    One of the my favorite TV movies last year was HBO's Hemmingway and Gellhorn with Nicole Kidmen & Clive Owen. I loved it. Sex , drinking and history.Even had a big fish. What's not to like?

    3 bodies in 90 minutes. Fargo's off to a solid start.

    Excellent start: they captured the understated dialogue and plot cadence, quirkiness, violence and humanity of the movie, down to the cinematographic bleakness of the snow. Overall, nice acting too. That Billy Bob is quite the instigator, eh? Glad to see on the credits that the Coen brothers are executive producers

    Looks like the critics agree:


    This Is Not A Reboot
    "To be clear: This is not a 'reboot' or 'retelling' of 'Fargo.' This series features an entirely new cast of characters inhabiting a unique story that delves into the violent undercurrents that boil just beneath our polite exteriors. Full of all of the wicked appeal, grounded sentiment, intermittently delicious and horrifying violence, and humor you'd expect from a project that's bold enough to call itself 'Fargo,' this TV adaptation grabs our attention from frame one and does not let go." — Roth Cornet, IGN

    Plenty Of Easter Eggs For Movie Fans
    "This 'Fargo' has plenty of callbacks to the original — listen for the reference to 'unguent' — and it begins as the movie does, with a disclaimer that the events (here set in 2006) are based on a true story. That story centers on Lester, whom a convincingly accented Freeman plays like Bilbo Baggins' unhappy, stammering American cousin. He's 40 and looks 50; he sputters through unpersuasive insurance pitches by day and gets berated by his disappointed wife by night. 'Sometimes I tell people you're dead,' she tells him, and to look at him, who's to say she's wrong?" — James Poniewozik, Time.com

    Fargo Is Like 'No Country For Old Men'
    "What's most interesting in this permutation, conceived by Noah Hawley, is how the narrative, despite its basis in truth, seems to draw from a variety of Coen brothers movies. The implacable contract killer played by Billy Bob Thornton, for example, feels like a close cousin to Javier Bardem's philosopher-murderer in 'No Country for Old Men,' down to his sadistic streak and tendency to engage prey in casual (if inordinately uncomfortable) conversation." — Brian Lowry, Variety

    Funnier, But Not The Masterpiece The Film Was
    "Since comparisons are inevitable, let's go ahead and make more: 'Fargo,' the series, is funnier than the film, more bleakly so. ... But the film was a masterpiece of storytelling economy that didn't spill over into side-stories, a few of which are patently ridiculous in the series (four episodes were provided for review). The film's essential weirdness felt real. The TV series' weirdness is more often just comical (or disgusting. One word: Spiders.)" — Verne Gay, Newsday

    The Series Has The Film's Spirit
    "Like the movie, the series is peculiar, with an irregular rhythm and lots of black humor, and it is also oddly winning ... 'Fargo' isn't the movie; it's a television adaptation that lives up to the spirit of the original by straying." — Alessandra Stanley, The New York Times
