Fargo Season 3
Okey-dokey, watcha got here is the darkly humorous and utterly riveting third season of Fargo. Ewan McGregor gives one heckuva performance in dual roles as the 'Parking Lot King of Minnesota', Emmit Stussy and his younger brother Ray, a potbellied parole officer with a big chip on his shoulder. The only bright spot in Ray’s life is Nikki, a not-so-good woman with brains, beauty and a passion for competitive bridge. When she decides to help Ray turn his fortunes around, things quickly get out of hand and petty theft leads to mayhem and murder.
Cast and Crew
- Ewan McGregor
- Carrie Coon
- Mary Elizabeth Winstead
- David Thewlis
Set in 2010, the next installment of Fargo will feature an all-new "true crime" tale centred on "Emmit" and his slightly younger brother "Ray Stussy" (Ewan McGregor in dual roles). Emmit, the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his more successful brother's shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he's been dealt--and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry leads to a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cutthroat competitive bridge. Alongside McGregor, Carrie Coon stars as "Gloria Burgle," the steady chief of the local police department. A newly divorced mother, Gloria is trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with the people around them. Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Ray's girlfriend, "Nikki Swango," a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge. David Thewlis is "V.M. Vargas," a mysterious loner and true capitalist whose shady employers send him with a message for Emmit: "The Parking Lot King of Minnesota" has just become their newest partner. Rounding out the cast of colourful characters are Michael Stuhlbarg as "Sy Feltz," Emmit's right hand man and consigliere; Jim Gaffigan as "Donny Mashman", Gloria's police deputy; Scoot McNairy as "Maurice LeFay", a stoner with a criminal past; Shea Whigham as Meeker County Chief of Police "Moe Dammick" and Karan Soni as scientist "Dr Homer Gilruth".

You get 519 minutes worth spread over 10 episodes, with English subtitles for the hearing impaired. As usual with all in the 'Fargo' series the cinematography is stunning with each frame of each set sumptuous to watch, often like a picture postcard. Of course this season begins around Christmas time in 2010 and the setting is perfect for that season --- 'Fargo' is always set in snowy country and it's always cold.
In my view the villain of the piece is paramount and here it's David Thewlis, perhaps not as violent and psychotic as Billy Bob Thornton, but equally disgusting and disturbing and glad to see that once again the Americans feel the need to cast a Brit in the role as the bad guy (gives our guys work) complete with an English accent tinged with South African as I heard it. Thewlis is deliberately repulsive and is extremely watchable yet his characterization of the role of Varga is cleverly simple and effective. A masterful interpretation. Is he the same actor who played the kindly cab driver and owner of Black Beauty back in 1994 ? Did he play the sadistic gang leader in a 'Prime Suspect' season with Peter Capaldi in drag ? The very same. Like him or not his performances have been tres memorable.
Lets be fair to the casting department and say that the main protagonists of this season are played by another Brit, Ewan McGregor, in a dual role of two brothers. Amazing how clever these actors are as they're able to replicate those very same accents that were first heard in 'Fargo' the film in 1996.
Two girls make the production even more watchable. Carrie Coon is the plain Jane deputy, sharp as a knife and methodical in her investigations and yet dull, not dim, in keeping with the flavour of the original --- none of the police are shown to have the brains of Sherlock Holmes and I'm often surprised that the series can get away with the hint that these people from Minnesota or Dakota are not the sharpest knives in the block.
Much more flamboyant and dangerous is the other main female protagonist, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, a complete contrast to Coon as someone who has no limits as to how low she will go to get her way.
Certainly not as violent as the previous two seasons but just as twisty-turny. You cant get it perfect every time. But if you like oddness and the Coen Bros style of quirky humour this show has oodles to entertain.
