Another strong episode for the gang war has us very satisfied this week, while Gaetano still leaves us scratching our heads. Join us as we discuss this excellently written episode.
This week on Fargo, we talk about Ethelrida’s morbid discovery, the symbolism of oranges in gangster films, what “American values” might mean, and whether ghosts exist in this show.
This week sees KC’s two crime families taking hard lines on their business interests which could lead them to a confrontation, Josto has a personal confrontation of his own, and we get some good old-fashioned outlawin’ from a very hungry pair of women.
The first two episodes of Fargo’s newest season have been a long time coming but now they’re here and they feel like home. Join us for a discussion of this season’s new round of characters, the crazy Fargo setup, and a thematic dissection of the show.
The fourth season of Fargo begins airing this Sunday @ 9pm with a special double-header premiere so we’re defrosting the podcast hotdish with a preview. Join us to get hyped for the new season!
Season three of FX’s Fargo has proven to be another polarizing season among the fan base, and for once, we’re on the sweet side of it! We loved the ambiguity and economic and political themes this year, and thought the villain was one of the all time greats. And quite a few more people last week agreed with us, but there are still a lot of people that hate it. I don’t think I can move you from one camp to another, but if you’re on the fence? Maybe we can help you do what we know you want to do, which is love Fargo. That’s what this wrap up is about, explaining the inexplicable, embracing uncertainty, and advocating for personal responsibility in a world full of people shrugging with their hands in their pockets. Speaking of ambiguity, we’re not sure when Fargo will be back, if it’s back at all, but we hope to see you soon because Bald Move is here to stay, aiding your enjoyment of the finest and most fun television and movies. So… see you around? You betcha!
FX’s Fargo season three draws to a close, with the finale episode, “Somebody to Love”. In a dramatic twist, everyone who loved season two, which was everyone but Jim and I, absolutely hated this finale. And yet, the only two people in the known universe that didn’t see season two as a triumph, which, again, us two, loved and liked it respectively. What the darn tootin’ heck is going on here, anyway? We found this season of Fargo very much of the time, and appreciated the fact that it allowed us to decide how the plot would resolve, and what to believe, and therefore to look at the world optimistically or fatalistically. Plus, Wrench is just too frigging cool. We hope everyone who disliked the season will write in and help us understand your pain, and the so far silent admirers will come to our aid, as we have one more week to wrap up the show and our coverage for season three before we, like Varga, fade into the shadows.
Jim and A.Ron debate who won the week between the last two shows standing, AMC’s Better Call Saul and FX’s Fargo. Also, A.Ron sneaks in a few House of Cards hot takes (00:06:09).
FX’s Fargo continues on it’s hot run with this week’s episode, “Aporia”. Jim and I break down the highlights of this installment, Emmitt tells Gloria a whole lot of truth, Wrench and Nikki get Biblical on Varga’s gang, Moe ruins everything, as per usual. and we’re honestly terrified anytime the camera starts to pull focus on David Thewlis’s mouth. Good god, this show ought to have driven stock in fluoride up 500%. We wrap things up with a little bit of dead pool for the finale, and a little bit of feedback from your fellow fans. See you next week!
An epic battle! The Leftovers brings the thunder in their series finale. Better Call Saul delivers a scene of memorable tension. Fargo delves into the supernatural. Three shows enter, but only one can win the championship belt this week. Who will it be?!
