AMC A western with machine guns. Eli has a Lewis gun in the hall closet and carries an M-1911 and a semi auto carbine.

Typical western fare for this time; Waaahhhh! The poor Mexicans! Waaaahhhh! The poor Indians!
Once you get past that, it's watchable.

It's Eli in 1849 as a captive of the Comanche and a big time cattle rancher in 1915. It jumps back and forth in time.

Couple of problems: The Comanche were not known for their wit and charm. Eli takes a liking to them. There is this little glitch in their relationship with them butchering his whole family and all, but Eli seems to have let that slide.

Then there's the math. Eli is at least 16 in 1849. That makes him 80+ in 1915. No way 1915 Eli is that old. He's riding and roping and breaking whores open like a shotgun. That alone stretches the suspension of disbelief factor to the breaking point.

80+ ... no problem. I know a guy that does that all the time at 81.

We all know Andy would never take advantage of an innocent young girl.

I watched the 1st episode free on Vudu. Comanches rape & murder. Mexicans steal & terrorize. Still I expect old Eli is going to be the big bad.

After shooting the turkey the very next thing young Eli did was reload. Attaboy.

Keep on watching. The Comanches and Mexicans have a perfectly good reason for raping and murdering and torturing.
