During the opening scene set in 1988, when Jakob Ungerleider tries to convince the colonel of his identity, the subtitles translate his comment as, "I am a German citizen." However, in the dialogue, he correctly and appropriately states he is a citizen of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). See more »


Maurice LeFay: You ever think about how they never put the morgue on the top floor of a hospital?... I notice stuff like that... It's always in the basement. It's like its own elevator.

Very happy...thanks to all who are involved
20 April 2017 | by sitindcSee all my reviews

This is only my second review and I just had to comment on the wonderful performances of Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ewan McGregor last night. I have been a little depressed over how boring and unoriginal many TV offerings have become. Fargo has restored my faith in good television. You folks rock! I hope you read this and understand that you guys really are part of something special. Thanks for not insulting your audience and for making such carefully woven, engaging story lines. You give my wife and I something to look forward to on Wednesday nights. I can't remember the last time I watched a program that I didn't want to see end. I wanted more after it was over...more Winstead, more McGregor..more everything! Thanks for bringing a little hour or more of flavor into our lives!
