The Netflix mini-series Godless was so jam-packed, we had to break our review into two parts. Craig and Jake discuss the mysterious German woman (2:46), a Mary Agnes spinoff (5:17), how to define this series (6:21), the town of Blackdom (8:43), subverted expectations (13:42), Frank Griffin and the mythology of the Wild West (15:50), and the lead-up to the final gunfight (24:04).
Godless is a new limited series from Netflix. If you liked Westworld, would you definitely like Godless. It’s a subversive western with a diverse cast and strong, female characters. And we loved it. After making an exciting podcast announcement, Craig and Jake discuss the show’s marketing and the spectrum of female characters (2:56), Alice Fletcher and Roy Goode (22:50), and the gunfights (26:16). Stay tuned for Part II of our review next week.
An intriguing new miniseries popped up on Netflix recently. From the trailer, Godless seemed like a subversive new western with bold female characters. Is this a nice holdover until season two of Westworld? Does it live up to the billing? Craig gives a preview.
