Did anyone watch Fargo? It was made with the Coens' blessing, and I can see why. Same set-up as the movie, but different plotlines. Normally I don't care for Billy Bob Thornton, but he's just right in this new series as an itinerant Bad Guy. The show draws you in quickly and doesn't let go.
If you missed it, FX Channel is repeating it every night until Tuesday, when the next episode airs.
