At the end of last week’s episode of Fargo, we were left with so many outstanding questions. Was Dodd (Jeffrey Donovan) dead? Was Floyd (Jean Smart) dead? Someone must have been dead! If you think a lot went down in that episode, sit down and get ready for an action-packed follow-up. • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 The writers managed to redeem last week’s low body count in the first few minutes of “Did you do this? No, you did it!” It actually reminded … Continue reading
Moment of silence for our beloved show, fellow fans of The Bastard Executioner. If you haven’t already heard, FX cancelled the series on Tuesday with creator Kurt Sutter’s reluctant blessing, citing the cost to make the ambitious series on location in Wales versus its unfortunately low live ratings. I’m disappointed for any number of reasons. Perhaps most of all, because this is a show that was made for a binge watch, especially given its complexity. With the winter TV doldrums at our doorstep — along with holiday vacation time — I’m virtually certain more folks would have found and invested … Continue reading
At the end of last week’s episode of Fargo, we knew what was coming. Even Ed (Jesse Plemons) and Peggy (Kirsten Dunst) knew what was coming. It was the police, looking for Ed after a guy rose up from the ashes of Bud’s Butcher Shop with a meat cleaver buried in his head. • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 So really, it’s no surprise that “Rhinoceros” kicks off with Ed getting arrested. Peggy doesn’t seem too happy about it, which makes sense. All of this is 100-percent … Continue reading
It would be easier to accept that there is but one more episode of The Bastard Executioner Season 1 if a Season 2 was confirmed and there weren’t so much ground left to cover. • The Bastard Executioner Season 1 recaps: Episode 1 and 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 |Episode 6 | Episode 7 | Episode 8 Yes, I know … plenty of folks have railed against the show’s proudly bold blending of history and fiction, Annora’s weird accent and nature, and the brutality of the violence, particularly toward women. But not one of these issues is remotely unique to … Continue reading
In this week’s episode of Fargo, the war between the Kansas City mafia and the Gerhardts kicked off with a bang. Well, it kicked off with a whole lot of bangs and at least one meat cleaver. I’d say it was definitely worth the wait. Okay then. Let’s get to the recap! • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 After weeks of fictional Ronald Reagan movies, the fictional version of the 40th President of the United States was in the house – or at least on-screen (and played by Bruce Campbell). … Continue reading
Welcome back TBXers. Did everyone survive two weeks with no news from Ventrishire? Speaking of news, the good is that Pantry Baby has reappeared all over this episode. The bad? His brother … well, let’s get to everything that happened on this week’s The Bastard Executioner. We begin at Casa Maddox where, after last episode’s attention from Wilkin, Jessamy is looking for reassurance that their coupling pleased him. He tenderly tells her it did. But there’s more somber work to tend to. He heads out the door to help Ash and the Moor lay poor Calo to rest outside the shire walls. In … Continue reading
A storm is brewing, Fargo fans. OK, so it’s been brewing from the very first scene of the very first episode. However, “Fear and Trembling” seems to be sounding all of the alarms. It’s coming, so you’d better prepare yourself. I know I’m ready! • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 This week’s episode kicks off in 1950s Fargo, North Dakota, with a young Otto Gerhardt (Michael Hogan) taking an even younger Dodd to see the fictional film Moonbase Freedom, starring Ronald Reagan. Well, sort of. The boy seems like he’s there to see … Continue reading
Last week on Fargo, we got a better peek at the Kansas City mafia, Hank ruffled the Kitchen Brothers, Peggy showed her “bad girl” side and Ed made mincemeat out of Rye — literally. This week, the body count is stacking up and things are getting sort of tense. Well, Dodd (Jeffrey Donovan, Burn Notice) is getting tense. I don’t think he has the capability to not be tense. But I digress. Ready to jump right into Season 2’s third episode? Okay then! The episode starts with a shot of Hanzee (Zahn McClarnon, Longmire) in the middle of the snowy … Continue reading
Everyone remember where we left off last week, The Bastard Executioner fans? The Wolf made himself known — as Lady Love’s equally introspective and peace-minded half-brother. Annora revealed herself to Father Wilkin as much more than just a peddler of potions, but a predictor of fates. Milus revealed that he’s pretty much going to set Wilkin up for some unplanned killing every single episode. And Jessamy reveals, well, nothing new. She’s been a nutter from the start. • The Bastard Executioner Season 1 recaps: Episode 1 and 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 |Episode 6 | Episode 7 | Episode 8 | Episode … Continue reading
After last week’s episode of Fargo, I’m looking forward to an uber-violent season, you betcha! This week was equally disturbing, so if you were watching between the slits of your fingers, let’s recap what happened. Again, this episode, “Before The Law,” reminds us that this is “a true story,” but names have been changed “at the request of the survivors.” This information is being typed over the screen as we get a glimpse of this season’s all-star cast … as well as a dead pig. Yikes. In the opening, we see Joe Bulo (Brad Garrett, Everybody Loves Raymond) and his … Continue reading
