    Eventually I'm just going to stop watching movies altogether and focus entirely on television. There's so much high quality television going on right now it's hard to keep up.

    That's basically where I'm at now.

    I thought I saw Billy Bob during one of the teasers I saw during The Americans! This is going to be epic.

    That is pretty nice cast. I saw a teaser for it last night, had no idea the Coen brothers were involved.

    Just because it said Fargo I didn't think it was related to the movie or the Coens.

    I used to live in Fargo. Man did people hate the movie out there. Can't wait to hear their reactions to having to deal with a tv show.

    I never got around to seeing Fargo, but that might have to change. Just got added to Netflix, actually.

    This looks so good. Very faithful to the spirit of the film.

    Are you asking or saying? It's not at the Justified level for me yet, but the acting is outstanding. There are a few times when I'm not exactly sure WTF they're talking about though.

    No. It is neither a remake nor a sequel. It has basically taken the tone, humor and setting of the movie but with a different (similar) plot. I think the writer described it as "No Country for Men" mixed with "Fargo", which makes sense considering the similarities between the plots.

    The premiere tonight on FX is at 9!

    I liked the first episode a lot.

    Still not clear how Billy Bob's character got out of the house, though? It seemed like a dead end. Was he hiding?
