The show has the Cherokee using stirrups. The plains Indians did not use stirrups. They were, therefore, limited to operating as light cavalry. See more »
I Love this show. Best I've seen in a long time. I had no interest in a following a western, in fact was put of by genera, but decided to give it a try anyway as the trailers seemed pretty good.
The characters are complex, the cinematography outstanding, and the shows plot lines are solid.
I love the soundtracks... the fact that you seldom if ever hear "country music", but instead Dixieland, blues, folk and rock sometimes layered over scenes that you may not immediately equate with the music you are hearing and as a result make the scene more memorable.
Overall, each episode is a feast to the eyes and ears. Yes, the material may not be mind shattering, but that I think is not what one should expect from a western.
It has picked a period where it was able to mash up a lot of different "western" inspirations... railroad, civil war, calvary, Lynch mobs, cowboys and Indians, etc. and has tied them together very well.
Can't wait for season 2.
