Trivia

Coen brothers (Joel Coen & Ethan Coen) reference: The full name Vladimir Ilyich Ulianov, used by Varga (David Thewlis) in reference to Lenin (to distinguish him from John Lennon), was also used by Walter in The Big Lebowski (1998). Furthermore, Varga specifies "not the walrus" (in reference to John Lennon). In "Lebowski", Donnie repeatedly says "I Am the Walrus?" in response to Walter's Lenin reference, thinking he means Lennon. See more »

Goofs

As a man exits the Stussy building, an RBC (Royal Bank of Canada) logo can be seen on the building across the street. This is a telling sign that the series is filmed in Canada as opposed to the United States, where it is set. See more »

The time we lost our way
4 June 2017 | by lyb3-891-985883See all my reviews

After the previous episode, unsettling, dark and filled with complex psychological conflict, the script bursts out in clichés and seems rather tired and worn out. The episode doesn't really add much to the deeper, philosophical aspects of this STORY, but instead serves the most shallow.

Noah Hawley once again hinders his own creation with mediocre writing. This statement, I believe, is backed up by the fact, that all the best episodes of all 3 seasons were neither written, nor directed by him.

The climactic scene is so ridiculous and unbelievable, I am struggling to accept it. The episode is a small, but significant disappointment in comparison with this, up until this point, solid and well crafted season.
