Damnation - USA Tuesday




Series Premiere

S01E01 - "Sam Riley's Body"
Tuesday - November 7, 2017
USA - 10/9c


Description:
More:
An epic saga about the secret history of the 1930's American heartland, Damnation centers on the mythic conflict and bloody struggle between big money and the downtrodden, God and greed, charlatans, and prophets. The pilot introduces Seth Davenport (Killian Scott), a man masquerading as a small town Iowa preacher in the hopes of starting a full-blown insurrection against the status quo. Focused on his mission, he is unaware that an industrialist tycoon has hired a professional strikebreaker named Creeley Turner (Logan Marshall-Green, Quarry) to stop the uprising by any means necessary. But unbeknownst to those around them, these two men already share a secret bloody past.

Re: Damnation - USA Tuesday

Man, this was really an excellent premiere.

I'm watching this and the only thing I can think of are the movies, Grapes of Wrath and Days of Heaven, one of the most visually stunning movies ever.

1930s, we're dealing with the beginning of the Depression. A time in our history when the majority of the people had nothing. The struggle between the have's and have not's.

Definitely got the beginning of organized Unions. Also, got a Communist vibe when listening to the Preacher.

And speaking of the Preacher, what a character. He's definitely running from something. We find out part of what he's running from is the apparent murder of the female Pinkerton agents husband.

OMG! What she did to start that riot was unforgivable. She must'a killed several people just to get things started.

From reading the synopsis of the series, I knew our main protagonists were brothers. "If you don't leave town, I'm going to kill you and drag you to Hell." Just damn!

Loved every character we were introduced to:
  • Sara Jones - Amelia Davenport - The Preachers wife
  • Melinda Page Hamilton - Connie Nunn - Female Pinkerton agent
  • Christopher Heyerdahl - Don Berryman - Town Sheriff
  • Chasten Harmon - Bessie Louvin - Prostitute (smartest person in town)

As I mentioned in the "What's On TV Tonight", thread, this is going to be a great series.

Re: Damnation - USA Tuesday

Someone, other than me, needs to watch this series. It's excellent!

I'm going to try and not spoil everything in this episode, but I'm got to talk about Bessie Louvin (Chasten Harmon). The smartest person in this whole series.

If you remember from the Pilot, she's the "black" prostitute who lives at Holden's brothel. She's also the only prostitute in town who can read. Remember again, the test Creely gave all the girls in the last episode.

We find out in this episode, she's the "love child" of Sheriff Don Berryman (Christopher Heyerdahl), and his black female lover.

After finding out about her father, she initially came to town to introduce her self to him. Obviously, he didn't accept her, so to get back at him, she decided to take up residence at the brothel.

Rereading my post has me wondering how you could tell anything by the poor grammar.

Isn't grandfatherhood grand?

Obviously with Cory living in NoCal, I don't get to see her as often as I'd like, but she's a pistol. You probably already know, she shares Boonian Androphile's birthday. I told him a year ago, I'll never forget his birthday from this point on. Oh BA!

I hadn't heard of this show until I saw your post. I've finally started watching it.

It's not a Western show but it does feel a a bit like Deadwood and Hell on Wheels. The Sheriff in this show played The Swede on Hell on Wheels and was fantastic in that role.

The actor playing the preachers brother is like a less menacing Tom Hardy.

Overall I like the show but I think they need to work on character development and making us care about their welfare.

Glad you followed me over here, FF. I'm also glad you enjoyed the first couple of episodes.

I definitely see a lot of character development in the weeks to come. We found out they're brothers, from a different mother. What happened there?

And, my favorite character so far, Bessie Louvin (Chasten Harmon), how in the HELL did she get so smart?

I have to keep reminding myself, we're dealing with the Depression era. Which helps me accept the Creely Turner's character having a 9mm automatic pistol.

I was wondering who he reminded me of.

! You're exactly right.
