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?

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

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.

FX did a very similar set of Teaser commercials for The Bridge as well. They really set the tone of the shows well without ruining too much plot. Really looking forward to the premier of Fargo!!!

This is easily one of my most anticipated shows for a while. FX's track record has been stellar recently, and given the producing and acting talent attached to this show, it's at least going to be worth checking out. I've also been enjoying the shorter, closed runs for different series. I generally think it's better television with less—in the words of Winne the Pooh—"stuff and fluff".
