Whether you’ve seen the Coen Brothers’ film with the same name or not, there’s little one can do to assert that the FX miniseries Fargo is going to be anything short of amazing. Between having a cast worth getting excited for — Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Bob Odenkirk, Glenn Howerton, Allison Tolman, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, and Colin Hanks (just to name a few) — and a more than intriguing premise, we feel confident in declaring that this one’s going to be a favorite of many. Why, just look at these 4 new videos about the series and try to believe otherwise. It’s not a remake of the movie, dagnabbit!

It’s self-explanatory, really.
