Goofs

Several episodes show purebred Australian Cattle Dogs which did not exist in the USA in the 1880s. This breed wasn't brought to the USA from Australia until the 1950s or 80 years later. A mixed breed mutt would be more accurate to the old West. See more »

Godless

Scott Frank, the creator, of this western drama has got style. Not the Clint Eastwood kind. There is no hat-tilting or tobacco-chewing or loud guns fired in a bar; I would say, this is another achievement of the series, since it never has any drunk bar fights, no matter how tempting. It has presumably the panache of being in some James Bond-ish film. The spy like figurines float about or ride about in this series and sexiness is what oozes from them. To be fair, it is also gorgeous to look at; despite of few cringe worthy images, lately it looks like, these artists are working aplenty in details, just for the authenticity.

But the locations are easy on the eyes for sure. Also it grounds the field impeccably on screen. The live locations are pitched to us just as the ideas are, you don't need 3d glasses to feel like you are in it. Another advantage is how Frank is obsessed with stealing moments on one frame, that glorifies and celebrates this tale from all directions. Among many well spread out and three dimensional characters, Jeff Daniels ought to feel pretty with a juicy role like such.

And it is not just the generosity and cruelty of his character- such opposite sides of the coin is displayed in all the other characters too- but the philosophy he has in his pocket. He enters the room and he owns it and he leaves the room with whistle-blowing smile-plastering magnetic one-liners, you ought to feel happy like a four year old boy. Scott Frank has had a fair share of his moments in Godless, but what I love about the most, is how smoothly he transitions time in narration. Those very elements that helps him drive safe home, were trailed right in front of you, that went unnoticed by.

Fathers & Sons

It indeed is a kind chapter. Each character that we have been so repellent with or from gets to justify themselves showcasing their softer side as the stillness before the storm, grows dense. This is the part where Frank allows you to just enjoy the almost-a-weekend from all the hefty jibber-jabber.
