I still know a peach when I see one
20 December 2011 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

"I still know a peach when I see one"

Depth and character , extremely promising series..

The first thing that strikes me when I saw the pilot was the incredible choice of music , it carries the expectation of what is about to unfold perfectly. Acting is first grade as with most HBO productions and the cinematography superb, the only aspect greater than the series itself are the incredible animals and the romance the wicked mix of gambling and limits of animal performance has to offer.

Knowing the success of "Deadwood" I am willing to bet my gold stake that this series will deliver and cannot wait to see more.
