I spent most of the weekend watching the entirety of the third season of Fargo. If you know me, I often go on about how Fargo is the best television around. Excellent show and every season takes the writing up to greater heights.
This season gave us Mr. V. M. Varga, one of the most terrifying villains I’ve ever come across. The writers managed to pull off a depiction of pure unrepentant demonic evil flawlessly, and most importantly without resorting to caricature or gore. Varga is beautifully written satanic evil perfection.
If you are a writer, I recommend watching this season. It’s a stand-alone, so you don’t need to watch season one and two. Watch this for the fantastic writing and expert use of symbolism and Biblical allusion.
