Did You Know?


Lester (Martin Freeman) solves the riddle of the farmer who has a fox, a rabbit and a cabbage, and must get all three across the river, but can only carry two at a time. A nearly identical puzzle was solved by his character Tim Canterbury in The Office (2001) episode The Office: Training (2001). See more »


When Agents Pepper and Budge are discovering the connection between Malvo's ambush in Fargo and Officer Solverson's phone messages to the FBI, Pepper takes the note from Budge and asks the other agent, "Where is Bemidji?" Given that Agents Pepper and Budge have likely been stationed in Fargo, North Dakota, for at least six months, one might assume that neither of them would need to ask where Bemidji, Minnesota, is located as it's only a two-hour drive due east. However, Bemidji only has a small population of 15,000 people, hardly an urban metropolis, and it has no federal law enforcement connections. The agents have been purposely stuck in the file room as punishment and were not given any assignments that would have permitted travel. It's conceivable that while they may have heard the name Bemidji, they did not know exactly where it was. See more »


Burt Canton: She stopped putting it in her mouth soon as the ring went on her finger.
Lorne Malvo: Well, that's a national tragedy, Burt.

Penultimatum Has To Tease!
11 June 2014 | by TejasNairSee all my reviews

And well, it did wonderfully.

We are given an intro to what might have brought our characters to Vegas and then it starts, in an elevator, what Fargo, as a film or TV show, is famous for. This specific scene will cause your jaw to drop and it will hit the ground at the climax. That is the kind of narration this ninth episode has.

The investigation has had a breakthrough and Malvo is again mad at something. Lester's character development is amazing and now he is more than the person he was in episode 1. I simply loved the 50 minutes of suspense. Still, there is one discrepancy about the Vegas elevator scene (having no surveillance cameras) which seems fabricated. Given that the incident occurs in 2007, it was hard to digest.

BOTTOM LINE: FARGO is turning out to be more gorier and even more fabulous as 2014's best crime-drama series.
