Thanks, Michael. It was your review of Season 1 which intrigued me enough to purchase the first season on Blu as a complete blind buy.  What a rollicking good ride that turned out to be! While really disappointed that Haas Sleiman isn't back for Season 2, I can't wait for the opportunity to get caught up with the craziness in Jackie's life. I picked up my copy today at Target for the terrific price of $24.99.  My wife--who took quite a while to warm up to the program--is also looking forward to returning to the material now.  She had issues with some of the darker themes running throughout the show. We'll be getting started very soon! 

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

We savored all 12 episodes.  Oh, that there would be more!


My wife has a thing for main characters that one can like.  "Heroes" if you will.  She's still not very sure what to make of Jackie.   I think we are both taken by this character of Jackie Peyton and the decisions she makes and what motivates her.

As I mentioned above, my wife took quite a while to warm up to Season 1.  But she agrees that it is very well-written and acted and appears to be hooked.  In particular, she likes Merritt Wever's work as Zoey.


That last scene (and you could say the entire last episode) is enough to blow one's mind.  Just when you think you've kinda got figured out where the writers are taking things...WHAM!  And not in the cheap ways imaginable (sudden car crash, for example, turning events on their ear)...but by having characters simply react in ways you would not predict.
