    Default The English

    The English. On Amizon Prime.
    6 Episodes limited series starring Emily Blunt.

    It is set in the late 1800s post civil war about the settling of the west. Focuses around Wyoming and Nebraska.

    I'm about half way through. It is great. Sort of like a Cormac McCarthy novel. You can't watch it while scrolling your phone though. You have to pay attention to names and places.

    Best thing I've seen in a long while
    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
    -Samuel Adams

    Even better, fiber. I preemptively downloaded Netflix's and Amazon prime's entire libraries for when the lights go out. Even recorded a few choice soccer matches just for you. We're set.

    I watched the show in a day, when I was down with the Flu. Enjoyed it and would recommend it being worth watching.

    I still can't believe people willingly watch soccer.
    “Duck hunting gives a man a chance to see the loneliest places …blinds washed by a rolling surf, blue and gold autumn marshes, …a rice field in the rain, flooded pin-oak forests or any remote river delta. In duck hunting the scene is as important as the shooting.” ~ Erwin Bauer, The Duck Hunter’s Bible, 1965

    Excellent. Psychedelic Western, like Johnny Depp in "Dead Man".

    Thanks to OP for the heads up. Starting watching it tonight

    Pretty good show so far. My family's history on my dad's side traces back to the Indian nation in Oklahoma.
    This is my dad's great, great grandfather, Cyrus Harris.
    Lucy Harris was Cyrus's daughter with his 3rd wife.
    My great grandmother was the daughter of Lucy Harris and she lived with us for a few years back in the 70s and the story's she told growing up as a girl were amazing.

    My mom has a copy of Cyrus's portrait hanging in her house
