    My wife and I just finished Godless on Netflix. A seven-episode, Western mini-series that goes up as one of the best shows we've watched all year. A multi-character ensemble starring Jack O'Connell (Unbroken) and Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), this is a serious, fast-paced and brutal story out of old New Mexico. I liked both of the leads (why are more and more US TV shows using Brits?) but, alas, to me the screen could not escape the power of (the very evil) Jeff Daniels whenever he was in a scene.

    I can struggle with these multi-episode dramas sometimes...too much time spent dragging out a good story line (my wife thinks the opposite). This show flew by. Highly recommended.

    We just finished episode five. Love it, and we don't normally like Westerns.

    No spoilers, but the conclusion episode is really good: it's predictable but also satisfying.

    My goodness this is fantastic. Hard to explain how or why this makes me feel like it does. The violence is one thing. But the idyllic beauty and intimacy of everything else, from the settings, to the relationships, to the simplicity of things like people who don't learn to read until adulthood, or the rite of passage of a young boy breaking a horse...there's a level of patience and pace to that life and to the presentation here that for some reason just makes me feel peaceful. I love it.
