Did You Know?


Ed Blumquist tells Lou Solverson the story of Sisyphus, a Greek mythological figure condemned to push a boulder up a hill for eternity. This is not the first time the story of Sisyphus is referenced. The third episode of season 2 is titled Fargo: The Myth of Sisyphus (2015) and in it Noreen (the girl behind the counter in the butcher shop) can be seen reading the book of the same name by Albert Camus. Camus uses the story of Sisyphus in his book to explain the absurdity of life. See more »


Korean War vet Karl, when being convinced to help negotiate between Bear Gerhardt & Lou Solverson, mentions that he once "stared down Chiang Kai-Shek". As Chiang Kai-Shek was an anti-communist ally of the US and fled to Taiwan prior to the start of the Korean War, I think what Karl Weathers should've said that he "stared down Mao Tse-Tung", the leader of the Chinese Communists who invaded Korea from the north in 1950.

Ed Blumquist: And I can't stop thinking about that book.
Ed Blumquist: Noreen's book. It's, like, stuck in my head.
Lou Solverson: What? What book?
Ed Blumquist: It's about this guy who, every day, he- he pushes this rock up this hill. Like a boulder. And then every night, it just rolls back down. But he doesn't stop. You know, he just- he keeps goin'. And -and he wakes up every day and starts pushin'. By which I-I-I guess I'm- I'm sayin' it doesn't matter what they throw at me. I'm gonna take care of what's mine. And...
Lou Solverson: These boys aren't gonna rest ...

Rio Fargo
25 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A season high-point, no question about it; and if this is as good as it gets, I'm just fine with that.

'Rhinoceros' pits the Gerhardt clan against the police, and I mean that literally; the whole thing culminates in a standoff outside the precinct. It's almost "Assault on Precinct 13", I love it; especially the tension building (in peculiar Fargo style, like seeing Mike Milligan recite Jabberwocky as he's gunning up for a fight). The use of split screen to this effect is ingenious; very nice camera work here.

And as performances go, Ted Danson, Patrick Wilson and Jean Smart all deserve praise. But for me, Nick Offerman is the MVP, a background character who suddenly takes center stage with hilarious results. The man just goes to town with the material, and I'm very happy that he's been given something more to do.

This is superb television, 10/10
