HUNTING is officially the slowest episode yet of RESERVATION DOGS. I was hoping for the plot to advance a bit more with Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis), her dad (Jon Proudstar), and of course, the backstory of Daniel (Dalton Cramer). But, instead, audiences are treated with a near A24-plotless episode, where the mystery and style are more important than providing answers.
With that said, I am glad to report that the Tall Man, aka Bigfoot, makes an appearance. While it’s fun seeing the Tall Man lurking in the shadows, the actual answers around him are left in the background. Regardless of the hit show being renewed for season two, I wanted answers. Are Daniel and the Tall Man connected? But, instead, the show decides to do a vague book edition without answering anything outside of setting things up for future episodes. And, it’s a damn shame since Willie Jack is one of, if not the most, beloved characters on RESERVATION DOGS.
The latest episode is available on Hulu FX.
