    Lastly, I haven’t seen Ratched, but I’m pretty sure Buckley is giving a superior performance.

    I watched Ratched and for the whole time I watched Buckley I thought she is delivering what Ratched couldn’t.

    I wonder how Buckley’s awards chances may have gone had the show premiered in Spring as planned. I assume she would have knocked out Holland Taylor but I wonder if she might have won.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    I don’t think any of them would’ve won considering that actors don’t love the show.

    Am I the only getting the feeling that this season is actually a Mike Milligan origin story. That would explain to me why this season takes place in Missouri and not Minnesota.

    Hawley said in a recent interview that it’s no coincidence that Whishaw’s character’s name is Milligan, so I’m sure they’re building to some reveal/insight about Mike.

    Seeing how protective Whishaw’s character was of Cannon’s son, maybe he ends up raising the kid and gives him his name. I don’t think they mentioned the kid’s name, so he might be named Mike.

    I think S4 debuted in a very wrong time. With election coming up and debates started, the season premiere made no noise.

    Jessie Buckley is incredible and they way her character manipulates people and wreaks chaos reminds me of Lorne Malvo. She’s the best thing about this season by far.

    I liked episode 3. Nice to see Whishaw have more to do. There’s still too much going on.

    Despite my personal disdain towards 60+ minutes episodes, this one flew by. Turman and Buckley continue to deliver and Whishaw got more this time. Still nothing from the two “leads”.

    I miss the typical Fargo gullible character from previous seasons, like the ones played by Freeman, McGregor and Stuhlbarg. Schwartzman is getting somewhere near to this type of character, but they were usually more prominent in the beginning of each season. Reviewers called the season formulaic and yet, to me it feels more different than ever.

    Another solid episode, though I agree it felt overstuffed with characters and plot. The size of the ensemble seems a bit too unwieldy for Hawley at this point in the season, though I’m excited to see how all of the disparate players consolidate. I also agree that this feels almost nothing like previous Fargo installments. Yes, it’s still quirky and verbose, but it’s just different––in pace, in setting, in tone. It also hasn’t had any brilliant, standout moments, despite strong work from Turman and Whishaw in this episode. I’m engaged all the same, though, and look forward to where it’s going.

    “The Pretend War” is the best episode of the season so far, by a wide margin. Terrifically paced and all of the pieces are finally coming together in exciting ways. I love that the ipecac from the end of the premiere actually has ramifications for the plot––it felt almost throwaway last week, but I should’ve given Hawley et al. the benefit of the doubt on it. I also love the quasi-supernatural/spiritual scenes this week; feels very Fargo without being a retread of previous seasons.

    Pleasantly surprised to see Stefani Robinson’s name in the end credits.

    It’s a shame reviews threw cold water on this season, because I think it’s been great. It does feel like a different show from its previous outings, but I’m enjoying the slow burn and finding every episode really nicely builds up the tension for what I assume will be an explosive finale. The past two episodes––”The Birthplace of Civilization” and “Camp Elegance”––were both excellent with standout performances from Glynn Turman and Ben Whishaw, respectively. Rock finally grew into the role and impressed with “Civilization,” which would make a great Emmy submission if he’s remembered. Whishaw is the real beating heart of this season, though, and I’d love to see him remembered at the Globes at least.

    I feel like Whishaw’s role is to small to get a Globe nomination. And I also feel like FX is gonna push Schwartzman for Globe more then there gonna push Whishaw.
