I heard for a year all the hype about this series with Kevin Costner. I watched two episodes this week. Just awful, contrived, and poorly-acted.
I don’t know what that series is trying to be but it fails in my opinion. Kevin Costner has always seemed a little weasel-like to me, which is surprising as he was best friends with Auggie Garrido. Trying to make him more surly and more caustic just sucks the wind out of the production.
Note: you wanna know why the movie “Wyatt Earp” failed with critics, IMO? The sound in that movie was atrocious. If you like westerns I advise you to watch it and tell me I’m wrong. One minute everyone is whispering, making you turn it up to level 28 just to hear the words. The next minute its 149 decibels, blowing your inner ear through your cranium. Not entirely Costner’s fault but I’m surprised he let it go to theaters with that awful sound.
