Val Kilmer had to undergo over an hour of makeup, facial hair and wig placement each day for his role. He elected to shave his head into a Mohawk to make it easier to glue the wig onto his scalp.] See more »
The location for the Austin set typifies the Hollywood image of Texas being dry and filled with scrub. Actually, Austin is very green and located in valley with numerous rivers, with an average humidity of only 4 millibars less than Honolulu, and has wild bamboo growing in creeks. See more »

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 »
I must have seen a different version than the first person on the user comments section.
It's really, really good...Steve Zahn and Karl Urban are great together. Val Kilmer's character is much like he was in the novel, although the emphasis is on Gus and Call and the Comanches. We get to see what happened with Call and Newt's mother as well. I won't spoil it, but it gives a lot of insight into Call's character.
All the actors did a really convincing job. Steve Zahn had the biggest challenge, I thought, to follow Robert Duvall! There's a lot of action, humor, tragedy. It's got something for everyone. I can't wait until it airs, my family are all jealous I got to see it early!
