RESERVATION DOGS makes a welcome return to the “bear” necessities this week. I’ve stated in past reviews what makes DOGS so powerful is its ability to connect audiences to a world they don’t know anything about and make it all relatable.
In OFFERINGS, we follow Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis) on a journey into the past trauma the DOGS face from the loss of Daniel. Even though Daniel’s death was the main plot last year, it’s still following the group well into season two. And that makes sense. Death isn’t a closed door. It has ups and downs as you heal from the loss. That loss is magnified for this group as they are all teenagers trying to learn “the power they carry.”
Loss and growing up are the main themes in DOGS, and those themes come full circle in the penultimate episode of season two. It’s brilliant must-watch TV.
Two random asides that I LOVED from OFFERINGS:
- The philosopher aka hippie dude that took a bunch of acid advice:
- Be kind to that you’re closest to.
- Wear a good hat and a good pair of boots (socks and sandals are okay).
- How the magic of the “wizard story connects everything.
“Time after time,” a TV episode comes along that allows audiences to have a healing cry. I’m thankful that DOGS provided that “offering” this week.
It’s available on Hulu FX.
