Anything with Sam Elliott in a Stetson and I'm in.
My new Flash Fiction blog. All my own work
I am not young enough to know everything.
1st 2 episodes and Im in for the season, magnificent unsurprisingly Elliott makes the show, 1st 5 minutes he doesn't say a word but you totally get the emotional depth of the character and it shows the brutality of the people, the civil war the have been through and the west in general and boads well for the series oh and the minute or so 2nd episode cameo from SPOILER:
Tom Hanks somehow completely made sense
Episode 3 & 4 continue to excel and the cast really are growing into it, not only the main family and I think the daughter in particular will be the breakout star of the show, she has it all looks attitude serious acting chops for one so young and her narrative on the show is poetic, this ChicagoPD and the Blacklist are my 1st 3 watches of the week and the moonlight sonata during the river crossing was beautiful
Episode 5 and its just such a beautifully scripted and crafted show with its score that works perfectly for this western that switches effortlessly from brutal to beautiful effortlessly, the cast are nailed on and while the first 4 episodes set it up wonderfully this one was just perfect, once again I must mention the narration which is almost Shakespearean in its beauty and complexitySPOILER:
I knew right away this wasn't the show to get overly invested in the characters as they were falling like no ones business but the daughters new bf biting the bullet was heart breaking, shocking and beautifully done and her reaction was perfect, that is a hell of a way to grow up
