McShane in idle, rest of the cast goes Altman
28 January 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Almost an acting clinic, this one.

With McShane's character in so much pain, the viewer is actually wincing, the rest of the cast gets a chance to shine.

Molly Parker and William Sanderson have a short scene which is written so sharply it is the centrepiece of the tale. Sanderson tries to con the lady who, already knowing of the con, tries to con him back. It is brilliant.

Brad Dourif, in many ways the "glue" (voice of reason) for the series, shows us a doctor who would do anything NOT to have to operate. Very rare these days. Dear God, please don't let me kill another person, he prays. Refreshing honesty.

Olyphant is delivering lines with his eyes, something he never does in Justified.

Everyone has a great old time here, in the sort of character free-for-all that the late Robert Altman would have enjoyed directing.

Only one missing was Robin Weigert, whose Calamity Jane (when present) is as far from Doris Day's as the earth is from the moon
