The 3rd season is basically just as good as the first two, but still... I guess I just don't like the double Ewan McGregor, although he does a great job for what it is. Or maybe some of the novelty is gone? But Coon, Stuhlbarg and espexcially Thewlis are spectacular, even Winstead is quite good here. As far as stylized crime series go, Fargo is kind of perfect.
the first two seasons were too clever and the writing was too front and centre. Fargo Season Three is much more earnest in story yet impressively gripping and dreamy in mood. a strong visual language where the influence of David Lynch is equal to the Coen Brothers.
It's the best of the three seasons. The great cameo by my favorite character from season one (whose unexplained disappearance I'd bemoaned) was a very happy surprise. Also, this season has some great acting, from the magisterially grotesque David Thewlis to Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Goran Bogdan, and the flabbergastingly-underappreciated Carrie Coon. (But Yuri better get some Mr. Wrench treatment in a later season.)
V.M. Varga vs. Lorne Malvo... who would survive? David Thewlis was so creepy, he completely stole every scene he was on. All around another great season, with plenty of memorable characters and scenes... the grey sky in the last episode is a brilliant example of how bleak everything felt.
