The Coen Brothers Best Picture Oscar Nominee transforms into the season's most talked about TV debut. It features a new "true crime" story and new characters, all chilled in the trademark dry wit, murderous mayhem and "Minnesota nice" of the original classic film. Lorne Malvo, is a manipulative master criminal who changes the life of insurance salesmen Lester Nygaard. Gus Grimly and Molly Solverson are the small-town police officers who join forces to uncover Lester's secrets.

When I first heard that Fargo was being made into a limited TV series, I almost immediately figured it would be hot garbage. I had no idea why they wanted to make a series about the movie (...money...) because the movie Fargo was such a classic. Surely they would find a way to mess this up. Much to my surprise the series was incredible, and to be honest, I enjoy it more than the movie. The show perfectly captures atmosphere and the dramatic/comedic elements from the classic Coen brothers movie and expands upon it. It is pure entertainment.
Obviously the acting is top-notch with actors like Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Allison Tolman (surprisingly good), and Colin Hanks. Billy Bob Thornton as Lorne Malvo is by far my favorite character on the show. He give an incredible performance each episode.

A masterpiece. Amusing and terrifying in equal measure. One of the best in the new golden age of television.

beware, the disk option to go to an episode individually only shows the first two episodes on a disk if the disk has three episodes on it.

Excellent Series. Heads up! Disc 1 was stopping & skipping forward, with huge gaps in the program...

Initially I was hesitant to give this a shot because the original movie is such a classic. I felt that inevitably the show would be a let down. I was wrong. If anything, this show is as good, if not even better than the film. Excellent cast, solid writing, great production values. It's thoroughly enjoyable on many levels.

The actor who plays Lester is terrific. Facial features, expressions add so much to his the character he is portraying.

I love the Fargo movie, so I was a bit hesitant when I heard that it was being made into a tv show. Upon watching the series I don't know what I was afraid of! The story is as engaging and thrilling as the characters and it is a rare delight to be able to see actors such as Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, and Colin Hanks interact. It's a great series and I would recommend it to fans of crime dramas and lovers of the Coen brothers movies.

Very well made! The actual violence was a bit much! Based on the true stories!

I was worried when I heard they were making a series out of the movie... but these worries were unfounded. This show is terrific... keeping the mood and dark humor of the film and throwing in a bunch of great characters. Billy Bob is a treat.
