"FX's Fargo Season 1"


  

          

I'm really interested in this since it looks like they kept the spirit of the film.

And it's an anthology.

Premieres April 15th

May 23rd 2014
71
Goddamn, they just hit us with a 4-in-1 death combo.
May 21st 2014
61
Malvo's a damn genius with that trap
May 21st 2014
63
I'm going to be MAD if she's dead
May 21st 2014
62
Lester's getting all Walter White.
May 21st 2014
66
She was mad dumb though. She's over-eager to an absolute fault
May 23rd 2014
72
      very true.
May 23rd 2014
75
That snowstorm shootout/pursuit was fucking awesome
May 21st 2014

I didn't think they could capture the haunting still of the
May 21st 2014
67
it was really great
May 21st 2014
68
Yes, yes it was.
May 23rd 2014

that shit was beautiful and the tension they created with the
May 23rd 2014
76
that whole ep was awesome...the cinematography in this show is great
May 22nd 2014
69
I'm guessing it was some kind of Malvo thing
May 23rd 2014
70
So who's gonna for Mr. Wrench now?
May 23rd 2014
74
where'd he go during the shootout
May 23rd 2014

May 28th 2014
81
I definitely want him to get caught
May 28th 2014
82
That building shoot-up was fucking crazy.
May 28th 2014
83
that shit was an increible piece of art in motion
May 28th 2014
85
the show seems to have one of these awesome scenes every ep
Jun 02nd 2014
89
This fucn show man. WOW. that opening sequence
May 28th 2014
86
the key & peele thing was a little distracting
May 31st 2014
87
Ha. There was the Beethoven 'joy' theme.
Jun 03rd 2014
90
first he pops a molly then he gets a molly popped!
Jun 04th 2014
91
I was thinking "how are they gonna wrap this up in two episodes"
Jun 04th 2014
92
damn can't wait to see how they wrap it up
Jun 04th 2014
93
his speech was great tho

this may have been the best episode all season
Jun 05th 2014
100
wait. Stephen Root is gonna be in it?
Jun 05th 2014
101
I guess he's the one Malvo is sitting with at the end
Jun 05th 2014
102
Dude is still out there looking for his stapler.
Jun 05th 2014
105
Prediction:
Jun 05th 2014
103
yea this is the one thing I'm trying to turn my brain off for
Jun 05th 2014
104
      the only thing i was bothered by with this:
Jun 06th 2014
106
You don't cheat on Miss Hubbard County
Jun 07th 2014
107
malvo, please shoot lester directly in his testicals.
Jun 11th 2014
108
Holy shit @ the second to last episode
Jun 11th 2014
109
Yup.
Jun 11th 2014
110
U have to wonder why Lester would poke the bear
Jun 11th 2014
111
Look at how good everything's gone for him in the last year
Jun 11th 2014
112
      well, there a difference between who you are and who you think you are
Jun 11th 2014
113
      I think she trusted him THAT much
Jun 11th 2014
115
      yup, she was the complete opposite of his wife
Jun 11th 2014
116
      Well, she was also into his dark, mysterious side.
Jun 12th 2014
124
      Does this include pummeling his wife's face with a hammer?
Jun 12th 2014
125
           In the words of one, Chris Rock
Jun 12th 2014
128
      yeah, he's really delusional
Jun 12th 2014
126
incredible tension in this episode
Jun 11th 2014
114
agreed. incredible tension. fuck Lester
Jun 11th 2014
119
Damn, my man Nysengaard is a bitch.
Jun 11th 2014
117
I assumed he wasnt certain Billy Bob was in there
Jun 11th 2014
118

so happy when detectives Key and Peele gave Maggie her props
Jun 12th 2014
121
I don't look at them as dumb anymore
Jun 12th 2014
123
Yup

Jun 13th 2014
130
Plus that dentists salary tho....
Jun 13th 2014
132
      that's the crazy part to me...he did that for SIX months
Jun 13th 2014
133
      Aron at Bald Move theorized that Lorne used to be a dentist.
Jun 13th 2014
135
           Probably a dentist in Tampa
Jun 13th 2014
136
      Malvo doesn't seem to do things for the money though.
Jun 17th 2014
142
"Classic, huh?"
Jun 13th 2014
131
Lester printed out a one-way ticket for himself. What a piece of shit.
Jun 13th 2014
134
oh shit.
Jun 14th 2014
137
Just re-watched the episode, and he may have printed two tickets
Jun 15th 2014
138
Thats how I remember it
Jun 15th 2014
140
      it's unclear even after rewatching it
Jun 16th 2014
141
This fucking guy
Jun 15th 2014
139
boom, we in here.
Jun 17th 2014
143
No, nor how Lester got back into the hospital so easy.
Jun 17th 2014
145
      I can kinda believe the lester thing?
Jun 17th 2014
146
I still like it a lot, but there are a TON of leap of faiths going on.
Jun 17th 2014
144
the only way the story really makes sense is if lorne is actually the de...
Jun 17th 2014
147
Yeah, people've called him an Anton Chigurh character from the beginning...
Jun 17th 2014
149
That's how I've viewed him. I like how they've made allusions...
Jun 17th 2014
151
      Yeah, the references are all over the place.
Jun 17th 2014
152
Jun 17th 2014
154
I said this above, few Sons of Anarchy style "reaches"
Jun 17th 2014
159
      Cmon. No one reaches like Sutter
Jun 17th 2014
164
Okay, so some predictions for tonight:
Jun 17th 2014
148
Yes on this:
Jun 17th 2014
150
Malvo's not going to die
Jun 17th 2014
153
I'll bet he just escapes entirely.
Jun 17th 2014
155
But evil never escape unscathed in Coen Bros. movies either
Jun 17th 2014
157
      Well, he lost a $100k bounty in the last episode,
Jun 17th 2014
158
           Chigurh was pretty upset/in pain when his arm got smashed
Jun 17th 2014
163
                That's not how I remember the scene.
Jun 18th 2014
180
Gus is in for some sort of redemption, no matter what
Jun 17th 2014
156
also the tapes
Jun 17th 2014
160
It's 'cause he's a freaking psychopath
Jun 17th 2014
162
      oh I wasn't pitching that as realistic or not
Jun 17th 2014
165
I have a bad feeling about Molly's safety
Jun 17th 2014
161
Hey, I was surprisingly on point with these.
Jun 18th 2014
167
      yea u basically hit that shit right on the head
Jun 18th 2014
168
      Yeah, I was off, lol
Jun 18th 2014
169
A very well done finale.
Jun 18th 2014
166
agreed, though like True Detective, the story concluding is bittersweet
Jun 18th 2014
170
      did he actually call the cops though?
Jun 18th 2014
173
      ah, that's a good point
Jun 18th 2014
174
           he could've taken key & peele's car.
Jun 18th 2014
175
                pretty sure Malvo took the feds' car after letting the car dealer drive ...
Jun 18th 2014
176
      There wasn't a true story.
Jun 18th 2014
179
      oh. well i feel deceived
Jun 19th 2014
184
           Yeah, I think most people did take it seriously in the case of the movie...
Jun 20th 2014
187
      Yeah, I felt a little bit let down, but that's probably because
Jun 18th 2014
182
Interview with Fargo creator Noah Hawley on the finale (UPROXX Swipe)
Jun 18th 2014
171
Another interview with Hawley on the finale, Mr. Wrench, & Season 2
Jun 18th 2014
172
They nailed it.
Jun 18th 2014
177
A fine ending, but this is the first episode that's disappointed me.
Jun 18th 2014
178
I think that's the nature of the anthology series
Jun 18th 2014
181
outstanding end to a great show
Jun 19th 2014
183
Yo real talk...I liked this show better than the movie.
Jun 20th 2014
185
key scene to me: Chief telling Molly he's stepping down
Jun 20th 2014
186
well said
Jun 21st 2014
188
Yeah, and it finally explained Chief Saul's motivation
Jun 22nd 2014
191
That was superb. No nitpicks here. Billy Bob fitna run away with
Jun 22nd 2014

RE: That was superb. No nitpicks here. Billy Bob fitna run away with
Jun 22nd 2014
190
      has Jon Ham won one?
Jun 24th 2014
192
      No
Jun 24th 2014
195
      Jon Hamm still has 7 in the chamber, though
Jun 24th 2014
196
I loved the shot of Malvo's shot up face
Jun 24th 2014
193
Malvo's tapes gave me an idea
Jun 24th 2014
194
oh hell fucking yeah, that's a brilliant idea!

But I can't speak for Bemidji. It's way in the middle of nowhere, and it's entirely possible they could be run by a Juggalo Council.

interesting that there were a lot of parallels to the movie, but just enough to be slightly off and push in a different direction.

they kept pushing the "oh shit" factor, too...you're thinking "how the fuck is he gonna get out of this" and then they add another body.

really good shit.

The sign language was an excellent little detail.

The female cop steady following her instincts is good stuff, but for some reason you're like damn will she stop badgering this dude? Even when you know he did it!! Good ass writing and directing.

This show has some incredible feel to it.

Malvo getting out of it almost stretched this past plausibility, but he was so convincing as the minister (and these people WANTED to let him go,) that I still believed it.

the way he changed up for Hank's character, then flipped it on the other police officers was awesome.....i'm guessing the reverend thing is an established alibi from a small town...

Yeah, I skeptical at first, but he had an airtight alibi and those cops are all pretty incompetent.

Apparently Platt has a painting of the red ice scraper hanging in his home. I gotta go back and re-watch that scene.

It's certainly a strong wink and nod.

>plausibility, but he was so convincing as the minister (and
>these people WANTED to let him go,) that I still believed it.

IMHO, Molly fucked up the investigation when she went to Chief Bill. She went in their hot-to-trot over the connection to the murder of Lester's wife and the old chief, a case she wasn't on and she knew Bill didn't want her anywhere near. If she'd framed it as a lead to the guy she found out in the wilderness, Bill probably would've let her go with the ID and maybe they could have brought in witnesses to the guy's abduction to ID Malvo as well. Would have been enough to hold him and then tie the rest of the murders in after that.

I'd say by far by ep. 1 was awesome (they all have been both those 2 stick out)

It feels like they accomplished a lot in this episode yet I did not want it to end... Everything seems to be being pieced together but no way in hell we get an ending we all expect...

not to say I'm shocked, and I get the game of thrones affect of nobody's safe on tv (especially in a 10 episode series) but damn, that hurt!

I also think this show has been SO GOOD, that we have been ignoring so many sons of anarchy reaches in the writing... the whole storyline of Martin Freeman last night was, wow, escaping is 1 thing, going back to the hospital and nobody noticing a thing? ok

and if a snowstorm is coming down that heavy and fast where you can't see... blood would be covered in 2 seconds, that part felt smart but unrealistic to me

it is funny that everything about Lorne Malvo is working strictly due to unbelievably incompetence by the police

Had to be gone, what, an hour minimum? And noone checks the room and sees radiology guy is in Lesters bed that whole time?

But yea, good enough to overlook it I guess.

Lester's escape and return was just was a big "Come On" moment.

I don't think I agree about the blood on the snow tho

also for me the "supernatural" moment with the fishes kinda annoyed me

Damn, that was brutal.

Gotta give it up for Lester, though. He's becoming a really smart (or lucky) low key criminal. I'm sure he'll get his comeuppance, but it's fun watching him keep going.

I won't go as far as to see she is (possibly was) bad police, because she's gotten solid intuition and detective skills, but man, her gung-ho shit helped get herself possibly killed. Charging out into the middle of a blinding snowstorm without telling your "partner" where you're going to pursue a shoot-out with unseen and who knows how many assailants is about the worst thing she could possibly do.

Badass.

otherwise incredible sequence, and incredible episode.

though i find myself rooting more for lester than Molly

she's doing the right thing but she's such a constant busybody, even though she's probably the best cop in town. Gus really should be a mailman like he wanted. he's not 'bout that cop life at all.

I think with Lester it's a Walter White thing on a much smaller faster scale. We saw his beginnings of being bullied and disrespected for 40 years, got pushed to his limit, went into self-preservation mode, and now has completely crossed over.

this show has really exceeded expectations.

And then BAM, time jump.

Gus and Molly are happily married and expecting, Key and Peele (forgot their names) are stuck in a room with files, and they're both still thinking about Malvo.

Also, it's been fun as hell seeing Lester turn into a full fledged asshole. Man, it's going to be satisfying when it comes down on this dude.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

just saw this in an interview with Alison Tolman (Molly)... IMDB confirms

I read that you bonded with the cast over a "crazypants" meal. What made it crazypants?
There was so many times during filming where I was like, What is happening? Look who Im hanging out with. This is bizarre. And there was one night where we were at a hotel bar, Bob, Martin Freeman, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and I, which is odd enough on its own, but then Stephen Root walked into the bar, and I was like, Oh my God, thats Stephen Root, and Martin was like, Oh, yeah! And I said, He must be here filming something, and Martin goes, Allison, hes in our show. What?! Go get him! Hes not in my storyline, so I pretty much went, Are you fucking kidding? Thats amazing. So Martin went and brought him over and the amazing amount of comedic talent at the table increased exponentially. I was honored to even be there.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Lester dies by hanging...whether he commits suicide or Malvo chokes him out, I dunno - but there was a foreshadowing shot in the last episode when he was cleaning out his wife's closet.

I do love the show but I think Malvo is so unbelievably untouchable that it's over the top. Martin Freeman is KILLING it though.

especially him walking into that building and taking out 22 people without anyone killing him, this goes for freeman as well with the hospital escape...

>well with the hospital escape...

is when he walked out, and key and peele should have seen a man walking out casually when they thought the killer was in the building. he didn't try to hide it or anything.

I know Lester wants to show off the "new Lester" but to be shut down by Lorne once at the table, and then KEEP going in the elevator I thought was odd...

great episode tho that set things up for what should be an epic finale

In response to Reply # 111


  

          

-Got rid of the wife who hated him
-Got rid of the brother who humiliated him
-Is now rid of the bully who tormented him (and fucked his wife to boot)
-Got away with murder
-Married the woman from his office who is entirely devoted to him
-Salesman of the year

The Lester who doesn't take shit form anyone seems to be doing pretty well for himself, and he doesn't realize he's the same sniveling toad of a man he was in the first episode, while Malvo is a professional predator. He thinks he's really THAT DUDE.

...i was riding for Lester til this ep...i could excuse all his earlier behavior, but everything he did this episode was dumb...

the convo between Carradine and thornton was awesome...as was ole boy realizing he saw Malvo, as was Stephen Root's appearance...as was everything Malvo did...as was Key and Peele realizing that they may not be totally screwed and giving ole girl some props in front of her idiot boss...

...this was an awesome ep...although i wonder why Lester's wife covered for him with her stop to the cops...i know she's down for him, but she never even asked why she lying for him....

As far as covering for him with Molly.

She saw how he wielded that stapler, and to the kids of a woman he had "come inside of" hours earlier.

I think she was enjoying the excitement, but didn't know how deep it all went. She realized in that moment of the interview that there was trouble, and she decided to play along.

Wait, so what was the point of using wifey as bait like that?

Was it just to get his passport when Billy Bob bounces? Or is he just an asshole that wants to run solo?

Since they gave them the chance to explain themselves a little... like they said, 154 days or whatever or absolutely nothing led them to slip up a bit, that makes their stupidity the day of the shooting a little more plausible

141. "it's unclear even after rewatching it"
In response to Reply # 140


  

          

It looks like he prints off two tickets, yet the boarding pass says Lester each time he prints. But then he's clearly holding two pieces of paper when he tells his wife he's got the tickets.

Storywise, it doesn't make sense to me why he would only print one. He's got a paranoid suspicion that Malvo will come for him, yet he's hoping that he can get the passports and fly out of there before Malvo arrives. So if his wife was able to get the passports, how would Lester explain only having one ticket? I think he printed two.

Also, after rewatching, it's pretty clear that Malvo confirmed the kill and realized it wasn't Lester. I thought Lester's orange jacket plan was underestimating Malvo's assassin skills, and the sacrifice was unnecessary. Malvo is still gunning for him an hopefully Lester will get his next episode.

Lorne was a dentist...FULLY immersed into this new world within 6 months...okaaaaay. He's also COMPLETELY untouchable. The shootout, killing that cop in the bathroom, the syndicate murders...I mean, he's never even remotely in danger.

I still think the show is so well shot, and heightens tension, and is hilarious at times...but I can't ignore how simply invincible Lorne is. Lester's a piece of shit tho.

And that's basically how I take him.

Ironically, the one thing that's really surprised me about him so far is when he was taken by surprise: when he was thrown by Lester coming up to him in Vegas. I woulda thought he'd have some kind of plan at the ready if such an event occurred, to say "this is an old friend, can you excuse us for a few seconds to catch up on some personal stuff?" or something like that. That's all it would have taken to get Lester off his back, and a hell of a lot less suspicious than to pretend he didn't know him.

...to lots of other Coen Bros. movies throughout the series: A Serious Man (Gus' conversation with his neighbor), Raising Arizona (Malvo tells a janitor he "missed a spot" exactly like H.I.), and other little things.

Malvo could just as well be thought of as a Leonard Smalls character (who, by the way, was also a bounty hunter).

A bunch of the hallway shots in the hotel last episode were straight out of Barton Fink. Somebody pointed out that there was a poster somewhere mentioning White Russians. Episode 8 had some prominently placed music with Beethoven's "joy" theme played on a steel drum (it was hummed in Raising Arizona).

I'm sure there are blog posts out there cataloging all of these things.

1. Mr. Wrench returns, but isn't the one who kills Malvo.

2. Key and Peele get whacked by Malvo.

3. Stavros appears in some capacity. Possibly tangential.

4. Gus kills Malvo, redeems himself.

5. Lester gets away with it... until they find Malvo's tape of the two of them talking the night he killed his wife ("Lester... have you been a bad boy?")

The way they've set up those tapes, I'd bet they'll amount to something more than just a way to make Malvo seem creepy.

In response to Reply # 153


          


Just like Chigurh. And people will be just as mad about it.

There's this pattern in so many Coen films of "evil" as a constant, ephemeral presence, with ordinary people getting caught up in it, dealing with it as best they can, maybe getting killed from it, and then at the end the story winds itself out but the root of it all is still there. That's very much the feeling I had coming out of the Fargo movie, even though all of the "bad guys" were killed or captured.

They seem to be painting Malvo as a supernatural personification of all this. After all we've seen of him, I can't see Malvo getting squeezed into a wood chipper or getting lectured in the back of a police car.

I mean, you sorta said it in the post: Now matter how many lives the personification of evil infects and destroys, it's always punished to some degree. Often to a great degree. Even if just by happenstance, like Chigurh getting creamed by a car running a red light. So even if Malvo is the Apex Predator or the Snake in the Garden of Eden himself, the idea that he'll just get away none the worse for wear would go against the Coen Brothers entire body of work.

and it seemed to bother him about as much as it bothered Chigurh to get hit by that car. Cosmic justice seems like, at best, a nuisance to these characters.

So yeah, I don't expect Malvo to come out of everything 'unscathed.' But I also don't expect his life to be upended in any way like it has been for everyone else.

Whereas Malvo barely blinked when he lost the $100 K. Well, he was upset for 3 seconds, then decided that seeing the look on Stephen Root's face when he pulled out his gun made it all worth it.

Eh, I'm still saying he gets killed. I don't see him headed to jail, because how do you even institutionalize someone like that?

As I remember it, he gets out of the car, buys the kid's shirt, slings himself up, and goes on about his business. All it did was slow him down and I took that as the point of the scene.


But anyway, you were absolutely right about Malvo, and like I said below, I think they handled it extremely well.

It can't be that he becomes a better person by stopping being a cop entirely. They've focused too much on his chance brush-ins with Malvo for it not to pay off in some way.

I just took as a plausible activity for someone who really is supposed to be evil personified. He likes to tape human suffering and desperation. I didn't look at it as something that's particularly unrealistic or out of character or anything.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Great scenes, dialogue, performances, and references to Fargo and other Coen Bros. flicks. A really, really fucking intense hour and a half of TV.

My one complaints was that it was a little too on the nose at some points: the wolf at Malvo's cabin, Malvo looking like a wolf after Gus plugged him, Lester running on thin ice with cracks forming around him until it gives way and he dies, etc. But the Coens can be kinda heavy-handed too.

More thoughts later, I'm exhausted.

170. "agreed, though like True Detective, the story concluding is bittersweet"
In response to Reply # 166


  

          

I knew it had to end, but I didn't want it to. It was a great season of television and the whole cast knocked it out the park. My only issues with it were Key & Peele being too hammy and out of place for the show and the whole subplot with Oliver Platt seemed unnecessary. The season could have easily been done in 8 episodes. Glad we got a happy ending though.

My one question with the finale: How did Lester end up in Montana? He called the cops as soon as Malvo arrived, and along with tons of officers being sent to his house, Lester had no car to escape in. No way they would have taken him into custody, heard the tapes, and then let him go. Only explanation is he escaped but I don't see how considering the time frame.


I hope the internet can unearth the case that this was based off of and we can find out more about the true story. Also hoping they renew for a second season (which they haven't yet) because the creator said he had ideas for two seasons.

seemed to me like he was faking to set the trap for Malvo. All the "Is this what you want, Lester?" flashbacks were about him planning a showdown with Malvo. He wanted to kill him himself.

after rewatching that scene, it does seem like he's faking that call because he immediately opened the door without a phone.

so cops weren't called to the scene, but molly was still on her way to his house. i guess it's more plausible knowing he faked the call, but it still seems like a large stretch for him to escape to montana as a fugitive without a car.

179. "There wasn't a true story."
In response to Reply # 170
Wed Jun-18-14 11:51 AM by stravinskian

          

Nor was there one for the movie. The Coens have admitted that the "true story" statement at the beginning of the movie was itself a dramatic device, intended to help people see everything in a more realist way. At the end of the movie there was the usual "this is a work of fiction, any similarity to real persons living or dead is purely coincidental" disclaimer.

That said, there were apparently some real-world events that inspired elements of the story in the movie, they just weren't connected with each other, or in the same geographic area, and many events in the move were completely fabricated.

For the show, I'm pretty sure none of it has any basis in reality. I think it was actually a mistake to put the "true story" cards at the front of each episode of the TV series. For one thing, this is really implausible as a true story, whereas the movie wasn't.

All the reviews said it was a true story. I think it took about a decade for it to be generally understood that the movie wasn't a true story. The internet wasn't as big a thing back then, I guess.

Ironically, there's another story that an actual woman took the movie to be real and went looking for the bag of money, and died while searching for it. This story is also commonly believed, even today, but also not true.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takako_Konishi_%28office_worker%29

When I started this reply I though that story had been true. I only learned just now that it isn't.

I think I was looking at things differently than the writers. I still thought it was an excellent finale to one of the best first seasons of a show ever.

I wonder if Key and Peele fought over who would get the "slow bleed out of the neck" death.

171. "Interview with Fargo creator Noah Hawley on the finale (UPROXX Swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://uproxx.com/tv/2014/06/uproxx-interview-creator-noah-hawley-answers-all-your-fargo-finale-questions/

UPROXX: Is Lorne Malvo actually Satan?

HAWLEY: (Laughs) No, but theres only one actor alive who could say that line, I havent had a piece of pie this good since the Garden of Eden, and really sell it. I mean, obviously, he died. Hes human after all. I like that thing that the Coens do. They have these almost elemental theories. Anton Chigurh, the Lone Biker of the Apocalypse, Peter Stormare. There are these moments where you think, are they human? So I think we played with that idea to some degree. But no, hes just a bad man.

UPROXX: Was there ever any question that Gus would be the one pulling the trigger?

HAWLEY: There were a lot of questions about it for me. Part of making a true story that isnt true, it has to feel real, and I wanted to avoid that heros journey structure that were all so trained to expect and want that at the end of the day, its high noon between our hero and our villain because that doesnt actually happen in real life. And if you look at the movie, in the end, when Bill Macy is arrested in the motel room, Marge isnt there; its not her jurisdiction. And that feels real, and you buy that because it feels like real life. In order to have Gus do it, it had to feel real to me, and the way we did that was to set up a mano-a-mano end game, but have it be Lester and Malvo, and then if Ive done my job right, youve forgotten entirely that Gus is in that cabin. So theres a surprise element to it.

UPROXX: It caught me off guard, because it wasnt what I expected. But the ending was sold for me when Molly makes that comment about how shes chief, so shes won, even if she wasnt the one who ultimately got Lester and Malvo.

HAWLEY: And in the first episode, Verne says to her, Youll make a good chief one day. But the other thing that made the Gus/Malvo end game work for me was the fact that while on the one hand, you may see it as a victory for Gus, its also a victory for Malvo, whose driving motivation in life is to seek and turn civilized people into animals, and he pushes Gus to commit murder, really. So its not a storybook ending. Theres some darkness and some grey to it that made it the best way to end the story in my mind.

UPROXX: Why did Malvo spare Lester in the elevator? Was it for the thrill of the chase, or did he see something some relatably evil in him?

HAWLEY: I think, like I said, its Malvos goal to see how far he can push civilized people. I think hes actually shocked and delighted at Lester he did not expect this. The Lester that he met was a milquetoast guy. He underestimated him. In this moment, Malvos been chasing this bounty and working this guy for six months, but Lester comes along, and in that moment, Lesters more interesting. He has no problem killing everyone in the elevator, and then basically telling Lester, Hey, lets spend some time together. I want to see what I made. Lester steps in that elevator, acting brave, but then something terrifying happens, and he kind of chickens out and runs away.

UPROXX: Speaking of that, why did Lester end up in Montana?

HAWLEY: Some of that was just the location. We shoot in Calgary, and were about an hour from the mountains. Wed been shooting away from the mountains the entire time, so it seemed nice to end on this incredible mountain vista with a frozen lake. Thats obviously not Minnesota. But I like the idea that hes fled, and he knows theres no way hes going to explain any of this. And hes very close to the Canadian border.

UPROXX: Theres an obvious fascination with riddles in the finale, and the entire season actually, but I cant tell if youre the type of guy who stops and thinks about them, or if youre someone who answers all riddles with he should eat all three, as Webb suggests.

HAWLEY: I like a story within a story. There were three Coen Brothers movies that really informed the season: No Country for Old Men, Fargo, and A Serious Man, which is one of my favorite movies, and I love that it starts in the shtetl with this very strange allegory about the Rabbi whos either dead or not dead. And theres this whole Schrdingers cat element to it, and it has the whole Goys teeth section. I really liked that, and knowing that we were going to do this parable sequence about the rich man, and I also really like the story Molly tells in the last episode about the mans gloves. So I just decided to make that as a framing device with the episode titles. The underlying theme of A Serious Man is, accept the mystery. The idea that there are more questions than answers in the universe, and you sometimes have to accept that Malvo went down into that basement and then he disappeared. How did he get out of that basement? Sometime you just gotta say, its a Coen Brothers movie.

UPROXX: Do you have a favorite Coen Brothers homage that you slipped into the show?

HAWLEY: Lets see. Its hard to say. It was fun to put them all in there, and to always be thinking about them. Then there are things that are but arent. Stavros is a very Coen Brothers figure, but hes not a direct adaptation of any of them. There is a wood chipper in there at some point. We do a lot of things that hopefully arent gimmicky or distracting. I think the great thing about this moment in time is that people who watch your show, they want to spend more than the hour thinking about it. It was a nice way to start a dialogue, I thought.

UPROXX: Whatever happened to Stavros?

HAWLEY: We shot a scene itll be on the DVD, in the deleted scenes there was a scene where Gus, following up on the company car thing, goes to talk to him, and Stavros is sitting in his study, throwing copies of American Phoenix into the fire. But at the end of the day, that end moment with Stavros, that pull-up with the overturned car, was such a powerful moment that the scene itself didnt tell you anything you didnt already know. That glove sequence in 1.10 , it was originally scripted that she explains it to him, but on the day of, on set, I changed it so that she just says goodbye. Its not my place to explain necessarily what things mean. I like the idea that they mean many things, and its up to you to decide what they mean to you.

UPROXX: One of the things that I decided is that Malvo is the It in Lous story.

HAWLEY: I dont know that thats a conclusion to draw. I think, unfortunately, as weve seen, evil isnt just one thing, or just one person. But once you see it, you recognize it. Thats all Ill say about that.

UPROXX: Were there any characters you thought about killing before deciding not to?

HAWLEY: Im trying to think. Yknow, everything was on the table in the room. But there were no big fights about, We gotta kill this one or save that one. It was really interesting to me, in episode eight, when the camera pans away from Gus and drifts into the woods, almost everybody that I spoke to said they thought that it was for Gus, that we were going to find Malvo and he was going to kill them. That was never my intention, nor did I anticipate that response. But I realized that we had done our job building this dread into the series, knowing that its a close-ended story and having killed a lot of people, anyone could go. Its a hard world for the little things. I think everybody felt really protective about Molly and especially Gus hes such a purely good guy, and those guys dont usually survive in these stories.

UPROXX: If there is a season two, whose story would you most want to pick up with, or would you rather deal with a whole new group of characters?

HAWLEY: Heres what Ill say about that: at the end of the movie Fargo, Marge has seen this awful Coen Brothers case, and she gets into bed and has this moment with her husband who got the three-cent stamp and theyre going to have a baby. The movie ends, and you think, she faced the worst, and her award is that tomorrow, life goes back to normal. We liked that idea its not a modern idea. The modern idea is that our law enforcement heroes, they become demon hunters who are haunted; they have to become dark souls to combat dark souls. If Im saying its a true story, its not really credible that she wakes up tomorrow, and its another crazy Coen Brothers case. She would stop being her. Shed become that haunted demon hunter just because thats the human experience. If youre exposed to too much stuff, its hard to return to that innocence. So my feeling is, theres a whole history of true crime in the Midwest that could be explored.

172. "Another interview with Hawley on the finale, Mr. Wrench, & Season 2"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-watching/fargo-creator-noah-hawley-talks-season-1-and-the-possibility-of-season-2/single-page

Were you able to map this whole story out in advance, or was it made up as you went along through the season?

Noah Hawley: In order to get the job to do it, basically, I had a 20 page pitch document, which had a lot of big picture stuff and overview stuff, and a general sense. Very specific on the pilot, but a general overview. After we had planned to go to series, they asked me for a series document, which I gave them, which laid out some of the bigger story arcs. That was around February of last year, and it became clear that there was no way to shoot until it snowed, which was going to be a whole 10 months. I suggested I could write the remaining nine episodes, which everybody liked. I said, "Give me four writers in a room for 12 weeks, and we'll break all nine episodes, and give you an outline, and I'll go off and start writing, and I'll probably give you 2 or 3 episodes at a time." And that's what I did. So I got into a room with four writers, and we broke the whole season in very minute detail. I gave the network a 115-page outline, and sat down with Mr. Landgraf and everyone, and had a three hour discussion about it, and then I went off and started writing.

So then everything that happened in this finale was roughly planned out last year?

Noah Hawley: It was all there. Nothing changed dramatically. There were a few things that were tweaked, a couple of things I added, but the overall structure of what we'd broken, and the scenes as laid out were the scenes that I wrote.

Let's talk about the decision to have Gus execute Malvo. Obviously, he needs a certain amount of redemption for his earlier cowardice at the traffic stop, but this is a serious thing he does here, and that other people seem somewhat okay with. Why did you make the decision to have him do that, and to not have Molly and the other cops too troubled by it?

Noah Hawley: Thank you for noticing it's a big deal. It is both a hero moment but also morally questionable on some level. For me, the question is, he shoots Malvo when he's sitting there injured and unarmed. Is it an act of bravery or an act of cowardice? It's not for me to make that choice, but I do feel like Gus has seen what Malvo is capable of and how he can seem to escape from a locked room, and knows that the only way this will ever end is if Malvo ends. There is a nuclear option that he goes with, which is a choice that I think everyone realizes that this is a man who is responsible for the death of a lot of people, and no one's going to mourn for him. I went back and forth on whether Gus should be the ultimate arbiter of Malvo's exit. This being a "true story" is important to me that it unfold in a way that did not feel like the Joseph Campbell hero's journey, but feel like real life with all its messiness and coincidence, where things don't add up in a storybook way. So I was resistant early on to this idea that we had set up Gus vs. Malvo so clearly, that I was resistant to the idea that Gus would be responsible. Until we got much closer to breaking that episode, and I realized that what we were setting up was Malvo vs. Lester, and then if we did our jobs right, we'd play out that Malvo vs. Lester bear trap set piece, and then hopefully the audience has forgotten is that Gus is in the cabin until he steps out of the shadows. And then what happens is a surprise. It's not like you can set up for it. In realizing that, I really did feel like it was the best way to end it.

In terms of who could have been the one to stop Malvo, Molly was certainly an option, but Gus asks her to stand aside for the entire finale. Why did you decide to not have her play much of an active role here?

Noah Hawley: For similar reasons. Obviously, Gus has his motivation that he doesn't want to go to another funeral and doesn't want her out there putting herself in danger. Part of the motivation to jump ahead a year was to make her pregnant and give the audience that moment where they thought, "Wait, that is the movie." But that realization comes with a set of expectations. Whether you think it consciously or not, you assume that the events of the show will play out similarly to the events of the movie. The point of sidelining her was to give her that moment where she's sitting there on the sidelines and decides she can't do that, so she picks up her stuff and goes to her car, at which point we're all very worried that she's going to walk into a woodchipper moment. And then she doesn't, but it was a way for me, in terms of telling the whole story and not just Molly's story, to set up an ending that felt both unpredictable and inevitable.

You talked before about the idea of Malvo as a man who can vanish out of a locked room. As you were writing the series, did you decide at a certain point that you were just going to treat him as a supernatural person, or did you have to say at every scenario, "How could a person actually do this?"

Noah Hawley: I'm a firm believer that when you make a Coen brothers movie, you have to accept the mystery. I had a number of discussions with the folks at MGM who kept asking, "How did he get out of that basement? Don't we have to show an open window or something?" And I said, "No, I don't know how he got out of that basement. You just have to accept the mystery." It was Billy's idea that Gus shoots him and he appears to be dead and then he sits up with that amazing grimace and smile with the bloody teeth. That was Billy's desire to do it that way, and I find it so chilling, and for a moment, you ask, "Is this guy really human or what?" And, of course, he is in the end. But there is that elemental figure who runs through the Coens' work from the lone biker of the apocalypse, to Anton Chigurh to even Peter Stormare. There is always this sense of a wild and elemental force. The Coens, in a lot of their movies, are making horror movies. There is a similar tension, and even morality, this idea that if you transgress, you will be punished, which is very much a horror movie mentality.

One of the things you set up right before the time jump was Malvo letting Mr. Wrench go and inviting him to come after him again if he wants to. That's something you could have revisited at the end, but you chose not to.

Noah Hawley: That's another element that's out there. That scene was one of the only scenes I added after the outline process, in the second draft of episode 8. I did it for a couple of reasons. One was there wasn't a lot of Malvo in that episode, and the other was that I wasn't ready to let Mr. Wrench go. I just thought Russell Harvard was so great. He gets let out into the world, and sometimes there are loose ends. If the audience was expecting him to pop up at some time in the last two episodes, and that added an extra sense of tension, I wasn't averse to that.

There was a lot of debate over the previous episode over what it is that Lester is expecting when he says "Yes" in the elevator. Malvo has asked him this exact question before, phrased that way, and when he didn't answer "No," Malvo killed Sam Hess. Does he understand that saying "Yes" will result in the deaths of everyone in that elevator? Or is he still that oblivious to what Malvo is capable of?

Noah Hawley: I don't think he has any expectation that Malvo's going to do that. I don't think he's thought it through as much. He wants to show Malvo that he's a man now. Before, he answered by not answering, and he's not going to do that again. There's a certain amount of "Whose is bigger?" going on in that moment. Lester's hubris is what led him to confront Malvo in the first place. My hope is that at the end of episode 8, the audience is wondering how Lester will get out of the room without Malvo seeing him, and then when he comes over in 9, you realize he has this almost pathological need to be recognized as something better than he was, that's ultimately his undoing.

"Something better than he was," and yet he's capable of putting Linda into his parka.

Noah Hawley: Better or worse, it's semantics.

But you were with me in that theater, listening to the crowd react with increasing dismay as he has her put on that hoodie. Was that the reaction you were hoping for?

Noah Hawley: Look, it's an interesting dynamic. Part of why people are so horrified and disgusted with Lester is that unlike Malvo, who's obviously a scorpion, when we meet Lester, he's wearing human clothes. So we're judging him against all the Judeo-Christian morality we have, and he fails miserably on all fronts. Part of it is interesting is because this is a man who planted a gun in a child's backpack. Why we would still hold out any hope for his humanity, that's a really interesting facet of how we react to stories. There are three parts to that moment. There's Lester saying he tweaked his back and asking her to go in, then there's him stopping her, and you think maybe he had second thoughts, but then he gives her his coat, and then he stops her again and tells her to put the hood up. And the audience's response escalated from a point of disgust, to horror, to a kind of I can't even describe what the last sound people made was.

The Sioux Falls case comes up a bunch of times in the series. Is that a story you're itching to tell at some point? Is that a possibility for a "Fargo" season 2: a period piece centered around a young Lou Solverson?

Noah Hawley: I really liked the idea and you see it through the season of a story within a story. Whether it's the parable sequence, or Molly telling the story of the gloves, or the fox and the rabbit and the cabbage, this idea that we has human beings learn by telling each other stories. It's why when you're learning math, you say "Johnny has three apples, and Billy has one apple." The idea that your story would be full of stories is important. The Sioux Falls idea was introduced in episode 2 as a way for Lou to tell Molly that he was worried about her, but he's a man of the region and he can't say, "Molly, I'm worried about you," so he basically told her a story and let her draw her own conclusion from it. And then over the course of the series, it became a more important idea, I think, that when Lou does come face to face with Malvo, he gets a sense of something he hasn't seen in a long time. I like to think that there's some leather-bound book with hand-drawn illustrations that's the history of true crime in the Midwest, and these are all stories that are taken from it.

(After the interview, I emailed Hawley to ask if he meant to imply that Malvo was the Sioux Falls killer, which had been speculated about. His reply: "Nope.")

As someone who in the past has written for ongoing series that were designed to continue for years, what was it like to do something this close-ended? Could you have set this up as the ongoing story of Molly Solverson, or would that have just watered it down too much?

Noah Hawley: I think you could have. Obviously, if you have the skill and the actors and you're telling a story that is free to digress, certainly "Mad Men" has been navigating without a traditional road map for all those years. Some of it works better for some people than others, but there's still a firm hand guiding it. But at the same time, the fact that this was designed as a close-ended story allowed me to plan it out from beginning to end. The first scene of the first episode is the first step toward the end, and everything that happens is a concrete step in that direction, and I'm able to kill off characters, or make huge dramatic moves like Lester framing his brother for murder. All of that is a step because I know where the end is. It gets a lot harder when you don't know where you're going, or you know where you're going, but you're not exactly sure how you'll get there. My fear when I spoke to FX the first time, "I said that if we turn this into a TV series where it's the continuing adventures of Molly or Marge or whoever, ultimately, it's going to feel like 'Picket Fences,' where it's just quirky and cute, and no one can ever really change, and small-town decency versus evil, no one's ever going to believe that there are real stakes.

What conversations, if any, have there been about the idea of doing a season 2, given how well this one has been perceived?

Noah Hawley: What's rewarding to me about working with FX is that while we all know it's a business, at the same time, I think we all recognize that the response to this season has been so positive because I had the time to really come up with a great story and map it out and write it all. I think we would all be more than happy to take that ride again, as long as we are confident that we can tell a story that's as good or better. And that's on me to come up with. I'm going to lay flat for a bit, and recover from this first season whirlwind, and I'm going to think about that, definitely.

178. "A fine ending, but this is the first episode that's disappointed me."
In response to Reply # 0


          


I guess it's easier to wind up the tension than it is to release it in an interesting way. The movie ended with such poetry and vision, and this just seemed to tie everything in a bow. The bad guys died, the good guys are enjoying Deal or No Deal. It's unfair to expect the show to live up to the movie, but it's also a testament to the quality of the show that I actually expected it to.

Malvo's end was masterful. As you can see from my posts above, I didn't expect him to die, but they did it better than I imagined was possible. Best thing about the episode.

Lester's downfall felt random and anticlimactic. Fitting, I guess, but I expected more.

Cool how they played the music from the movie right at the end. That knockoff music they've done in the show has been driving me mad.

Despite all my sudden qualms, I loved the series, and I hope to god they figure out a way to do a second season.

American Horror Story and to a lesser extent, True Detective suffered from anti climactic endings, as well.

183. "outstanding end to a great show"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

it's up there with True Detective for me in terms of amazing writing and acting...

and NO, there shouldn't be a season 2...i'm sure there will be because FX has a hit on their hands and they'll drag this out for as long as they can...

but ALL the Emmys should go to:
FARGO (writing and acting and best miniseries)
HANNIBAL (writing and lead acting)
ORPHAN BLACK (Tatiana Maslany for Best Actress. FUCK everyone else who gets nominated)
TRUE DETECTIVE (writing acting best drama)
GAME OF THRONES

all of these shows, with Fargo leading the charge, have been examples of exquisite tv.

Fargo? I have to agree with someone who posted on facebook, FX could make 10 episode miniseries of ANY of the Coen Brothers movies. Could you imagine:

a southern fried erotic drama/thriller based on BLOOD SIMPLE

a period thriller based on MILLER'S CROSSING

the Big Lebowski *AND* Burn After Reading as dark ass, comedy dramas?

FX needs to get on this...

but FARGO was outstanding....across the board.

186. "key scene to me: Chief telling Molly he's stepping down"
In response to Reply # 0
Fri Jun-20-14 09:38 AM by Amritsar

  

          

Bob Odenkirk pulled it off so well. Brilliantly acted. It really is the scene that summed up the entire series. A direct parallel to Chief Bell's scene in the diner from No Country For Old Men. Perfectly Cohen-esque.

After looking up the meaning of "Morton's Fork" the episode makes a little more sense to me now.

A Morton's Fork is a specious piece of reasoning in which contradictory arguments lead to the same (unpleasant) conclusion.

Lester's situation and Molly's parable were the Morton's fork. The unavoidable unpleasant conclusion was that Lester was fucked. Although it would not have saved him from a lifetime in prison, Lester could have done the right thing and given himself up for the greater good of getting Malvo taken down, but he decided not to throw out the other glove. In the end, no matter what he does, he's on thin ice and the cracks will form around him. His (and Malvo's) fault was daring to wonder "What if you're right and they're wrong?"

because for a minute he was defending lester to the point where it almost felt crooked.

He just had so much faith in humanity. In his mind, other people do crazy shit like murder their wives, and cops. outsiders from some other town or city... but his neighbors... the kind, and simple people he knows could never be capable of something like that.

And the show will most likely clean up next year (or whenever their last year of eligibility is) as part of a whole sweeping achievement award thing

Not sure why we're taunting Hamm about not winning an Emmy in the first place

In response to Reply # 0


          

If they do additional seasons, each one could be centered around the stories behind some of those other tapes. That way Billy Bob can be kept as an anchor character and the setting and the rest of the cast can be changed each season to match their anthology plan. I'm sure there are some other juicy conversations on those tapes and I want to hear them!

What do you all think?

I'm almost at the end of the first episode now. I feel like a complete idiot for not wanting to watch this when I had cable because I wasn't a fan of the movie. Remarkable how action packed the first episode is. As miserable it is to get interrupted by the commercials on Hulu, I'm going to binge watch this weekend.
