Season 2 : Episode 10

Show Summary

"THIS IS A TRUE STORY. The events depicted took place in Minnesota in 2006 (season 2: 1979). At the request of the survivors, the names have been changed. Out of the respect for the dead, the rest has been told exactly as it occurred," the opening text claims. Or as creator Noah Hawley puts it "... we're saying it's a true story, which it isn't, but it's following a certain true story logic ...".

Season 1: Drifter Lorne Malvo is a rootless and scheming man who shows up in small-town Minnesota where he manipulates the people with cruelty and violence. Upon meeting insurance salesman, Lester Nygaard, Malvo sets him on a path to ruin.

Season 2: The second installment of Fargo is set in 1979 and follows Detective Lou Solverson as he investigates a case involving a Mob syndicate and a local crime gang.

This 10-episode limited television series is an adaptation of the classic Academy Award winning feature film of the same title by Joel and Ethan Coen. Fargo is written by Noah Hawley and Executive Produced by Joel & Ethan Coen, Warren Littlefield, and Geyer Kosinski. Fargo is produced by FX Productions and MGM Television.

    • A masterpiece!

      Loved the season 1. Sheer Brilliance in both of the seasons! I am craving for Season 3 now!
    • Fargo Season 2- A show with everything!

      It's the best show nowadays on TV. Loved the Season 1 and now Season 2!
    • Fargo - Bring back Season 1

      1.0
      Loved season 1. Great on so many levels! Season 2, in my opinion, is one of the most boring TV shows I have ever seen. The story just goes on and on and on. I DVR'd the last 4 or 5 episodes and tried to watch. "Fast Forward" was a life-saver -- until I happily deleted every episode. If there is a Season 3, and I hope there is, I will watch the first, and maybe the second episode. But if it seems to repeat the boredom of Season 2, ---- GONE!moreless
    • Jeffrey Donovan Rocks!!!

      8.0
      I'm not really a big fan of the show, but I admit that it captured my attention since season 2 added the character of Jeffrey Donovan. So refreshing, interesting and with so many potentials, as long as the director uses his many talents. Looking forward to the rest of the story. Jeffrey Donovan ROCKS!!!
    • Ok then.

      9.0
      This show is great for many reasons, the story grabs you instantly, there are no (or very few) continuity errors, the writing and directing makes you feel asif you're watching something from the seventies.

      If you don't like dark comedies, this show is not for you.

      if you think CSI is clever and fresh, this is not for you.

      if you think NCIS: LA is tence and exciting this show is not for you.



      Ok then,

      to everyone else, just enjoy it!
