As far as this show, I'm gonna check it out. I like Martin Freeman a lot but it's so weird seeing him do a northern American accent when I'm so used to his real accent.
The Coen brothers are probably the most rewatch rewarded directors in all of film. There are some [no country, o' brother, raising AZ] that I loved right away, but there isn't one of theirs I didn't come to adore. They set such a mood in each film, that they go up against expectations on first viewing, but once you are accustomed to the rhythms, everything SINGS.
As for the TV show, haven't seen a 4 color pen in 20 years.
And what an effing class, go to imdb to see the full cast. It has everyone.
