    When I saw Billy Bob Thornton in a preview I made a series recording of it. Haven't watched it yet though.

    Sent from the jaws of my Hammerhead!

    It's more in the spirit of the movie than the earlier pilot with Edie Falco. I enjoyed it and have set up a series recording link.

    It was good, worth recording especially to avoid the large commercial segments.

    I'm in the recorded but not watched group. From everything I've seen I'm sure I'll enjoy this one as well. I may save them for binge watching later though.

    I believe it is planned to be a "limited series" of 10 episodes.
    I'll be watching.
    I'm not sure it's a premise I'd want to see get stretched too thin, anyway.

    It has the DNA of the original movie. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see
    Steve Buscemi, Wm. H. Macy and Frances McDormand having coffee
    together down at the corner cafe.

    Much familiarity w/the geographical areas mentioned and depicted. ( All of the sudden, life seems to be imitating art in these regions! [Or trying to.])

    I was unimpressed by the movie, which I thought was severely over-rated.

    But this series is off to a great start. Very enjoyable.

    I was sorry to see that one of the principles (the cop) will not be in succeeding eps. I was glad to see that a couple of others also will not be.

    I liked the touch of not actually seeing the first murder happen, which kind of made it more shocking in a strange way.

    10 eps only, yes. But it looks like 90 minutes a pop, at least for now.

    Am quite surprised by how much Mrs. Fluffybear enjoys the show as well. This is one fo those shows I really figured I was going to have to watch while she was at work.

    I'm so happy that they brought the humor from the movie to the TV show.
