Its a damn shame Season 4 is so far away but I’m totally psyched. The backdrop and the story so far (plus Chris Rock) all seem great. I see there’s already a lot of speculation that a young Mike Milligan will somehow be involved and while that would be sweet I’m not totally sold. However, I’ve convinced myself that we will see the reappearance of the Undertaker. He already seems pretty old (maybe Hank’s age?) back in 1979 and with his only line he refers to Mike as an eggplant, a common slur originating from the Italian word moulinyan. Considering the Italian mafia are major players this upcoming season, it wouldn’t surprise me if we saw just how the Undertaker got his nickname. (wouldn’t be surprised if he was a WWII or Korean vet either.) Total speculation obviously but all the pieces are there.

So, I finally started watching Fargo the TV Show.

First of all, I count the Coen’s Fargo as my third favorite Coen Brothers movie (after The Big Lebowski & No Country for Old Men) and it’s one of my favorite 90s movies.

Why didn’t I ever start watching the TV Show?

I don’t know. Really. I don’t know.

So a week ago my friend borrowed me his Netflix Account (because I wanted to start with Breaking Bad, a TV show I also never watched) and then I stumbled across Fargo and gave it a try.

The pilot absolutely blew me away. The cast is fantastic, the atmosphere, the humor, the timing, the dialogue, the violence and the intrigue is fantastic. It’s funny that in terms of tone and atmosphere the Show really feels like the movie and also has some very similar “homages” in its setting and characters, but still tells a unique and captivating story in itself.

I could binge watch the Show since it’s on Netflix, but I want to experience it the way many others experienced it, so I’m just gonna watch one (maybe two) episodes a week.

I was rewatching season 1 today, and I love the scene in episode 7 where Malvo takes on the Fargo operation and you get sound and a camera moving, but no real visuals.

I also recently played through one of the classic Lucas Arts Adventure Games. There’s a classic sequence in the game (originally with no sound, but this is the special edition) where the protagonist Guybrush Threepwood breaks into the governor’s mansion and you get a similar sequence.

I like to think the writers of season 1 were inspired by this game, but perhaps there is another legendary movie or other filmed scene that uses a similar concept.

Either way, it’s a great way to allow the viewer (or player) to experience a thrilling scene on a budget and to let their imagination take over.
