Did You Know?


Maurice (Scoot McNairy) loses control of his vehicle when he tries to throw a joint out the window, only to have it land in his lap instead. The same thing happens to The Dude (Jeff Bridges) in The Big Lebowski (1998). See more »


The A/C unit is seen dropping vertically even though Ray kicked it out the window which would have given it a forward momentum causing it to fall in an arc. See more »


Ray Stussy: Hey! Dickhead!
Maurice LeFay: Huh?
Ray Stussy: I gotta place, turns out a place that needs some robbing. A little robbing, not wholesale burglary, just a specific... Just looking for a certain item. And if you do it... well let's just say... your little problem goes up in smoke.

Very happy...thanks to all who are involved
20 April 2017 | by sitindcSee all my reviews

This is only my second review and I just had to comment on the wonderful performances of Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ewan McGregor last night. I have been a little depressed over how boring and unoriginal many TV offerings have become. Fargo has restored my faith in good television. You folks rock! I hope you read this and understand that you guys really are part of something special. Thanks for not insulting your audience and for making such carefully woven, engaging story lines. You give my wife and I something to look forward to on Wednesday nights. I can't remember the last time I watched a program that I didn't want to see end. I wanted more after it was over...more Winstead, more McGregor..more everything! Thanks for bringing a little hour or more of flavor into our lives!
