Best new show of 2014! It is essentially a 10-hour movie
on June 17, 2014
When I first heard that Fargo was being made into a limited TV series, I almost immediately figured it would be hot garbage. I had no idea why they wanted to make a series about the movie (...money...) because the movie Fargo was such a classic. Surely they would find a way to mess this up. Much to my surprise the series was incredible, and to be honest, I enjoy it more than the movie. The show perfectly captures atmosphere and the dramatic/comedic elements from the classic Coen brothers movie and expands upon it. It is pure entertainment.
Obviously the acting is top-notch with actors like Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Allison Tolman (surprisingly good), and Colin Hanks. Billy Bob Thornton as Lorne Malvo is by far my favorite character on the show. He give an incredible performance each episode.
This is my favorite new show of 2014 and hopefully we can get another season in the near future! I can't wait to re-watch this series on blu-ray.
