Last year US cable channel FX produced half a dozen or vignettes for Fargo, its new series the riffed on the original Coen brothers’ movie. They weren’t trailers as such, but little snippets that perfectly caught the mixture of farce and the macabre expertly conjured by the Coens. We put them all up last year and, with a second series in the offing, FX has done the same. The channel has produced eight little snippets that set the mood for series two, which starts in the US in October. After the jump stand by for murderous cuckoo clocks, severed hands in mail boxes and exploding maple syrup jars, all with a Dr John soundtrack crackling in the background. Perfection.
