The Castle is the second episode named after a novel of Franz Kafka See more »


When Hank is speaking to the local Captain Cheney, he tells him that he served in the "Great War" in the liberation of France. "The Great War" generally refers to WWI, and the Liberation of France is a term used when speaking about WWII. In 1979, Hank would have needed to be around 80 years old to have served in WWI, and his character is likely in his mid/late 60's as Ted Danson is in real life. Hank would have to be referring to WWII; in an earlier episode he tells Lou a war story that is clearly from WWII, so to call it "The Great War" is erroneous. See more »

Narrator: And so, we come to perhaps the bloodiest chapter in the long and violent history of the Midwest region. And here, I'm speaking of Luverne, Minnesota, 1979 - commonly referred to by laypeople as the Massacre at Sioux Falls. Readers will know that I've chosen to file this case as a Minnesota crime, even though most of the murders took place in North and then South Dakota. But I believe the key to understanding this complex and nuanced crime is to look at the butcher and small-town ...

Almost speechless
7 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

Just so you know this first paragraph is gonna be personal, if you wish to skip begin on second paragraph. What I'm gonna do is give perspective on my enjoyment of this show because oddly enough I can't think of words to describe it. To be honest I've been in tough times lately, not only personally but even the world as a whole, every week I don't think I can put that stuff out of my mind, and you know what, every week Fargo proves me wrong. Each week I tune in, each week my expectations are blown out of the water and my mind gets immersed into this show, that is how good this show is for me. I can put all of those depressing thoughts out of my head and enjoy this show. That was before this week, and I was loving this show from the very first episode, if I loved it then then what is this incredible episode to me now that is leaving me darn near completely speechless.

Honestly, I don't think I am capable of writing a synopsis while coming of the aftershocks of this episode so don't expect one. By the end of last weeks episode I could see the general idea of what was coming but it didn't matter, my awareness of what was to come gave me this great sense of impending doom and the strongest tension I have experienced this entire season, and by the end the greatest pay off of the season thus far. Let's not forget the bright lights that hovered above the motel, as absurd and nonsensical as it was it worked very well (at least for me). To be very straight forward I still cannot comprehend the absolute craziness that I witnessed and I loved every freaking second of it (aside from the abundance of ads provided by FX).

To sum it up, I have not been captivated by a TV show like this since the final season of Breaking Bad (sorry game of thrones), and the craziest thing of all is that there is one episode left and I am clueless as of what to expect but couldn't be more excited. As far as my concern goes for this episode 10.0/10.0 no doubts what so ever. I hope your on for the ride because it isn't slowing down, as I've said before tune in and I hope you aren't disappointed and that you experience this show to the extent I did. Thanks for reading and I hope this provides some use.
