Did You Know?


Wu is shown drawing a picture, and it includes the characters for "Chinese People". The middle character he uses is in the simplified Chinese form that is used in modern (Communist) China, which was not adopted until the 1950s. See more »

One of the best...minor spoilers
18 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Just a quick review on this one. Seeing Al not knowing what to do, Hurst slowly taking over the camp, Cy slowly losing more and more power, Jane and Jonie connecting and Bullock being loyal to the newly arrived Earp boys is a delight and one of my favorite Episodes. The ending scene with Al singing alone in the Gem just make this one. I know its nearly coming to an end, and this makes me sad because i really liked that show seeing it the first time at 2014 and not being a western fan. As always i find Timothy Olifant extremely...stiff, shall we say, but even he could convince me this time. Seeing Al alias Ian Mcshane not knowing what to do kills me, but gives a new perspective on his character as well.
