    Fargo

    Anyone watch the first episode of the FX mini series Fargo?

    It has taken a lot of similar ideas from the movie Fargo, but it's a completely different plot. Pretty entertaining so far. If you're a fan of the movie I'd say this is worth a watch. Almost has a No Country For Old Men-of-the-north feel to it.

    I loved the first episode. Got way more violent than I thought it would for a first episode but so be it. I'm intrigued and it's on my 'must watch' list at the moment every week.

    People who think Iowa is boring haven't been to North Dakota.

    Loved it. I don't remember much about the original Fargo movie, but wow the violence and language last night really caught me off guard. I literally gasped at what happened with about fifteen minutes left in the episode. Wow, just wow.

    Ugh, the movie is one of my all time favorites. Just about as perfect of a movie as you can get in my opinion.

    Wife was watching Ellen yesterday and Kate Walsh (so hot btw) was the guest. IIRC she mentioned it taking place in the same universe as the move.

    Same universe, sure. Zero of the same characters.

    Re: Fargo

    Billy Bob Thornton's character is similar to the hit man in No Country For Old Men. Read a review that this is a new trend in series, commit to 10 episodes only to get some bigger stars to sign on that way the writers have a definite timeline to wrap everything up. If it continues onto another season it will be all new characters and story line.

    Kind of wondering if Under The Dome will get a little lame as they try to drag it out into a second season. I was ready for it to be all wrapped up last August now I have to invest an hour a week all summer to see how it ends. Kind of like having to suffer through an entire last season of How I Met Your Mother just to see how it ends.

    Glad about the trucking guy

    , torn on Martin Freemans path, and

    sad about the cop.



    That scene with Tom Hank's son (Colin) was pretty stellar. You could feel his fear when confronting Billy Bob. Terrific acting by both.

    It looks like you have to log-in with your TV provider to watch full off their website. http://vod.fxnetworks.com/watch/fargo

    Just got done watching it. Way better than I was expecting. Very good acting, and written well. I am excited for the rest of the season.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    Only helps that the Coens have helped pen quite a few of the episodes.
