When Hank is speaking to the local Captain Cheney, he tells him that he served in the "Great War" in the liberation of France. "The Great War" generally refers to WWI, and the Liberation of France is a term used when speaking about WWII.

Hank would have to be referring to WWII; in an earlier episode he tells Lou a war story that is clearly from WWII, so to call it "The Great War" is erroneous. See more »

Narrator: And so, we come to perhaps the bloodiest chapter in the long and violent history of the Midwest region.

a new high standard for TV
27 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

Many 'big' movies include the current mega hit Star Wars spent so much money to produce but you can still feel something not fit with story with scenes. But this, all parts click. I do not why, even UFO I can accept. I can imagine after this the cast will appear in many new movies. Hoping 'Gerhardts' may appear in kind of Godfther with Jean Smart as patriarch

The problem after this is ... the new standard is there.. against what great show will be judged

thank you for all of you that spread that great show
