Carmela and Mia from the FXFargo Tumblr blog join Bill and Charpie again this week. FX’s Fargo Episode 9 “A Fox, A Rabbit, and A Cabbage” is really lining up the forthcoming end of season one. Lorne has skills beyond killing and hunting, Lester move from D-bag to a totally deplorable person, and we speculate on how things could wrap up with a smattering of theories behind the story. Lou’s attempts to serve cherry pie and Lorne is still as evil and slippery as ever. Ding dong…Hey Lester…you are evil.

As things are winding down for this season, Bill is putting on his sad face in prep for the end of Hotdishes and FX’s Fargo Season 1.

Episode 8

Bill and Charpie break down Episode 8 The Heap in this episode of Fargo Talks Fargo. Lester has some “out with the old in with the new” in this episode, Molly makes a case with Bill again, Budge and Pepper find new circumstances, Ida and Molly chat, and other plot points. Then Noah Hawley chucks in a bit of an unexpected curveball that shifts the story. Charpie rocks a rant about red sauce and midwest white sauce for tacos. We talk about sorites paradox as well as Detective Kitty O’Day. Through it all, Bill is convinced of the soft heart of Bill Oswalt. Files are grains of sand in The Heap or are they characters in the show?

We hear about Tom’s audition process, his work on the show, and his experiences.

Episode 7

Bill and Charpie go it alone in this breakdown. The opening of this show was a fantastic play of acting, editing, and music. Lester’s plan masterfully goes off without a hitch since Molly isn’t there to ask questions. Gus has a new mission to get Molly a spleen, but only seems to find guilt and flowers. Mr. Wrench and Molly chat as much as they can and Lester is ready to get back to work (or to work it). Lorne racks up some travel miles. DLH – RNH -FAR. I hope he got double miles for these trips. Gina and Lester are reunited. Molly seems to be losing it all. So much for “We’re gonna win this one, Gus Grimly”.
