In Fargo, a small Midwestern American town, nice guy Lester Nygaard has met a hitman called Malvo. A conversation with him leads to Lester killing his wife with Malvo helping him cover it up and going on a kill spree while 2 detectives look into the case. This shouldn't have worked. The classic 90's Coen Brothers film reworked as a TV crime drama. While this could have been a straight remake with the same characters, this instead goes into a completely different direction with a new case and new characters and once again cheekily claiming to be a true story. It really isn't. Like the movie this is poking fun a bit at true story crime dramas but is still excellent, gripping stuff. Martin Freeman with a good American accent is excellent as Lester, a million miles away from his usual nice guy roles in Sherlock, The Office and The Hobbit with Colin son of Tom Hanks good as one of the suspicious but can't prove anything detectives and Billy Bob Thornton steals the show giving one of his best performances as Malvo. You don't have to have seen the classic film Fargo to enjoy this but if you haven't that's also worth seeking out and like that movie, this is a classic dark thriller. Like True Detective, this seems to be an American anthology crime drama with each season focusing on a different case and cast and can be seen as a companion piece if you like to True Detective.

Nice to be able to give a positive review after recently reviewing a series of 'over-hyped' dire movies - Birdman springs to mind.
I loved Fargo the film and think this TV series is at least as good, maybe better than the film, as it slows the pace down and you get to understand the characters more.
Billy Bob Thornton is mesmerising as the 'hit man' and Allison Tolman as the plodding,underrated police officer grows into the part. Also a nice performance from Bob Odenkirk as the bumbling Chief of Police - totally different from his role in Breaking Bad as the crooked lawyer Saul Goodman.
Best of all is the character played by Martin Freeman as the hapless Lester Nygaard who stumbles from one crisis to another. The whole series is laced with plenty of action, twists and turns and a good dollop of 'black humour.
The film claims to be factual - I wonder if this is true.

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 2 April 2015
Format: Blu-ray
2006. Chameleonic assassin Lorne Malvo passes through the town of Bemidji, Minnesota. A chance encounter with a put-upon, stressed-out salesman named Lester Nygaard unleashes a chain of chaotic events, culminating in multiple murders. The local police force is eager to sweep the chaos under the rug, but Deputy Molly Solverson realises that there is more going on than first appears. When a Duluth police officer, Gus Grimly, has his own close run-in with Malvo, the two officers join forces to bring the assassin to justice.

At first glance, a TV series based on the 1996 movie Fargo seems like a crazy idea. The film, directed by the Coen Brothers, is idiosyncratic, unique and offbeat. Turning it into a weekly TV series sounds like a lunatic idea, which is why the Coen Brothers initially refused to have anything to do with it. After seeing the first episode, they changed their mind and signed on as producers. It’s easy to see why. The first season of Fargo, the TV series, may be the most genius single season of television produced this decade.

The connections between the TV series and the movie are slim. The TV series uses some ideas and tropes from the film and echoes a few of its ideas, but in terms of actual connective tissue the only element used is a briefcase of money left in the snow in the film, which a character stumbles over in the TV show. If you’ve never seen the film it’s not important whatsoever. It’s also a relief to learn that Fargo, like True Detective, is an anthology series. Each season will take place in a different time period with a different cast (Season 2 will take place in 1979 in South Dakota, for example).

By Call me Al TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 6 Sept. 2014
Format: DVD
Welcome to the Coen brothers universe of cold, snowy, big sky Minnesota where there be dragons and the humour is dark.

In the small town of Bemidji, a couple of unfortunate events result in two strangers striking up a conversation in a hospital waiting room. Lester Nygaard, a browbeaten wimp of a man trapped in an unhappy marriage and Lorne Malvo, a softly spoken killing machine. Malvo, played brilliantly by scene stealing Billy Bob Thornton, is evil incarnate with his dead eyes, shark smile and manipulative Jedi ways. Lester, played by Martin Freeman with a large slice of Jack Lemmon, is an unlikeable insurance salesman mocked by his wife and barely tolerated by his successful younger brother. Malvo acts as a catalyst to Lester's suppressed anger and by the end of the first episode Lester has chosen to join the dark side.

Initially it appears that Malvo and Lester have both separately escaped justice, especially with the chief of police's unwillingness to conduct anything approaching a competent rigorous investigation. However, Allison Tolman's down to earth pragmatic Deputy Molly Solverson has unresolved questions and with Lieutenant Columbo-like nagging persistence slowly begins her search for the truth. The arrival of two henchmen (Gerry Adams and Glen Campbell lookalikes) also seeking answers signpost mob connections. The body count grows with each episode as this brilliant, intelligent and audacious series reaches its conclusion.
