If you pay attention to the first two minutes of every episode, including the first one, it tells you this story is based on true events that occurred in 2006. That's the problem with these ratings...operator error. Great show so far. One of the best on TV right now.

Awesome TV show from FX who are churning out more and more good programming. Fargo was one of the best shows I've seen in a very long time. I wouldn't call this a drama really.

When I heard they were making a TV series from the movie _Fargo_ I had my doubts. I have watched the pilot episode and I know now that my doubts were unnecessary. This is a good TV show. It has the same look and feel as the movie, with some big name talent to lend it chops. The show is offbeat and dark and the pilot, at least, has an edge as you learn how dark they're willing to go. This one matches my tastes 5 out of 5. I recommend it.
