Did You Know?


In the scene in the hospital where Lester (Martin Freeman) sits with a broken nose, he meets Lorne (Billy Bob Thornton) and gives him a can of Faygo Soda Pop, an actual soda pop headquartered in Detroit and distributed in the Midwest. The logo for Faygo looks mysteriously like "Fargo." See more »


At the motel, Malvo moves the phone from the bedside table to the desk before placing the call. When he does so, he clearly disconnects the cord (phone to wall) which slides off the desk before he dials. See more »

One of the best shows, Best Seasons, I have ever seen
19 September 2017 | by FilmGangsterSee all my reviews

When I first heard that they were going to make a Fargo TV Series, was both excited and perplexed. I am a big fan of the Coen Brothers movie, but I didn't understand if they were just going to copy the movie or what. What ended up doing for the Show was a stroke of genius. The movie Fargo, like all of the Coen Brothers movies, has a very particular feel/atmosphere to it. That atmosphere is achieved using several things that make up a movie or TV show, like theme, music and setting to name a few. What the show Fargo did so well was barrow these plot points from the 1996 movie Fargo and create a entirely new story that still fit with the idea of the movie's. they also dis things like placing the show in the same universe as the movie. Lastly the made the show an anthology, meaning each season has into own characters and story. I have not seen past season one yet... however i heard it is just a good in season two and three as it is in the first. I have seen season one 3+ times now and I gotta say, season one is going to be hard to beat. It is fantastic. I highly recommend this show.
