dirty lawless
3 November 2015 | by abba149See all my reviews

Real very real in its practice of delivering bonanza format. Some severe efforts were made when writing this episode to run astray from the usual elements that bonanza ever presented. how upside down life really is. Very subtle aspects address today's problems with law in general. Even the editing of this episode is jumpy and sloppy feeling like you have left the normal confines of what was bonanza. A messy creep show leaving me wondering if I was watching a deep web video of sorts. I found myself wishing for whole thing to start making sense. So many lines we're drawn and then crossed. Then crossed again! Every character in this story is bias and corrupt to the core.
