Did You Know?


When Milos is taking a shower, and the water turns to blood, Malvo is reading from Exodus 2, the story of Moses when he lived in Egypt. Later in the story of Exodus, God turns all the water in Egypt to blood. See more »


Lester Nygaard is seen driving his wife's car, an Acura EL, after his car is taken by Malvo. The Acura EL was sold exclusively in Canada, where the series was filmed. It's highly unlikely that they would have imported a car from Canada because of the 5% goods and services tax (GST). See more »


Calamity Joe: A Zombie kit... shotgun, machete, some Bactine®. It's a side business. I make up these knapsacks for the Zombie Apocalypse. You know... in case the dead come back to life and world gets all "dog-eat-dog."
Lorne Malvo: It's already "dog-eat-dog," friend. Not sure what worse a bunch of zombies could do.

No Shortage of Psychotics
5 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Lorne is crazier than ever. He grabs and accountant, pulls him out of his building by his necktie as everyone looks on. His face is now on security footage. Meanwhile, Lester continues to have a bullet in his wrist and, while at work, the guys that dumped a man in an ice fishing hole show up. They are threatening, but he has no idea why they are there. Molly shows up and everything is at a standstill for a while. Lester knows that he is in trouble from outside forces. Meanwhile, Gus Grimley, the Duluth cop, is filled with guilt for letting Lorne go after a traffic stop. Lorne threatened him and he backed off to save his skin. When his superiors hear of this, they are ready to throw him to the wolves. He goes to Bemidji to confess his mistake and meets Molly there. Lorne has taken over the blackmailing of the grocery store magnate. Instead of aiding him, he now becomes his tormentor and his worst enemy. There are some great scenes. Hess's widow is visited by Lester because Hess had been insured. Two of my favorite characters are Hess's sons, a couple of obnoxious idiots. There is a great scene where they are playing with crossbows while the widow comes on to Lester. This has got to be one of the most creative shows ever on television.
