Alternate Versions

At the beginning of the broadcast version, there is a flashback to Buffalo Hump's youth, in which several Comanche tribes are called together to meet with American military officers in a tent, and are subsequently betrayed by the white men opening fire on them from outside. In the DVD, this scene is moved to the end of the first episode, while Buffalo Hump describes the incident to his fellow tribe members as they set out to raid Austin. See more »

A few good scenes
14 January 2008 | by confused4410See all my reviews

While I would agree that this is no Lonesome Dove, I did find it to have a few good scenes. The cowboy scene where they discuss what a genius is was one of them. However, the greatness of the original was how the characters were written and developed. I don't really see that with this installment, but keep in mind, the first part of Lonesome Dove paled in comparison to the 2nd and 3rd parts. I have always been a fan of Steve Zahn. It is never easy to take on a role made famous by someone else. I thought Zahn had many of the mannerisms that Duvall used down pat. I noticed the Gus finger wave and the head shake. However, the writing wasn't good enough to make me stop watching the actor and start paying attention to the story. I wouldn't call it a waste of time, since westerns are few and far between, but I wouldn't call it great TV either. I'll watch the rest.... if there isn't a game on.
