Fargo 2.3 The Myth of Sisyphus

TVFanatic100 TVFanatic100 Now that things are getting farther into season 2, we can view this season as its own standalone season and compare it to season 1 and I got to say I think season 1 was better at this point then season 2.

This season it's more slower there's not really a main character to latch on to and it's not as eventful as season 1 was. Yes the acting is still good and yes its still one of the best shows on air but compared to season 1 it pales in comparison. Tonight we really followed Lou Solverson and his quest to track down some answers and because of this we didn't get to spend much time with the other characters. Although his scenes were good, I really wanted to know what was happening with everyone else. Also tonight was the first time I laughed in season 2, when Hank said exactly what happened and dismissed it I laughed really hard and it was a great comedic moment in a season that has few and far between. There was a lot of intense scenes tonight but they didn't lead anywhere. I did like the ending, it was a slow and presumably terrible fate for a character that will remain nameless.

This was probably my least favorite episode this season just because it was slow and felt like a filler episode. I also felt the Gerheardt drama was a little forced at times like the argument between bear and his son. It did end on strong note and hopefully it will capitalize on the ending with a strong beginning next week.

Random notes

-I thought it was interesting how the guy Lou talked to said that the UFO comes around when ever something strange is happening. We will have to see if that rings true.

-I like the new soundtrack this year

-they need to find ways to involve the characters into the story more often. They all feel like they are on there own journey and that they are not connected but in one way (Rye)
