you won't like the answer.
- the much-vaunted Ian McShane performance (as the historic Al Swearengen) lives up to its reviews--and more.
- surprise! Timothy Olyphant, playing the historic Seth Bullock, who grew up a century and more later to become Raylan Givens on Justified. That was a bonus.
- surprise! Powers Boothe, playing one of the baddies.
There are more baddies than you can shake a stick at. When Raylan killed a Sioux in a particularly brutal scene, I turned to the historian and said, "I don't know if I can keep watching this if it turns out I hate everyone." But it's such a good show, the characters keep surprising you. And the writing is amazing: the most scruffy, profane almost-Shakespearean dialogue possible to imagine.
I messaged my son's friend, who loved Deadwood and even let us hold on to his DVDs until it was ridiculous.
I suppose I ought to note that I have not yet watched one actual Christmas movie, for whatever that's worth.
