1923: SEASON ONE
Starring: Helen Mirren, Harrison Ford, Brandon Sklenar, Julia Schlaepfer, Jerome Flynn, Darren Mann, Brian Geraghty, Aminah Nieves, Michelle Randolph, Isabel May, and Timothy Dalton
Creator: Taylor Sheridan
I’m probably starting to sound like a broken record when I review Taylor Sheridan’s shows since they all have the same problem, most notably that they are overstuffed and underdeveloped, which means the viewer never gets truly invested in most of the storylines. Sadly, 1923 is Sheridan’s worst offender. Aside from the engaging Spencer Dutton (Brandon Sklenar) arc, the rest of the show is filled with virtually nameless Duttons doing random cowboy things. Even Helen Mirren and especially Harrison Ford are underused despite being the advertised stars of the show. Still, this could be a good show with better focus; hopefully, they find it next season.
