-dad is part of that. I wish I could have read who wrote the two books found in the hidden locker?

This looks like another great season; last year's was good, but no where the level of season one. It left too many unanswered questions for me. This one seems back on track.

I'll have look on line for the author's of the novels and see if these secret finds are hidden treasures which will some way of connect the East Germany, Cold War, interrogation seen at the beginning. I love how this show connects what seem unrelated events into a chaotically, absurd reality which by seasons end fits together like a finished, mosaic puzzle.

This my favorite series on TV; it is show well photographed, directed and written. I also love how the show always presents women as forces of nature which men must reckon with.
