Lets get back into it one more time before we put season 5 to bed to hear your final thoughts on the season.
It’s the season finale of Fargo Season 5, did Noah Hawley pull it off? The overall plot and the character of Munch gave this season a Grimm’s Fairy Tale feel. This was one of the best episodes of the season, Juno Temple gives a great performance and Roy is finally taken down. Hear Jim and A.Ron’s thoughts and your feedback as we sign off on this season of Fargo.
The tides are turning on the newest episode of Fargo. Roy is fully a nightmare. We’re starting to feel sorry for Gator. Ole Munch walks off into the mist. And Dot’s true history comes to light. With the ending of the season in sight, Jim and A.Ron are wondering what is true and what is all a “dream”?
Jim is still down with covid so my buddy Ron Dawson (author of “Dungeons ‘n’ Durags” and host of podcast of the same name) joins me to break this episode down. Does Dorthy feel repressed guilt about the fate of Linda? Will Gator find redemption? Is Lorraine a villain? And what the hell does “Blanket” mean, anyway?! All this plus feedback including a fascinating email on David Graeber’s “Debt: The First 5,000 Years“.
Just as Jim and A.Ron were getting back into the Fargo saddle, tragedy strikes! Jim has fallen ill and so A.Ron turns to Pete Peppers to help break down all the puppety action this episode. What does Dot’s dream escapades tell us about her inner conflict? What kind of unholy vengeance does Ole Munch have planned for the Tillmans? And holy hell, Gator is almost 30?!? We’ll get fully caught up with this week’s episode and feedback with another new host by the end of the week! Thanks for your patience as we reroute things to cover for Jim in his hour of need.
New year, more coverage! Jim and A.Ron are diving back into Fargo Season 5. Just like this podcast, this sixth episode of Fargo is a lesson in delayed gratification. Roy is becoming more of a person. Indira needs to run. Try the gray stuff, it’s delicious. Who is getting a redemption arc by the end of the season?
Lyons and tigers and…and…involuntary psychiatric commitment. Oh my! The backstories are coming out in this episode. Working in healthcare is dangerous when Dot is at your hospital. And are we headed toward a Dot/Munch team up? Get your fix of Fargo and theory crafting in this week’s episode with Jim and A.Ron.
It was the Home Alone episode that Jim and A.Ron have been waiting for. Did it meet expectations? Munch is leaving cryptic messages. John Hamm hasn’t raised his voice once, but is he in control of the situation? Listen in for the full discussion and tidbits of wisdom.
Noah Hawley is leaning heavily into the supernatural aspect. This episode is packed with references to history and lore. You might be saying, “Whoa now! That’s a lot of background information I don’t care to look up!” That’s ok because Jim and A.Ron did all the research for you. You’ll soon understand the sentence: A sin-eater finds a home.
Fargo comes to your small screen with a two episode premiere of season 5! Jim and A.Ron are here to take you back to the not-so-distant past of 2019 where dumb cops, supernatural entities and copious amounts of violence descend on a Midwestern town. This grim version of Home Alone didn’t pack laughs, but its potential for mayhem is tantalizing. Don’t forget to set your traps!
