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

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

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.

 

Spoiler

 

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


It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

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.

So far I'd say last nights was the best yet.  Great acting by Odenkirk and the whole shoot out scene that we don't get to see was brilliant, well worth rewatching 2,3 or even 4 times to listen for everything that happens.  Also some very sexy vacuuming at the beginning.

Well, wasn't that fun?

 

A great show, with great acting. Jury is still out on the finale, but I thought it was pretty good.

 

Spoiler

I also blame Hess for everything. He caused his own death by putting Malvo and Lester in the same room, and tormented Lester to the point he smacked his wife with a ball-peen hammer. Of course that is really on Lester. You could say a lot of folks got what was coming to them, but many paid a higher price than they really should have; no one deserved to die just because they are an A-hole, or clueless, or just unlucky, but way too many did.

 

Lester turned out to be a total little $#!+, but also a pretty crafty criminal on the run. You could hate him and admire him all at once.

 

Did the body count have to be this high? That may be an easy way out to craft a drama, but the writing was still pretty good.

 

BB Thornton's sense of humor really elevated everything his character did. Martin Freeman, who was new to me (been in a lot of stuff I never saw), was amazing, as was Alison Tolman (never in much), who's career has just lifted off like an ICBM.

 

We got a happy ending, but not maybe the ending some were hoping for.

 

Key and Peel were fine, but their parts seemed shoe-horned in somehow. We didn't need them.

 

If they do another season, I hope we get Molly and Gus and chief Bob back in some capacity.

Forgot about that. The guide did say that it was the season final.
