The relationship between Hearst and Aunt Lou is one of the more compelling parts of the show for me. I keep wondering if it will lead anywhere now that the inevitable death of Odel has occurred.
This slow build this season is really well executed. Nothing feels rushed, yet they are all compelling enough to keep the show interesting. With the Pinkerton's showing up, there is a palpable tension in almost every scene.
I'm also somewhat surpised to see the Wyatt Earp portayed as less than the heroic, upstanding lawman that almost every dramatic account paints him.
Finally, some Swearingen woop-ass looks to be taking place next week.
Because there are those who really enjoy it. Like the Missus and myself. I don't have time for sitcoms, but I love this one. Yes Dear and Two and a Half Men (along with According to Jim) are must-see TV here.
