Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on April 16, 2014

fargoFargo is the non-adaptation of the Coen brothers movie of the same name, only connected to the film by location and the general subject of rural crime.

The cast is impressive, with Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, and Keith Carradine, among others. Martin Freeman not having a British accent is a little creepy, though. He’s Watson and Bilbo and Tim from the British Office and all sorts of exceedingly British-accented roles, so it took a while to buy into him as an American. But by the end I was ok with it.

The pilot is interesting enough, though a little long. They probably could have cut some stuff, but FX seems obsessed with having their shows run consistently long.
