“Fargo” grabbed us all when it premiered in 1996; the Coen brothers outdid themselves with that one, giving us dark humor mixed with a gruesome, captivating story. The stress on the Minnesota accents could have bordered on silly if the film hadn’t been done right, and while they do add to some of the humor in the movie, the focus is on two wild cards, one tortured car salesman, and the police detective who connects them all in her mild-mannered way.
Now, FX is about to bring us a show based on the film, a limited series that features “Sherlock” star Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton. The series will follow in the same vein as the movie but will give us a new tale of true crime, and a new trailer has just been released that gives us a deeper look at what we can expect.
