Fargo being critically acclaimed and buzzed at awards shows is actually worth the hype and deserves the respect for its richness in acting, execution, writing and background score department. Fargo breeds power and vulnerability two opposite sides of the coin and walks right in the middle of it attaining a perfect balance between practicality and drama.

The highly anticipated season 02 of course has a huge cast and they are giving it all in; aware of being the platform they have gained. Unlike the first season, this seems fast and plot driven too as it hits hard and to-the-point from the first frame. The production design is exceptionally well detailed and stunning in it that is not only supported but celebrated by brilliant writing (the build up of a scene is beautifully poetic) and soundtrack.

There is a lot going on in this episode and even though the material is thin and familiar the finely detailed and gripping screenplay makes it all worth the wait where on the other side there is still a phase of coin left unseen that is about to flip.
