One last go.
With one final, breathtaking blast, Fargo (FX, 10 ET/PT) ends its run Tuesday with a stunner that solidifies its place, not just as the year’s best miniseries, but as one of the most satisfying ever made. And for viewers who have been burnt elsewhere, part of that satisfaction will no doubt stem from the happy fact that the story actually does conclude, without feint or cliffhanger or extra-mystery padding.
If for no other reason, embrace this conclusion as time well spent with a fabulous quartet of actors and characters. The driving force is Billy Bob Thornton as the impishly satanic Lorne Malvo, but there’s equally irresistible work here from Martin Freeman as his increasingly morally unhinged foil, Lester Nygaard, and from Allison Tolman and Colin Hanks as the now happily married Molly and Gus, our heroes and links to a better world.
