Critic Consensus: Thanks in part to a memorable dual performance from Ewan McGregor, Fargo mostly maintains the sly wit and off-kilter sensibility it displayed in its first two seasons.

Tv Season Info
Set in 2010, the third installment of Fargo centers on "Emmit" and his slightly younger brother "Ray Stussy" (Ewan McGregor).

Season 3 seemed like it had finally, decisively broken from its predecessors on both TV and in film - particularly when Mary Elizabeth Winstead's scammer emerged as the season's complicated, gray-area-dwelling hero.
This was a superb season and, earlier reservations swept aside, probably the Fargo I'd be most inclined to watch again.
It's all perfectly enjoyable in that peculiar Fargo way where you know that something kooky will inevitably be followed by something monstrous. You can also tick off a few more boxes.
It took a while to build up steam, but once the hammer dropped midway through, some fantastic and surreal elements kicked in, characters began to feel genuine instead of flat, and some devastating sequences delivered a superb story.
Overall, it feels less like an engaging story and more a series of grotesques. I'm sure it's genius. I just don't want to watch it.
Audience Reviews for Fargo: Season 3
Maybe the best TV crime drama I will see this year. If for no other reason I urge people to see season three of Fargo for the work of David Thewlis as the sinister antagonist. But, you'll also dig the performances of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Carrie Coon and Ewan McGregor who plays two roles.
