Woke Free Modern Western
Only watched 2 episodes with someone who really likes the series. I'm not into cop dramas or Westerns, although I do enjoy them. So if that's your cup of tea, you might rate this 4 or 5 stars. The main character is a Clint Eastwood type and even says "hey punk" but unlike the wild rule breaker trope he is very by the book. There was no exposition and the pilot was insanely fast paced. In between action they will hint at the relationships between the characters which is a huge bonus for me. None of the "hello, sister" lazy writing I despise. You're left guessing and wondering why he was absent from work for a year until 25 minutes in. Another plus: all the characters have depth, and the actors are all attractive. There's a buddy cop element between an Indian on the reservation and the protagonist which includes anti-White quips. But they are realistic and charming. Comfy "Rush Hour" dynamic. The downsides? The low budget makes some scenes feel like a soap opera and the acting can be subpar for the side characters. Also, it's not entirely sequential. There are major plot lines that weave throughout the seasons but most of the episode's story is quarantined. Like most cop shows they tie all the loose ends up in a neat little bow after each episode. But although I only watched 2 episodes, I could tell that the A Plot & B Plot usually have related themes with character development. For example, a dead daughter investigation will be paralleled with the father-daughter relationship of the main characters. So I can see why people get hooked on it. (There's a will-they-or-won't-they romance that comes on later too.) Still, a lot of filler. And there's 6 seasons. I just wasn't enamored enough to want to commit that much time to it. But I definitely recommend the show, and it's exactly the type of thing we should be supporting.
