Did You Know?


When Sy (Michael Stuhlbarg) visits Ruby Goldfarb (Mary McDonnell), the music playing is Piano Sonata No. 23 "Appassionata" 2nd Movement by Beethoven, which features prominently in the Coen Brothers' (Joel Coen & Ethan Coen) film The Man Who Wasn't There (2001). The film stars Billy Bob Thornton who also starred in season 1. See more »


When the sex tape is being played at Emmit's house, a camera icon, the letter A, [REC] & the battery level indicator (showing two out of three bars) are all visible on the screen. These would not be seen on the TV as this is a recording; these items only appear on the camcorder monitor screen at the time of recording and are not part of the resulting video. Additionally, when Nikki tells Ray, "Let's make a sex tape" the battery level indicator on the monitor screen of the camcorder is down to one bar, not two. See more »

The House Of Special Purpose

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.

Season 03; being nominated in Golden Globes for three awards, is witty and talkative unlike its predecessor that used to express itself more on violent tone whilst this one believes in humiliation, trickery and threats which in account of excellent execution works far better than any of it could ever have. On common terms, it still relies a lot on depiction of it hence on performance and execution on which it doesn't fail and addition to that it; as always, has amazing background score.

The plot thickens and the politics kicks in which is mixed with misunderstanding, mistakes, vulnerability and loss of power, all of it blending in perfectly delivering one of the finest tale where its lead actor (Ewan is surprisingly funny too) is doing some of his career's best work.
