    So how does this work? Is it a show about Marge because if it is I'd love that. Since Marge is such a great heroine.

    Between this and Psycho what's the big push to adapt movies into tv shows?

    Hollywood has no ideas, all the good one apparently are being bought by cable companies, so they think hey this movie was good let's make a tv series out of it. In this case though it's looks like it was the creators of the movie who are behind it.

    Man, this has SO much potential to be beyond awesome if done right... which I trust it will be given the cast and network. Can't wait.

    Love it so far. Great mix of serious drama, suspense, and humor. I howled when the cops are interviewing Sam Hess's wife and the older idiot son takes the younger one out and starts hitting him with a hockey stick. Then the deputy sees it, runs out and does a flying tackle. I lost it at that point.

    This to me is going to be the new Breaking Bad. Simply must see TV. Looks like we simply follow Thorton's character from job to job around Minnesota area.

    I doubt the "True Story" aspect as the original movie claimed as such and was made up.

    I missed it, and I think it is something I would love. I have never watched the movie though.

    As someone said on another website, "it's so good to see crazy Billy Bob Thornton again."

    The end exchange between him and Colin Hanks was mind blowing.
