Ookay now. So the folks who made Fargo back in ’96 decided to give this new guy a shot — what’s his face, oh, Noah Hawley, I think it was — anyways these Coen Brothers — sounds Jewish maybe (how interesting!), probably from outta St. Louis Park, no doubt — these Coen brothers who are big Hollywood guys now, dontcha know, they decided to executive produce (sounds tough!) this series for this new guy Noah who was thinkin' maybe he could sorta add to what them Coen brothers sorta built on with that movie Fargo back in ’96, yah? Only this time the boys said let’s make it a TV series, yah, rather than a movie, cause the TV’s doin' real good right now, ookay? And so this Noah said yah sure sounds good, you know I think we could get to know the characters a bit more and understand real real good then why they do such bad stuff maybe? So those brothers said yup and Noah said yup sure sounds good, so we got a new show now bout a whole nother spooky crime spree up north, true story too dontcha know? But enough of that… If you haven’t been watching Noah Hawley’s Fargo series, which debuted in April and finished its tenth and final episode on FX last week, now is the perfect time to catch up on reruns. The intrinsic brevity of what is possibly Fargo’s only season allows the series to not only be a very easy and appealing binge watch, but shows the creators’ artistic integrity in their ability to succinctly create and conclude a complex and highly entertaining narrative that could very well have become stale and meandering within the popular multi-season television model.
