If you missed this series when it aired on TV, take my advice and buy it now. The tone and pacing of the film is simply glorious and unlike anything I've seen before, aside, of course, from the Coen brothers many films.

The performances are all marvellous - there isn't a duff one in there - but the standout for me is Martin Freeman. I'm neither a fan of Sherlock or the Hobbit films, so he is best known to me as mild-mannered Tim from The Office, and If like me, this is all you know him from, put your preconceptions behind and prepare to be blown away.

This series is as close to perfection as I think any television drama can get. Utterly addictive and impossible to tear yourself away from. Simply put, Fargo is the greatest television series I've seen in the last decade.

Impeccably written and superbly paced, Fargo is unforgettable telly. Watching Fargo is like reading a good book, it's gripping and mysterious with engaging characters.

Set within the world created by the Coen brothers, Fargo mixes dark humour with even darker goings on. Lester is a down trodden, bullied man who has nothing of interest going on in his life. When he bumps into an old school bully and ends up in hospital he meets the enigmatic Malvo. This meeting sets the snowball effect in motion. Malvo is an unstoppable force of nature with no moral code. Lester meanwhile starts to unveil his own darker side.

The character arc for Lester is so well crafted that watching it unravel before your eyes is a joy. He changes from meek nobody to arrogant, confident pain in the butt. Played to exceptional perfection by Martin freeman, Lester is a man that you love to hate. On his case is Molly the police chief in the making. She smells a rat and knows Lester is up to no good but proving that to her inept boss and fellow police officers proves to be a tougher challenge than catching a killer! Her story is funny, sad and humbling as you watch her traverse many challenges.

The star of the show is Billy Bob Thornton playing the nefarious Malvo. A man so steeped in darkness it is a surprise you can see him at all. He effectively is the devil in disguise. Effortlessly moving from place to place without anyone noticing and taking down his targets before slipping away again. His tongue twisting mind games trick people into his way of thinking leaving doors wide open. When Malvo is on screen you won't be able to take your eyes of it such is the magnetic force this character has.

TV does not get any better than this. Never seen the film or other adaptions which made it all the more enjoyable.

Despite bearing with the slight querky-ness of the first episode - once you are aligned to the world of Bimidji it is just a joy to watch. In terms of production values - not since the first series of Heroes have I been so enchanted by an episodic classic such as this. And not since Homeland so rooted to this must watch epic.

I have already watched all the episodes twice. It's well filmed - usually in cool blue to warm reds - scene dependent - in excellent quality high definition 5.1.

Martin Freeman really is the stand out performance as well as the menace of Billy Bob-Thornot's character. The supporting cast are all excellent too - the female police deputy is a classic performance.This surely will win every TV award going.

It's already on my Christmas list.

After getting the 'Breaking Bad' box set for Christmas - and being blown away by the quality of that - I have been finding it extrememly difficult to watch much of the drivel on television at the moment
Then - along came 'Fargo' - just when I needed it most !!!
Loved every minute of this . Fantastic cast (including BB's 'Saul' Bob Odenkirk) - quirky script full of dark humour - I waited with bated breath for each new episode and was never disappointed . Fabulous ending too
Seems odd to review a DVD which hasnt been released yet - but the series is great and I will be getting it when it is available

We live in a universe of doubters, and a series remake of a beloved film , just can't be as good as the original. True, in some sense, except the series 'Fargo' is not the same as the film. We have Minnesota, the accents that we love to copy, the cold, cold, snowy weather, and I read it was filmed in Calgary at -20 degrees at times.

The first episode has Lester Nygaard, played by Martin Freeman of Watson's Sherlock fame, and he is superb, being henpecked by his wife. We meet the up and coming policewoman, Deputy Molly Solverson, played by Allison Tolman. Bob Odenkirk from 'Breaking Bad', plays a skittish, not so smart deputy. I didn't recognize him until I read the list of characters. Colin Hanks, plays a policeman, who runs into Malvo and after listening to him speak, decides to let him go. Billy Bob Thornton, plays Lorne Malvo, a pure delight as a very intelligent hit man, who seems to have insight into everyone's lives. He acts before he is asked.

The atmosphere and the environment seem like 'Fargo'. The frozen breath, the crisp snow and the weird humour we expect. Not laugh out loud funny, but deep down, ah ha's! The episode moves along at a good pace, several murders before our eyes, and the one most unexpected is the best. Smart writing, excellent acting, good music, everything to love. Lester and Malvo seem to hit it off, and will they or won't they?

Highly Recommended. prisrob 04-20-14
