I'll check this out actually. I just hope they don't exaggerate the damn accents this time.

I can't see the TV show being any better than the film. If the Coen brothers are producing the show, then I'm definitely going to watch it, although I can't say I have the best expectations.

I blame this movie for spreading the "Minnesota accent" myth

I watched the first episode and it was excellent, its one of my favourite shows now and I hope the rest of the episodes are as good. The show has the same look and feel as the movie but it's a different story and with characters. its good and you should probably watch it.

Watched the first episode last night. I'm impressed but I'm biased as I do love Fargo, the film. If you are a fan of Fargo, expect more of the same. If you never watched it, give it a chance but it might not be to everyone's tastes. 

 

Thornton's character is brilliant. He gave some laugh-out-loud moments in a darkly humorous way. Martin Freeman's character is great... just like Macy's portrayal. I notice their characters share the same surname. Are they related or just an alternate version of the same character?

I've seen the film Fargo so many times that it took a while to get into this. Freeman is no Macy and Thornton is no Stormare but once I got into it and accepted it for what it was, I really enjoyed it. This series has a lot of promise and I love the setting. The film really nailed the accents and mannerisms of the people in northern MN and the Dakotas. This one, not as much but it's still pretty entertaining.

It was an act of god. A deus ex machina.

Getting through this slowly. Only watched the second episode the other night... too many shows on the roster right now (rewatching The Wire for the 3rd time, Game of Thrones, Fargo, Sons of Anarchy, Boardwalk Empire and some more) and plus, all the films I want to see and gaming to get done! Argh! 

 

Show gets better and better :D

Might try catch the 3rd episode tonight.

I had my reservations about Martin Freeman but he has absolutely killed it so far. The show is going to benefit heavily from a more controlled viewing, I can't wait to blast through it all in one night.

So did anyone catch the season 2 premiere? They've got Ted Danson, Jeffrey Donovan and Bruce Campbell, I'm impressed to say the least.

I watched it when came on Monday, boy was that  a hoot! All the characters seem interesting, acting was really good. I'm glad they played the wrench and numbers theme.

Pretty sure it is. If not you can always try some more unorthodox methods.

It's only available on HBO, I believe. They also put up the first season, when the second was premiered.

At first I feared that I would miss Lorne too much to enjoy it, but the season premiere was really, really solid. I got irritated at Martin Freeman sometimes, because it felt like he was over-acting, and over-doing the otherwise quite charming Minnesota accent, but I don't get that this time, with this cast. It's positively hilarious the way they often stutter their way through sentences, hardly finishing any that they start. It's so well written, fantastically acted, and the atmosphere is even better than in the first season. Can't wait for more.

 

EDIT: Okay then.

Loved the movie and the first season. Haven't gotten around to the second season yet. Loved Billy Bob Thornton's character.

I've watched the first 5 episodes. It's pretty good, but I don't really find any of the characters to be as interesting as Malvo or Lester on the first season. After watching the movie and season 1 you kinda start seeing similar elements repeating as well which maybe makes the twists a bit less shocking for me. Still though, I quite enjoy it. Great acting across the board, I hope to see more of Bruce Campbell's Ronald Reagan.

While no one is as striking as Billy Bob Thronton's Malvo, the second season as a whole is much better than the first, IMO. I'm absolutely loving it, makes me look forward to Mondays.
