Fargo Season 3

What a time to be alive for TV watching: Better Call Saul on Mondays, SHIELD on Tuesday, and, oh yeah, Fargo's back. Last we left this series of unconnected, yet somehow still connected, seasons, Hanzee Dent had gotten his face boiled after settling things with the Gerhardt's and was on his way to becoming a head of the Fargo crime syndicate that would ultimately be killed by Billy Bob's Lorne Malvo in season 1, Patrick Wilson's Lou Solverson had had his mind blown by everything he had to deal with at Sioux Falls and was on his way to becoming Keith Carradine's Lou Solverson, and Mike Milligan was promoted to a desk job with W2's, stock options, and weekend golf outings for his victory at Sioux Falls.

Season 3 is set in 2010, which, for those keeping track, is 4 years after Season 1, in which Billy Bob killed through most of the Fargo syndicate before going into business for himself, and 31 years after Season 2 and its 1979 backdrop where Sioux Falls happened. Naturally, this takes place in Minnesota, because that's how Fargo rolls: throw simple people into not so simple situations and watch the fun. This season follows Ewan McGregor, who plays a lot management mogul (because it's a thing) who finds himself in a new partnership with a group that is less than savory. Meanwhile, his brother, Ewan McGregor, is a parole officer trying to get money from him so he can get a ring for his girlfriend, superhot Mary Elizabeth Winstead. And in the middle is a cop out of her element almost immediately, played by Carrie Coon.

One episode in and, yeah, it's still great.

Also, for those keeping track, the list of the living includes the Solverson family (probably not in this because they're a small town family now), Charlie Gerhardt (the Gerhardt son with the messed up hand who Nick Offerman negotiated into being kept in jail for his own good), Mr. Wrench (the deaf hitman from season 2 who was broken out of custody by Lorne Malvo), and possibly Mike Milligan (though if he had a desk job, he probably got wiped out during the hit on Fargo HQ) and Kirsten Dunst's Peggy Blumquist (though she would now be older and likely still in jail). So now you know who to keep your eyes out for in regards to cameos.

Death by air conditioner? Oh, my. I'd heard before that Winstead had an award-winning ass on her and that scene in the tub pretty much confirmed it. First two shows have been great so far.





You know, everyone says it's not supposed to make sense, like that's the whole point, dude. And I'm just saying, you know, that's like an excuse for lazy storytelling. Just don't sell me shite and tell me it's gold, all right? I might be stoned, but I'm not high. You know what I mean?

Bought one a' them there style Mustangs a few years back after I seen't her writhing around in it in that shitty 'Death Proof' movie. If she'd move her leg a bit I could at least see where to stick the nozzle to fill 'er up. She's got Universal Hot Brunette Chick Face. Kind of a girls next door-ish, not so hot as to be unapproachable, not too to dowdy to be easily forgettable face. I rate her 4 s out of 5.

Oh right, the show. Hoping it dives into some of the lore established in the film and the first two series even though I don't think there's much more you could wring out of those plotlines. Hoping David Thewlis comes close to matching the menace of some of the heavies portrayed in this universe. Though I don't think anybody will touch what Billy Bob accomplished in the first series.

*siiiigh* But as with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, I wish I could be knocked into a coma and awoken whenst all these shows were over so I could have a more contiguous viewing experience. I'm definitely getting dumber with each passing day so it's hard to recall all the details and nuances of the shows when they're week to week viewing.

And a bit of the old ultra-violence rears it's head again as the plotlines coming crashing together. That wasn't a very nice thing to do to the pretty bad-girl. Golly.
