    Default Fargo on FX

    did anyone see this last night?

    I was impressed, I thought they got the tone of the original movie just right

    I also thought Billy Bob Thornton did a great job as the drifter...I think the LA times described his character as a "freelance Lucifer" and that sums it up nicely

    and the character of the unfortunately named Lester Nygard takes "put upon" to a new level.

    looking forward to seeing where this one goes

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    I recorded it and will be watching it tonight.

    Glad to hear the early positive reviews.

    Hopefully there will be more than 3 of us in this thread.

    Thought I could watch this online today, but only having AT&T basic cable doesn't allow access to FX shows. Sucks!

    Really liked it, the first episode really moved pretty fast....dark and twisted seems to be FX's specialty since the days of "The Shield"

    Pretty good first episode. Daisy is absolutely right about how they really captured the tone of the film (no wonder since the Coen Bros are executive-producers).

    Not sure how I feel about Billy Bob's character yet.

    Was that Bob Odenkirk (Saul from Breaking Bad) as one of the deputies?

    I liked the first episode, hopefully the rest are just as good.

    Yup. He didn't do much in the first episode though.

    I thought it was really good. Didn't know what to expect but love the fact that at the moment, its kind of Fargo meets No Country for Old Men. Well Billy Bob's character reminds me of a PG rated version of that creepy dude from the movie.

    My wife only thought it was ok but she never seen the movie Fargo. Was wondering what was going on with the accents.

    I think I would go crazy hearing that speak 24/7

    Billy Bob plays a character that is plain evil, and yet with a look or a simple expression, he makes me laugh out loud.

    Yup, pretty good episode 2. Saul has more of a roll now as new police chief. I thought for sure the hubba bubba question was a test to see how much amnesia Lester had. Billy Bob's character is growing on me. It is setting up for quite a few twists and turns with the main characters. The next few episodes should be interesting.

    I finally caught the two episodes on my DVR. The gf and I both really enjoyed it. We're hooked. And it's not predictable. Billy Bob plays a terrible person, but he's great in this role.
