Quotes

[first lines]
Frank Griffin: [walking up with a horse] Beautiful country, ain't it? Good Book says prosperity is the path to godliness. That if God wanted man to be poor, he wouldn't have surrounded him with so much bounty.
Roy Goode: [sitting on a log] Which Good Book are you referring to?
Frank Griffin: You sure know how to pick fine horseflesh, son. If you get to reading someday, you might come across a fellow named Xenophon.
Roy Goode: Xenophon? Come on, Frank. Why don't you just admit you make this stuff up?

Godless

Scott Frank, the creator, of this western drama has got style. Not the Clint Eastwood kind. There is no hat-tilting or tobacco-chewing or loud guns fired in a bar; I would say, this is another achievement of the series, since it never has any drunk bar fights, no matter how tempting. It has presumably the panache of being in some James Bond-ish film. The spy like figurines float about or ride about in this series and sexiness is what oozes from them. To be fair, it is also gorgeous to look at; despite of few cringe worthy images, lately it looks like, these artists are working aplenty in details, just for the authenticity.

But the locations are easy on the eyes for sure. Also it grounds the field impeccably on screen. The live locations are pitched to us just as the ideas are, you don't need 3d glasses to feel like you are in it. Another advantage is how Frank is obsessed with stealing moments on one frame, that glorifies and celebrates this tale from all directions. Among many well spread out and three dimensional characters, Jeff Daniels ought to feel pretty with a juicy role like such.

And it is not just the generosity and cruelty of his character- such opposite sides of the coin is displayed in all the other characters too- but the philosophy he has in his pocket. He enters the room and he owns it and he leaves the room with whistle-blowing smile-plastering magnetic one-liners, you ought to feel happy like a four year old boy. Scott Frank has had a fair share of his moments in Godless, but what I love about the most, is how smoothly he transitions time in narration. Those very elements that helps him drive safe home, were trailed right in front of you, that went unnoticed by.

Shot The Head Off A Snake

The birth of the mentor and mentee equation of Daniels and O'Connell is explored here and the previous chapter was titled, Father and Sons. That is not the only surprising element, the explanation of how each track is having a repel effect on the others, is explained in detail, ergo a bit less engaging.
