I read this one in english years ago and I think it’s time to read my swedish copy one more time. So many tragic stories but I think it’s important to know what happened back then. One of my favourites and a book I recommend. I have read lots of books about Native Americans over the years but want to read more. Any suggestions? #burymyheartatwoundedknee#goodread
Godless is a limited series on Netflix, and one of the best tv shows I’ve seen recently.
I’m almost certain some of the makers from Game of Thrones created this because it has similar elements. For one thing the pacing is slow, but it works to the shows advantage. This allows the audience to know each and every one of the characters before the big climax, so that you are able to care deeply about them when their in peril. That is great writing! What’s also great is that not much action even occurred throughout much of the show, yet I was thoroughly intrigued all way through due to my favourite element of the show... the characters!
The characters are without a doubt the best part of this show, and like Game of Thrones, they’re etched on my mind. I really appreciate that this is a female empowering show without making the female characters flawless and perfect in every way as opposed to the male characters who serve only as foils. Each of the female characters are very complex and are all compelling, the stand outs being Michelle Dockery and Merritt Wever, who are both mesmerising in both performance and character arcs. This show has some of the best female characters I’ve seen since Ellen Ripley and Arya Stark. O’Connel is compelling as a protagonist, with layers to make you care for him. Scoot McNairy is also a stand out, with a likeable and three dimensional character that you easily root for.
But the stand out is Jeff Daniels, who might have given his best performance. I already respected the guy a lot as an actor, but this show blew me away with what he can do as an intimidating Wild West killer- who knew Harry from Dumb And Dumber could be so scary?!
Though the story may seem simple, it’s the greatly-written characters and the fantastic actors that play them that carry the show, to make for an incredibly complex and compelling experience. I highly recommend this to anyone who is fan of a show that studies its characters to every detail and keep you interested from beginning to end.
