Fargo the TV series

    There was a little discussion of it on the TV thread, but was thinking this one might get enough interest to merit its own thread. The more I read of interviews with the cast and crew, the more excited I'm getting for it. The first seven minutes, which they released recently is very good: https://screen.yahoo.com/exclusive-first-7-minutes-fxs-211406132.html. Dark comedy might be my favorite TV/movie genre, so I'm really hoping they can pull it off.

    Here are interviews with Noah Hawley and Warren Littlefield, the creators of it: http://www.hitfix.com/the-fien-print/interview-noah-hawley-and-warren-littlefield-bring-fargo-to-the-small-screen

    Like I said on the other thread, I was hoping it would be terrible so I wouldn't have to watch. Between Game of Thrones, Mad Men, The Americans and Braves baseball, there's just not a lot of free TV time for me these days.

    But it's apparently outstanding.

    Don't know anything about the TV series, but Fargo might be the most overrated movie I have ever seen.

    There. I said it.

    I disagree, but I think Joel and Ethan Coen are overly praised as directors. They had an incredible stretch at the beginning of their careers, but over the last 10-12 years, they have 3-4 whiffs for every hit, but to be fair, some of those hits (No Country for Old Men, True Grit) are pretty great.

    A Serious Man and Inside Llewyn Davis are two of the most overrated movies in recent years. Neither is terrible, but I'll bet the praise for both movies would be considerably lower if they weren't "Coen Brothers" movies.

    Burn After Reading, Intolerable Cruelty and The Ladykillers are just dreadful.

    Inside Llewyn Davis is a better movie than True Grit, by a pretty good margin. True Grit is the one that's solid, but overpraised.

    I turned off A Serious Man halfway through (and I love Michael Stuhlbarg in Boardwalk Empire). I didn't do that with Burn After Reading, but I probably should have.

    Intolerable Cruelty is probably their most underrated movie. That's what I take issue with, specifically.

    Burn after Reading is probably their worst movie, IMO, especially given the A-list cast.
