Did You Know?


Susanna Dickinson is shown being attacked by Native Americans (unaccountably dressed like the Dakota tribe) while in the custody of the Mexican army. Actually, she was returned peacefully to the Texians. Besides, the Tonkawa tribe that occupied the area were allied with the Europeans against the Cherokee, so it's highly unlikely that they would have attacked settlers. See more »


'Deaf' Smith: [Referring to Sam Houston and his wife] Now, nobody knows what happened between the two of 'em. But, I do know that Sam Houston's never spoken a word against her nor has he allowed one spoken in his presence. Now, what does that tell you?

Sepia is grossly overdone.
19 August 2015 | by billfitch7See all my reviews

. The first, and most obvious camera trickery, is the affectation of the sepia tone in the filming of this fantasy. Who is it that is responsible for this: the producer? Or the Director? Or maybe they left all the video-tape out in the sun for too long? Then again, maybe they bought all their film supplies from Vlad Putin and the Iranians? After the mighty Obama has finished 'negotiating' with Iran, the whole world is going to be sepia-coloured from plutonium exposure. And you Democrats that voted for Obomber: it's your fault! The powers that be in IMDb have decreed that I should write a minimum of 10 lines in this critique for it to be acceptable. Whew! What an order! Nearly there. Back to my review of the first episode of Texas Rising : it stinks. The sepia tone won't save it. Putting colour back in won't fix the story line. I won't watch any more episodes. Back to surfing channels : where's "Vikings"?. Now that's a truly wonderful series.
