Did You Know?


Most of the filming took place in Fort Macleod, Alberta, Canada. See more »


When the waitress is shot outside, from at least 25 feet away, the close up shows no spread of the blood splatter. It's almost like she was shot where she lies. See more »


Skip Sprang: C'mon! He could call a cop.
Rye Gerhardt: He's not calling anybody. Guys like that, they're just big on the outside.

They've Got Me Again!
14 October 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

So there's organized crime in Fargo. A latter day Ma Barker and her husband and their nitwit sons are running an extortion ring among other things. Meanwhile, we travel to the southwest corner of the state of Minnesota to Luverne (you may remember it as one of the focus cities in Ken Burns' "The War"). Horrible things begin to happen at a Waffle House. The Gerhardts are having trouble because of a judge's decision and one of them follows her to the restaurant. There he confronts her and she lays into him. He kills everyone in the place, following a waitress into a snowy field. Unfortunately, a car, passing through, hits him and carries him away on the hood. We are introduced to several entities. A sheriff and his son in law. A butcher's assistant, who aspires to take over the shop, and his ditzy wife who is working on "finding herself." We also have a cop who has a little girl and wife who is dealing with cancer. It's obvious that things are going to eventually happen in Fargo. This is masterfully introduced with great possibilities ahead.
