A Fargo Community
Monday 10:00 PM on FX (Returning 2017)

One of the better-looking shows that's coming soon to a television near you is FX's Fargo, a remake of the Coen Brothers' Academy Award-winning film. Don't believe me? Well I have visual proof! FX has released the first seven minutes of the series, which debuts Tuesday, April 15, and it features one dead deer, one angry washing machine, and one debate over Jell-o salad versus meatloaf. Have a look!

That's Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman (WATSON!) heading up an amazing cast that also includes Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, and Key & Peele are you kidding me no I am not that is one fine cast!

I'll be reviewing the premiere episode and I already can tell you that it's already getting a thumbs-up based on the screener I previewed a few months back.


Fargo debuts Tuesday, April 15 on FX.

Do i need to watch Fargo the movie before watching Fargo the tv series?

It depends. If you ask this question after the series finish, then the answer will be clear.
I've seen the movie (recently at that) and I can't wait to see the series. I want more of the movie's feel, flow and humour. However, there's the possibility that the show doesn't deliver, so I'd be disappointed. If it does, it will be super cool :) So...

It does seem to have the same ambience of the original film. I know it wouldn't make any sense, but adding William H. Macy to the cast would have been great.

Took a while hearing an American accent coming out of the mouth of Martin Freeman but I like where they're going with this.

It's good to see that the Coen brothers are executive producers for the show. I'm sure it would be daunting to make a TV series remake of the original, seven Oscar nominated film without them.

And the cast is pretty amazing! A selection of familiar names from a wide range of works. In addition to the ones you mentioned there's Joey King (talented kid from the short-lived Bent), Colin Hanks (Tom's son. Yeah, that's what he goes by. He can never escape dad's shadow), Oliver Platt and Adam Goldberg (both from a wide range of productions), Glenn Howerton (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Rachel Blanchard (Clueless), Helena Mattsson (666 Park Avenue), etc...

This looks like it will be great. I expect a huge critical benefit for all involved (especially for Thornton, when was the last time he did anything worthwhile?). I'll admit I never watched the movie so I wasn't sure what to think. But it looks like FX has a new hit.

Can we actually even call it a remake? Seems to be a continuation featuring different characters in similar environments with similar themes. Supposedly it's going to be a possible anthology series like American Horror Story.

So strange to hear Martin Freeman in a different accent.

Yeah, so strange! It will take some time to get used to. To me when an actor does an accent I'm not used to hearing from him, it feels like he is overacting, or even that he is out of his depth, eventhough he is not. It's just so different from what one is used to.

Looks like John Krasinski's British counterpart is start to build a career that rivals his own. Now that I think about it, Freeman has practically pole vaulted ahead in the last year (about): The Hobbit and Sherlock's continued critical build.
