Oh, “deer,” that was unexpected. The latest RESERVATION DOGS is an entire episode done as a ride-along with Big (Zahn McClarnon) and Cheese (Lane Factor). Last week, audiences were treated to Bear’s daddy issues, and this week we learn about Big’s origin story.
What makes this episode an improvement is the sheer randomness of a ride-along with Big. From his “Batman Begins” like origin to why he’s a good person, the latest addition of RESERVATIONS DOGS has a lot to say, without saying much at all.
The Deer Lady (Kaniehtiio Horn) does make a unique appearance. And her origin in Native American urban legends is significant, but her presence in the show is slightly different. Without spoiling what she’s doing with Big, let’s just say Redbones song, “Come and Get Your Love,” is not just her theme; it’s also her calling.
As Big and Cheese “walk in beauty,” the lesson is simple – “be good, and fight evil.” If you can do that, you’re winning per RESERVATION DOGS.
It’s available on FX.
