Trivia

The title refers to the sorites paradox, also known as "paradox of the heap". A typical formulation of this paradox involves a heap of sand, from which grains are individually removed. Under the assumption that removing a single grain does not turn a heap into a non-heap, the paradox is to consider what happens when the process is repeated enough times: is a single remaining grain still a heap? (Or are even no grains at all a heap?) If not, when did it change from a heap to a non-heap? This paradox is referenced by Bill Budge when questioning if the file room is still a file room if you keep removing files from it. See more »

Goofs

Peele is listed as "FBI Agent Budge", Key as "Agent Pepper". But in the elevator, Key refers to Peele as "Agent Pepper". You can see Peele visibly wince, but he then follows on by referring to "myself and agent Budge." See more »

Fargo

The Heap

It often lows down the tempo and the urgency when a tale leaps further into timeline and unfortunately this is why it was low on offering dramatic sequences although the pace and writing is still up to the mark to keep you invested in it.
