GREAT SHOW!!!, REFRESHING TO SEE NATIVE ACTORS ON TV
26 August 2004 | by (NJ) – See all my reviews

I live in the US in NJ, so this show was never on TV here, but when i saw the advertisement for it on my comcast on demand, i immediately went to see what it was about. I was so happy to finally see something about natives that didn't have to do with annoying stereotypes, or the "white vision" of what we are, and unlike most things on TV about natives, it takes place in the present on a reservation, instead of that "in the old days" documentary type things, which seem to imply that we've just faded away. Anyway back to what i was saying, I loved this show, I have to admit the first few episodes were'nt that great, but i kept watching for the reason that it was a modern native show, and I'm glad i did, once you get past the first 3 episodes the show gets better and better, especially because of Tamara Podemski ^_^ , also from episode 7-17 they bring back one of my favorite native actors Adam Beach. The thing was, the show was a continuation of the movie, "Dance me outside", which i had never seen, I've just finished watching the last episodes of "The Rez"...which i wish could've kept going for a lot longer than it did, and now i've bought the movie, and am going to watch it! I recommend this show to all, but especially other American Indians who want to see a refreshing change to how we are usually portrayed on TV and in movies.
