…Western Series

"With so much TV premiering this fall, it's easy to forget about series that will be appearing later in the year. But this is one project you will most assuredly not want to miss — Godless. Steven Soderbergh has teamed up with his Out of Sight screenwriter Scott Frank to create a new limited series for Netflix set out west in the 1880s. Frank will also direct, with Soderbergh serving as executive producer. The seven-part series will tell the tale of an outlaw named Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels), whose band of murderous sundries are hunting down Roy Goode (Jack O'Connell), one of their own who turned on their brotherhood. As Roy hides out in a New Mexican mining town run mostly by women, he meets the tough widow Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery), and the two prepare alongside the rest of the town for what will be an ultimate showdown as Griffin's men arrive.

Matriarchal communities weren't such an uncommon historical phenomenon in the Real West, SeattleGamer. Women established and ran many of the businesses that formed the economic and social bedrock of frontier towns, such as saloons, and unsurprisingly, houses of ill repute, and were often prominent in civic bodies.

I watched the series in three days. I enjoyed it. I thought Jeff Daniels was perfect in the role of the Bible quoting villan.
