    I thought he would slap her. Wasn't expecting THAT much of a reaction.

    I'm actually rooting for Freeman and Bob Thornton even though they are probably going to be caught/killed.

    BBT is like a mischievous devil spreading chaos and anarchy where ever he goes :woot:

    Im glad they had the cop at the end act intelligently and let BBT go instead of being a dumbass and trying to enforce the law. I hate when cops in movies and shows do dumb things all for the soul purpose of the law must be upheld.

    The whole thing with telling the kid to pee in his bosses gas tank and then calling to tell her he's doing it makes me wonder how long before BBT's character screws over Lester.

    That was :lmao:, but it did make me wonder about him. I think he just did that for ****s and giggles, but he seems like the type that would cut Lester loose if he needed to. There doesnt seem to be emotions with him. Its all business.

    That's my interpretation too, while not supernatural or anything, I think the writers are really trying to build BBT up as this devil personified type character. He just strolls into town, kind of finagles some poor sap into a deal or wish, tempts everybody he comes in contact with, and just sows chaos everywhere... I love it :woot:

    So would you all recommend watching this even if I haven't actually seen the original Coen Brothers' film?

    Yep. They don't share characters or anything. But the movie is great too and it's only a minute longer than the pilot.

    Yeah, it's got the same feel as the film, but it's not a continuation or anything that you would be completely lost without seeing beforehand.

    Man, that scene with Colin Hanks was tense.

    On one hand I wanted BBT to get away and continue being a badass but I didn't want Hanks to get slaughtered.

    and I was shocked the wife got a hammer to the head. I thought BBT was going to be hired to kill her.

    He reminded me of a more impish Anton Chigurh from No Country. Chigurh with a sense of humor.

    Found out my cable provider will not be showing Fargo any longer. I hate that I even watched the first episode now!

    Another great episode last night. I love that they keep throwing Lebowski references in there.

    Also, it's hilarious watching Saul Goodman play a total dumbass lol.

    BBT just dropping his pants and taking a dump while that guy went off on him made me laugh out loud :lmao:

    I wonder why BBT kept the tape recording?

    Lester is a terrible liar.
