The striking nature of Fargo may be best framed in terms of its completeness. So rarely does a show hit every nail on the head as consistently as Fargo does. Writing, performance, direction, production, music, it’s all there in every episode and we find ourselves falling short of adjectives to properly describe it. In plainest terms, this is a show you should be watching. Quirky, sometimes shocking, and perhaps even a little debased, Fargo is a standout in an era of television known for its standouts.
