    For those who enjoyed Breaking Bad...

    there is a new TV series that has the same refreshing scenery as the first seasons of Breaking Bad

    there is now FARGO, and it's based on a true story

    dark smart characters mixing with village idiots, a must see

    No, the Coen Brothers were involved and they approve.

    And "Better Call Saul" plays a police chief, which is about the only fecking connection to Breaking Bad.

    S01E09 is up today, the last of 10 is next week.

    That was it.

    Good show, but basically not involving the Coen brothers.

    Watch the movie first to remember some key things that happened as the series is a carry on. It is only a ten part series so it almost over here at episode 9. We are really enjoying it as the wife and I were big Breaking Bad fans.

    Is this some sort of 'how much bollocks can you type about the show you're watching' competition?

    It isn't a 'carry on' at all apart from being set in the same place and featuring some of the same characters.

    I liked that bit where Jenna Jameson walked in, and played tennis with Jimmy Connors whilst smearing herself in peanut butter.

    Very similar to the scene in 'The Battle Of Algiers'.

    Reluctant to watch it. Fargo is probably my favourite film, hate to see it tainted.
    'Prowler needs a jump', still one of the funniest lines ever. There were many great lines in the film. The locations, cinematography, casting, etc. all near perfect. There's things you miss if you only see it once.

    The movie and the show bothgo out of their way to say they're "true stories" and they're both full of sh*t. I got suspicious 4 or 5 weeks back and Googled it: The truth behind Fargo's 'true story' - Telegraph

    my fear too, but they kept the same spirit and it's superbly executed

    think of it as the 12h long FARGO movie without the famous actors,

    very good work,

    oh, and I forgot, Saul is BACK !!! but not as colorful,

    For the really fucking stupid among you: They are involved and they approve.

    It takes its title, setting and tone from the 1996 black comedy/crime thriller written by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, directed by the former, and produced by the latter.

    "MGM didn't have to involve them," says executive producer Warren Littlefield, "but we wanted to. So when Noah's script was presented to them, they were like, 'This is really good.' In fact, they said to Noah, 'We don't like imitation, but we feel like you channeled us.'

    "It was a pretty amazing compliment from the Coens. Then they agreed to put their names on as executive producers -- not hands-on, day to day. They very much believe that it's all about an artist and a vision, and that Noah had that."

    Because that was how the movie started you dumb shit.

    It's what they called a "stylistic device".

    No, it isn't any kind of bollocks about anything. We watched the movie the other night and there are many similar scenes, and it is indeed a carry on if you know where the money came from. Watching the movie might make it more enjoyable to some, as it did for us.
    Press On Regardless

    interesting, so you are saying that there are references to the other story in the film ? great to know, and yes, the series has the same feeling as the movie

    "Joel and Ethan read the first script," says Hawley. "They were very complimentary about it. Then they saw the first episode when it was completed, and Ethan said 'Yeah, good'. Billy [Bob Thornton], of course, has worked with the Coens two or three times. He said that 'Yeah, good' is like a rave review from Ethan."
