The FX network has been killing it over the past few years with amaze-balls shows such as The Americans, Justified, Louie, American Horror Story, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Shield, and on and on... and if they hit gold with the new Coen Brothers' Fargo reboot (debuting Tues, April 15), I guess that officially makes them the best network on TV.
Check out the first seven minutes of Fargo, which is set in the same frozen Minnesotan landscape (and does a very nice job of aping the Coen style), but tells a totally different, but true, crime story. This one stars Billy Bob Thornton, and SQUEEEEEEEEEEE Martin Freeman (AKA Sherlock's boyfriend Watson). If the first seven minutes are any indication, FX has done it again, ya betcha!
