With shows like Justified, Sons of Anarchy, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, FX has already become a basic cable refuge for critics and viewers who've grown tired of the formulaic shenanigans of the all-powerful Chuck Lorre.

This week, however, it seems that FX has decided to double down with the critically acclaimed content. First came word that the network had given the green light to a Coen Brothers-produced Fargo TV series loosely based on their Oscar-winning 1996 film, which is basically the best idea ever. Now there is word that the critically acclaimed Charlie Kaufman—writer of such cerebral films as Adaptation and Being John Malkovich—is developing a half-hour comedy called How and Why about a brilliant but socially inept nuclear physicist.

Obviously, we have no idea what the Kaufman show is going to look like just yet. However, this awesome Fargo supercut ought to give you a good idea of what that series will look like:
