  • Godless

    CREATOR: Scott Frank, Steven Soderbergh
    CAST: Luke Robertson Rio Alexander Joleen Baughman


    Sure, there was Westworld in 2016, but fans of the Western genre feel it's more a scifi than a Western. Netflix's Godless is going to make this right, and might be the most anticipated show of 2017. It's set in the 1880's and is about Frank Griffin played by Jack Daniels, an outlaw terrorizing the American West, who is hunting for his former partner. Cult director Steve Soderbergh is one of the creators. Read more

  • Vegas

    CREATOR: Nicholas Pileggi, Greg Walker
    CAST: Dennis Quaid Michael Chiklis Carrie-Anne Moss


    1960's Vegas is not a cosy place. When a casino worker is killed, a local rancher is called for help. A battle between good and evil forces follows, loaded with thrilling action scenes, rampant horses and cathartic moments. Vegas is not the best show in the genre, but not a redundant one either.
