    Anybody watched the premier... It was pretty sick... It felt somewhat similar to True detective.... I haven't seen the movie but the show is off to a good start.... Currently 9.4 rating on imdb.

    Not sure .... Haven't seen the movie.... But in the Intro Credits it says it's based on True Story.

    I think the movie was also based on a true story, the covers are identical too.

    Based on the movie.

    Sort of true, lots of different cases stitched together with fictional interactions and characters.

    The woodchipper thing though, that happened.

    It is not meant to be an extension of the Cohen Brothers' movie. It is a stand alone series even though the advertisements did nothing to discourage thoughts of it being a continuation of sorts. The only thing the two have in common is that the series creators sought out the Cohen Brothers' stamp of approval on the series. If this gets picked up for a second season, it will have a whole new set of actors and storyline just like AMC's American Horror Story.

    Just for facts, the movie said it was based on a true story but it wasn't true at all. The Coen brothers did that just to screw up with the audience and make them feel more touched by the story.

    This is almost the most famous thing about the movie.

    This series is probably saying the same for identical purpose.

    On a side issue, some people are still losing their lives while searching for the loot along the side of a fence looking similar to the one in the film.
    Must be pretty cold during the winter in that neck of the woods.

    Try telling the searchers that, Andres.
    Even Hitler, in one of his parodies, said that he'd be the darkest-complexioned bloke in Fargo, if he and his pals moved there.
    But apparently Fargo has a good ice hockey team.

    I bet there never was money along the fences.

    This lol, both the movie and series are almost entirely fictional. I say almost because there were cases the Coen brothers got inspired from, but it was never connected.

    As for the the TV show Fargo, it's one of the best series pilots/premiers I've seen in a good while and I'm sure it will be a great series. TV shows are the future, now that they have such big budgets and actors, good times.

    Also in the film it says the events happened in 1987 and in the TV series it says 2006. I guess it's easier to make it look like 2006 than 1987

    The new episode was okay'ish, not as good as the pilot.

    Looking forward to the next. :)

    Well, I was expecting for it to be slower, it's always like that after a blast which the pilot was. I'm sure it will be great throughout the season though. :)
