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.
