Yeah I just spent all weekend watching both the OG movie (which I hadnt seen before somehow!!) and then the 3 eps out so far of the series.

It is really fucking good. Billy Bob Thornton's manipulative, delighted menance is just.... so fucking perfect, I loved him.

Perhaps "bemused" is better than delighted but you can see he's loving the shit out of the horrible things he's doing.

The little twist last ep linking the events of the show to the events of the film was very cleverly done.

One thing it's lacking is the movie's undercurrent of profound sadness, but maybe that's coming later.

But in terms of pure watchability I honestly think there might not be anything better out there right now.

Yay! What ep are we up to now? I think Ive only seen 3 or 4. I forget. It was a long weekend of Cohen Bros overload.

the Bronski Review (Trayce), Monday, 12 May 2014 11:11 (six years ago) link

i think the guy saying "ah jeez ah jeez ah jeez" while killing someone with a hammer was the point where i realized the spirit of the movie had been distilled into a crass formula. whole thing leaves me feeling kind of gross, and not in the way it intends.

some dude, Monday, 12 May 2014 11:12 (six years ago) link

Have you only seen the first episode? I wasn't too convinced after that either, but it definitely finds more of its own identity later on. It's broader and cruder than the movie, sure, but the plotting and character interactions have been a joy. It's almost more like a Carl Hiaasen novel or something.

[SPOILER FOR ANYONE NOT YET CAUGHT UP WARNING]

That backstory in ep4 where the King supermarket guy's car dies in the snow, he asks god for just one little simple miracle, and he finds the case of money that was buried in the Fargo movie - that just killed me.

I'm a bit confused but maybe its not clear yet. Why does Malvo seem to know this, and is messing with him with Biblical plagues?

it's a "dark" comedy full of murdered minnesota-nice archetypes with a charismatic psychopath at the center - whatever reasons I enjoy it, it's hard to begrudge when others don't

The Minnesotans of ILX are somewhat annoyed with hearing supposedly outstate characters use the words 'casserole' and 'summer house' in their dialogue. ATTENTION, NOAH HAWLEY: IT'S 'CABIN' AND 'HOTDISH'.

Adam Goldberg is a little distracting for whatever reason. But this is my favorite show on tv at the moment. It's pretty by-the-numbers but has just enough quirk to make it seem fresh. And BBT and Bilbo Baggins are both excellent. Show wouldn't be half as good without them.

calstars, Friday, 23 May 2014 17:29 (six years ago) link

the commercial frequency during the show is ridiculous, though it's still watchable. lead cop girl is sweet, deaf henchman is the grown son in There Will Be Blood? also, confused at the statement that the events are depicted 'exactly as they occurred', as is stated in the movie. Each story is wildly different. William H. Macy sort of immortalised Lester's character... MF does a decent homage?

Yeah the TV show is not a remake at all of the movie. Its not even the same town.

Im all caught up afaik (ep 7 I saw last night). Was it just my imagination or was that last ep a bit shorter than usual? It ended with Molly in the carpark standing in shock and just ended kinda suddenly. I had kids distracting me all over the place, maybe it just seemed shorter.

Have loved Billy Bob in this, especially his interaction with the fitness blackmailer.

"I'm confused."
"That's all right, I'm not."

Am I the only one that thought when Freeman was getting more... enthusiastic... with Sam's wife that the camera would pull back to show she was dead, that maybe he'd choked her to death?

Got a real Usual Suspects vibe off Freeman walking out of the police station smirking last week.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 26 September 2018 12:01 (two years ago) link

I didn't need the camera to be shoved into David Thewlis's mouth as often as it was

A good character way overused generally. Would've been much more effective only appearing every few episodes.

chap, Wednesday, 26 September 2018 12:26 (two years ago) link

i really love the music in this show, it really gives me that feeling of when you're listening to a great song and you can imagine yourself being in a movie or tv show with that song on the soundtrack. "sylvia's mother" was a good one. s3 uses this jam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VsmF9m_Nt8 (highly recommend watching that video).

Yeah it was pretty dope that they decided to include all that New Orleans brass band music in S3, even if it was incongruous at times!

I've had friends on the soundtrack for both S2 and S3, which adds another level of fun.

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 26 September 2018 18:07 (two years ago) link

finished s3, i agree that it is solid throughout but picks up with the last three episodes. ep 8, which focuses just on mary elizabeth winstead's character, was amazing

na (NA), Wednesday, 3 October 2018 21:36 (one year ago) link

I'm five or six episodes in, and she's what's holding my interest more than anything else--she's great. I like whenever Caroline Coon's on screen. David Thewlis is kind of corny, in a way that Billy Bob wasn't in Season 1.

clemenza, Wednesday, 3 October 2018 21:57 (one year ago) link

The end of episode 6, where they take Nikki away to protective custody, stylistically that was about as great as television gets.

clemenza, Thursday, 4 October 2018 01:22 (one year ago) link

i much prefered thewlis to billy bob, i can't take billy bob seriously ever and the prince valiant haircut did not help.

na (NA), Thursday, 4 October 2018 14:32 (one year ago) link

I took the haircut to be an homage/reference to Bardem in No Country (there are Coen references all through the series, most to the movie but sometimes more general), so I thought that was okay.

Finished up last night. I've never been sure how literally to take "This is a true story." I read up a bit on the factual basis for Season 2--I assume changes were made, but the basic story did happen. I mention this because I found the end of Season 3 a little disappointing. Nikki was such a great character, and noble--and they end by having her kill a workaday cop just doing his job? But if that's how it happened, and they are more or less sticking to facts, not much you can do. Start to finish, Caroline Coon was great.

Overall:

Season 1 - nice feel for the movie (A-)
Season 2 - for the most part, fantastic (A)
Season 3 - up and down (B)

Also thought McGregor's business partner was a really good character/performance; McGregor was good, but I sometimes got a little tired of him (liked him better as the parole-officer brother).

I did realize they were embellishing sometimes, yes; I realized the aliens weren't real. But where did they draw the line? If almost all of it is embellishment, then I think they made a real bad call with Nikki's end. It should have been her who got to kill McGregor, and they didn't have to have her shoot the cop.

clemenza, Friday, 5 October 2018 16:15 (one year ago) link

It's not embellishment and there is no line (but it's fine if you think that was the wrong dramatic choice)

Number None, Friday, 5 October 2018 16:21 (one year ago) link

I started watching the series from the assumption that it was all made up; it was only after skimming a couple of pieces like this one that I started to wonder, "Wait--did some of this actually happen?" Sounds like I would have been better to stick with my original assumption.

well, she started off the seasons as a grifter, more or less, correct? and she had already killed one person earlier on in the season iirc. i don't think i ever saw her as growing out of her morally dubious approach to the world at any point as the season went on.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 5 October 2018 16:46 (one year ago) link

A really sweet, likable grifter, though, with--to get really corny--a good heart. Hadn't she only killed bad people before the cop? Anyway, I won't press the point any more. I just thought she deserved a better end.

clemenza, Friday, 5 October 2018 17:26 (one year ago) link

it did feel out of character, but if she got arrested, she was going to get killed by varga. if i wanted to give the show credit, i'd say it was a commentary on how many prestige shows force us into feeling affection for antiheroes whose actions are objectively terrible if you stop and think about it for a minute. but really i think they just wanted an ending that was deflating, to go along with the ambiguity of the ending of the burgle/varga plot. no happy endings for anyone.

na (NA), Friday, 5 October 2018 17:40 (one year ago) link

what surprised me about her charter is how genuine her affection for Ray seemed to be. at first i figured she was just using him, but she did seem to genuinely love him as the season progressed.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 5 October 2018 18:36 (one year ago) link

She did. Maybe the best image of the whole season was her curled up in the bathtub with Ray tending to her.

Rewatching Season 2. I've got to mention again a scene in the fourth episode where Lou drops in on the Blumquists--he's onto their ruse with the car before anyone else--to let them know what they've accidentally gotten involved in. That scene is so great. He uses the war analogy of the doomed soldier who doesn't know he's doomed yet but has a certain look. That scene is the very essence of noir's the-noose-is-tightening foundation, as good as Fred MacMurray in Double Indemnity saying he couldn't hear his footsteps.

Also loved, in the meeting between Mrs. Gerhardt and the Kansas City people, the way one of the flunkies sidles up to Joe Bulo to whisper in his ear what happened at the hospital. Right out of The Godfather.

I think this show in particular must really take some risks as far as starting to air the beginning of the season while still working on the end. Last season, my friend's song got used for a big moment, and they got the call only a week or two before the episode aired (this was ep9).

Seems insane to do it in this era, why not just wait until it's done? Unless they want to see the social media reaction or something, which would also seem weird for a tightly scripted show like this. Maybe he just likes the pressure.

And maybe music licensing goes last, but if it hadn't worked out they would have at least had some re-editing to do.
