    I saw it last night and was blown away. If you saw the movie, this show is almost identical to it but with other characters. Billy Bob Thornton was phenomenal in his role. I was highly entertained and am looking forward to watching it every Tuesday now. Looks like the Coen Brothers have another hit on their hands.

    Cool, I was looking to check it out but wasn't home last night and forgot to set it to tape. I'll check it out on demand for sure.

    I DVR'ed it and I am definitely looking forward to it. It's got a stellar cast, so I'm plenty excited. Glad to hear it's as good as it looked on the previews the last several weeks.

    It already has an 87 on MetaCritic: http://www.metacritic.com/tv/fargo

    Here's my favorite part of Matt Zoller Seitz's review:

    I attempted to set my DVR to record episodes after hearing some great reviews. Turns out that I don't have FX. :mad:

    Three episodes in and this has been nothing short of phenomenal. Quickly becoming my new favorite television show. Everything that I would expect from the Coen's.

    I was definitely a fan of the show. It wasn't perfect, but it was pretty great. I'll definitely check out next year's season.

    I'm hoping they hit up that story from Sioux Falls in 1977 or what not.

    Great show. Does anyone have any sense of what this season's storyline is going to be?

    No, but it's going to be hard to top the performances Freeman and Thornton put it.

    I saw it last year with a friend and laughed. Good movie, but my amusement was the local accent is a lot like someone frequently mentioned in the political forum....do you know who? :D

    I might. Just for the fact they were filming a scene in downtown Calgary, AB where I live.
