Trivia

The episode's title, "Aporia," is ancient Greek and means "an impasse, difficult of passing, lack of resources, puzzlement." It denotes in philosophy a philosophical puzzle or state of puzzlement, and in rhetoric, a rhetorically useful expression of doubt. It refers to Emmit's (Ewan McGregor) situation with Varga (David Thewlis) of selling his soul to the devil himself. See more »

Fargo

Aporia

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 bonding between two personalities being cornered in a critical situation is portrayed stunningly with fine details that is convincing to the audience and all the credit goes to the brilliant writers and the director whose execution is excellent.
