The last two episodes were pretty good. I watched them both last night.

I'm at episode 6 and loving this series. It's a really long high-quality Fargo movie. The acting is fucking awesome.

Season finale was last night and it was great.

Outstanding show. Ewan MacGregor really did well, as did Carry Coon and David Thewlis.

The bowling alley was probably the weirdest part of the series, but so very cute.

Mr. Wrench (the deaf guy) was pretty awesome.

Bowling Alley was a Big Lebowski nod.

Great show.  Sad it might be the last one (might).  However, F that ending.  Not my cup of team.  There are only two ways I could respond to that ending.

Ballsy ending. This season was all over the place, but I enjoyed it.

I still never got the feeling that Emmit and Syd deserved the fate they got like in previous seasons.

I finally got finished binging the season. Holy shit, brilliant.

As for Emmit and Sy not deserving what they got, I'm not sure it's about that. Their story was about not only the corruption of a good man, but the corrupting influence of money, while Gloria's story was about discovering that she exists.

The ending:

When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

The ending was obviously referencing Lord of War, IMO. Where Yuri Orlov was rubbing his captor's nose in the fact that all of his efforts were no more than an unknowing commercial maneuver, a negotiating tactic, V. M. Varga was pretty much telling Gloria that her entire career was a sham, that he was too powerful and the system too corrupt for anything resembling justice.

Fuck spoilers at this point, if you're reading this without having seen the final episode, you have no room to bitch.

Was looking forward to more Swango/Wrench. Sad. That said, Varga went down. Or if he didn't, he ends up a dead footnote if there are future seasons.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

Anyone thinking Varga went down is an optimist. Anyone thinking he walked is a realist.

The show is not perfect, but it is on my top 5 shows of all time. I hope they find inspiration for a 4th season.

I've ratfucked enough people in this life to be a realist.

I've also ratfucked people in real life without them knowing it to know that sooner or later, Varga's gonna piss off someone with the right connections and the wrong attitude.
