FX Is Killing It With the Teasers for Fargo (VIDEO)

Everyone's a bit burned out on TV reboots and adaptations these days. Even a cursory glance at the television landscape will reveal a plethora of based-on-a-book, -movie, and -old-or-foreign-TV-show projects, ranging from great to absolutely worthless. But every once in awhile, those adaptations are worth it, and FX's upcoming take on the 1996 Coen Brothers film Fargo appears to be one of them. 

Starring Billy Bob Thornton and Sherlock's Martin Freeman, and made with the Coen Brothers' blessing (they're also producers on the series), Fargo premieres Tuesday, April 15 at 10pmRight now the series is a closed-ended true-crime story with a limited run of 10 episodes, but it has the potential to continue on in an anthology format, similar to American Horror Story or True Detective. And if the teasers FX has been airing are any indication of what to expect, we're hoping for much more than just 10 episodes. Take a look for yourselves:

1. Roadside

2. Scrape

3. Enchanted Highway

4. Fishermen

Are you planning to watch Fargo?

    Hell yes!

    I am a massive fan of The Coens movie, I really hope the humor is still there.

    Why is their ice fishing hole outside of their ice fishing house?? Someone didn't do their research.....ha ha.

    Maybe they wanted fresh air :)

    Well they wouldn't want to fish exactly where they put the dead guy, now would they? :-)

    I don't get the appeal of Fargo. Maybe it's because I watched the edited-for-television version? I dunno. I just don't get it. It's some lumpy cops with Palin accents.

    Fargo is one of my favourite movies ever.
