Lorne Malvo, Billy Bob Thornton's sinister hitman in "Fargo" (9 p.m. April 15, FX; 3.5 stars out of 4), doesn't have doubts. He doesn't ask himself the question posed on a poster in the FX series' first episode: "What if you're right and everyone else is wrong?" His answer, unequivocally, is "I'm always right.

Thornton is phenomenal in the role, stealing every scene he's in and making "Fargo" a captivating pleasure from the moment he appears.
