Fargo (TV series) quote:

Oh yah!

Fargo is one of my all-time favorite movies, so I had high expectations and I'm happy to say, the premiere last night met them.
I think Lester Nygaard is even more pathetic than Jerry Lundegaard. Billy Bob is in top form and there's a good supporting cast, including Bob Odenkirk and Colin Hanks, although due to the show's nature, it seems they are very disposable.

Oh geez!

I watched this last night. As far as I could tell, the end of the episode is where the Calgary scenes are going to be seen more often.

Overall, the gf and I found this show a little weird, but quite entertaining.

Watched it simply because they filled some scenes around my work and I thoroughly enjoyed it, might end up as a half decent show. Set the PVR to tape future episodes.

They had a scene in last night’s episode that was filmed in Inglewood, had Spolumbos in the background.

Weird, everyone has been talking about it so much I thought it aired a while ago. I'll have to check it out, if for no reason to see Calgary in it They were filming downtown and the front of my building was lined up with movie trailers for a day during the summer.

They filmed for quite a few days on my street in front of an old apartment building (corner of 18ave and 7st SW). Surprisingly I never actually saw any filming going on, just tons of trucks and people everywhere.

Mine too.

So far, every movie I've seen from the Coen brothers has been brilliant. If I had to choose a favourite though, I'd probably go with "O Brother, Where Art Thou?".

I just downloaded it. I really enjoyed the first episode. It has the potential to be pretty epic. Digging Billy Bob thortons' character. I've never seen the movie so I wasn't sure what to expect and so far it's pretty intriguing. Does anyone know how long the episodes will be or how many? I think the first ep was like an hour and a half!

The movie was on TV the other day and I thought the same thing.
Didn't think it was possible for anything to ruin the movie for me, but the show is just too good.

the show was wonderful. i really enjoyed it despite being skeptical of its entire premise (hadn't watched the movie) but it delivered much more than i expected.

i kinda would like to describe it as the antithesis to true detective. it was smart, witty and had superb acting from billy bob. he just owned that role.

Season 2 starts tomorrow - get ready boys! I thought season 1 was awesome, up there with The Wire and IMO one of the best shows ever made. It was so good that it kinda ruined the movie for me (it's just not nearly as good). Hope season 2 is just as excellent.
