REVIEW Fargo (S4 E4/11)

“Goodness, your mind’s a clutter of grievances” Oreatta Mayflower’s comic comment after another eye-opening and perversely hilarious sex scene with Josto Fadda in this episode serves is as oddly funny a scene as you’re likely to see. Both clothed, she has her hands clasped around his neck and she straddles him. There’s something primal, sadistic…

REVIEW Fargo (S4 E3/11)

Two episodes in on series four of Fargo and there’s a real sense it’s shaping up to be the most uneven of the bunch. Darker tonal shifts have sat uncomfortably with some of the more typical, off-kilter Fargo moments in the first two episodes, but at the end of episode three I was breathing a…

REVIEW Fargo (S4 E2/11)

In episode one of this new fourth series of Fargo, we were introduced to the Kansas City of 1950 and its recurring gangland culture, and, currently, the two warring organised crime families that are jostling for power – the Italian Faddas and the African-American Cannons. We were also introduced to a nutcase angel of mercy…

REVIEW Fargo (S4 E1/11)

One of the great, unlikely crime drama success stories in the past half-decade or so has been Noah Hawley’s TV version of Fargo. A riff on the Coen brothers’ Oscar-winning film from 1996, the televisual version has fantastically and successfully retained the original’s singular sense of humour, its flashes of quirkiness and the template of…

Fargo: New US transmission date confirmed

One of the many crime dramas that had to halt production because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fargo, it seems, is back on track. Noah Hawley’s TV version of the Coen brothers’ hit movie of the same name, it has produced three outstanding series. Now, despite the original transmission date being April, we now know when…

FX releases first trailer for series four of Fargo, names transmission date

One of the big crime shows we’re looking forward to this year is series four of Fargo, Noah Hawley’s TV spin-off of the Coen brothers’ Oscar-winning movie. Over three series it has played host to some brilliant stories, actors and moments, and has managed, remarkably, to keep the Coens’ offbeat humour, tone and stories intact…

Deadwood’s Timothy Olyphant joins series four of Fargo

We can’t wait for series four of Fargo, which is set to hit our screen next year. Now, our excitement has moved up a notch with the news that Timothy Olyphant – one of the world’s most underrated actors – has signed up to appear. Deadline reports that Olyphant will play a character named Dick…

Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley and Jack Huston join series four of Fargo

If we tell you we’re looking forward to the fourth series of Fargo, that would be an understatement. Noah Hawley’s terrific anthology series has been confirmed with Chris Rock as its lead. Now new actors have joined the cast. The Hollywood Reporter, well, reports that Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley and Jack Huston have joined up….

FX confirms series four of Fargo, Chris Rock to star

Well, this is the best news. There has been plenty of chatter about whether a fourth series of Fargo would actually happen, mainly because showrunner Noah Hawley has become one of the busiest and most sought-after talents in Hollywood. We’ve loved all three series of Fargo in varying degrees of intensity, and we didn’t mind…

Fargo set to return but not until 2020

Fargo is one of our favourite TV crime dramas, sometimes scaling heights that other shows just simply cannot reach. After three series starring the likes of Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Kirsten Dunst (pictured left), Ewan McGregor, David Thewlis and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, speculation has been rife at who the next Hollywood star would be…

Review: Fargo (S3 E10/10), Wednesday 2nd August, Channel 4

And so it came to this. The end. Or was it? That’s the question many fans of this often magnificent, often quixotic series will have asked at the end of this finale. It was a brilliant episode, a stunning finale, but that end – the very end – will have left some fans reeling. Perhaps…
