Did You Know?

Goofs

When Merrick removes the lens cap while taking a photo of the cavalry officers; he loses his grip of the lens cap and it remains in front of the lens. Since photographs taken in this way required a long exposure a mistake like this would have resulted in ruined picture. The picture that Merrick later laments about and hopes to re-shoot shows no evidence of the lens cap that was in the way earlier. See more »

"What kind of man have I become, Saul?" (dialog) (Seth Bullock)
31 December 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

... and Saul replies, "I don't know. The day ain't $#%^$# over..." Film historians of the future will not only sing the praises of Tim Olyphant's work in film and TV, but, I assure you, they will not fail to mention how audiences of the era (that would be ... us) failed to fully appreciate him.

The same cannot be said of David Milch who produced and wrote this excellent series. I am in awe of the way Milch introduced Olyphant off the top of the series and then kept him in reserve until the 12th episode -- the same way you keep your rook back in a chess game -- until here, in this instalment, he is literally unleashed.

Let me be clear. The writing is excellent. The acting is excellent. The direction and staging excellent. But even against such strong odds, Olyphant at the top of his craft can steal the entire episode to the point that it just seems to be all about him.

And you know what? It is.
