I was on quite the roller coaster with this show. At first I resented all the time spent on Frank and the cliche outlaw stuff, and wanted more time with the ladies. Then I began to appreciate the way the two story threads came together and got seriously invested in a few characters and relationships. And then I was pretty disappointed with how it all ended.
I agree with much of what’s been said here, and I’ll add that what left me unsatisfied is that I didn’t feel like any characters got a real arc that tracked emotionally beginning to end. Whitey dies and his story with Louise goes nowhere. Bill goes wandering for half the show and accomplishes and learns nothing. Mary (Maggie?) gets back together with her girlfriend but we don’t even see them have a real conversation. And Roy and Alice, two traumatized, lonely people, one in search of a family and one reluctant to let anyone in, make a connection and seem to realize they fit together and offer what the other needs. They eliminate the big bad obstacle, Alice is ready to sell the ranch and leave, Roy has a big bag of money and an invitation to California, and instead of setting off together they just go their separate ways because ...it’s a western and it has to end with a man alone on a horse? I honestly don’t know, that made zero sense to me. Am I supposed to be rooting for Alice to marry Bill? Because if I was the show did not do the work to convince me that’s a good ending for her. I wanted her and Truckee to have Roy, which is what I thought the show spent 7 episodes building to, so I guess I missed something.
I don’t think this is getting a second season, so I guess I’ll just have to rewrite the endings in my head.
