Review: Fargo Season 3 Episode 2 “The Principle of Restricted Choice”

The rejection of technology here symbolises a rejection to black and white, to yes or no, to true and false. The concept of a story is dependent on its nuance, differing perspectives and whether the reader/viewer believes what is being presented. This is an interesting theme that runs throughout this episode as the characters further root themselves into dark, crime ridden, morally ambiguous situations. Each storyline however has its different sides, yet rarely does anyone know the full picture; nothing is black and white. The narrative does progress logically albeit predictably for a show’s premiere follow up, providing depth to some of the show’s criminal plots while emphasising some brilliantly written black humour. I wouldn’t call this episode exciting, or riveting, but it feels necessary despite its slow pace. 9.1/10
