Lawmen Bass Reeves S01E04 720p WEB-DL x265
At the time of writing we only have the first three episodes to wet our appetite but despite a fairly slow start this is demonstrating some promise! 🤞 We pick up our story towards the end of the American Civil War with Bass seen with the confederate army! The tide of the war is turning in favour of the union so Bass accompanies his master back home to Texas. There is a little "disagreement" over a card game and pretty soon Bass is on the move again - no spoilers here. Eventually we see Bass enlisted to help a deputy track down a wanted man and although things don't go quite to plan Bass is recruited to be a Deputy US Marshall for the state of Arkansas. And so it begins... David Oyelowo plays Bass and does so with a strong and quiet dignity and is very well cast. There are some great supporting roles from Donald Sutherland to Dennis Quaid as well as Bass' family. As you'd expect from a Taylor Sheridan show there is plenty of beautiful scenery on screen as well as an excellent musical score. I believe this was originally penned as an 1883 spin off and they are very similar in style and story pacing. New episodes drop every Sunday so hopefully this series will continue to develop and grow as it rolls along but so far so good.
