Fargo – 204 – “Fear and Trembling”

Jim and A.Ron are pleasantly surprised at the pacing of Fargo season 2; while there might have been some cheats here and there and along the way, we’ve got the anticipated Kansas City / Fargo war declared just four episodes into the season, with “Fear and Trembling”.

Jim and A.Ron enjoy the tiny breather of an episode that is “Orange Sticker”.
