YMMV: Lonesome Dove
  • Awesome Music: The score by Basil Poledouris which won an Emmy.
  • Complete Monster: Blue Duck is a half-breed Indian who prowls the wilderness outside the towns. Feared by all who know him, Blue Duck is a slaver who kidnaps those he can and sells them for a tidy sum, especially women. Blue Duck kidnaps the Hooker with a Heart of Gold Lori and allows his companions to rape her on a daily basis, splitting her between his Indian and cowboy followers. When one of his men is gut shot, Blue Duck refuses to let any other put the henchman out of his misery and even allows his Indian followers to castrate and scalp him, with barely concealed amusement. Blue Duck murders several other people, including a luckless child who crosses his path and after his initial escape, he is found in a jail later sentenced to hang. Unwilling to die like that, Blue Duck seizes a guard and throws the two of them out of the window, unwilling to die without taking someone with him.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Basil Poledouris' score.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The water moccasins.
  • Special Effects Failure: The storm in the first part, especially the lightning effects.
  • Tear Jerker: Too many to list.
