This brings him to the middle of one of the biggest projects in US history, the building of the transcontinental railroad.

All of the natives in this series are depicted with eyebrows. Almost all the native peoples of North America routinely removed all facial hair as part of their cultural traditions - including eyebrows. See the 19th-century photographs by Edward S Curtis and others, and the paintings from life by Bodmer, Catlin, and Kurtz and you will find nobody with eyebrows. This and many other cultural elements were lost during the early Reservation era and today even Native American actors are sadly unaware of it. See more »
To Mr. Bohannan. He may be a son of a bitch, but he's *our* son of a bitch.

And that is a lot for me to say because I think Breaking Bad is the second best TV show ever, right after the Wire. Me and my wife both love this show, and it leads to great conversations after each episode, about American history, bible stories, western movies, why bohannon is such an attractive man, whatever. I think the show ran the risk of taking on way too much subject matter early on in the show (a common mistake in dramas nowadays), but they still include enough character development and detail to make the environment intimate and real, while still plowing through their dozen or more plot threads. I just hope AMC realizes that they are going to have to continue spending money on this show to keep it good, and that they don't slash the budget like they did Walking Dead (which pretty much stagnated that show).
