Four Native American delinquents in a small city on the southeast corner of Oklahoma (fictional) deal drugs, steal cars, commit drive-by shootings, shoot guns at an empty house, and confront other obstacles. They also have to deal with their screwed-up lives at home. Their parents/families are alcoholics or druggies and are physically and verbally abusive to them. One of the teens dreams of going “off-reservation” in California but his friends want to stay because they have family responsibilities such as taking care of their brothers and sisters. But their dreams seem to be on hold now that one of the gang members was shot dead by police a year prior (this episode begins with a flashback).
Who should watch this series?
Reservation Dogs are not for everyone. The subject matter is quite dark and the characters are fairly unlikable but the show does have some entertainment value. It’s an episodic mix of crime, drama, comedy, adventure, and a little humor for anyone who can stick with the series. However, it will likely appeal mainly to 15-24-year-old urban Native American people who are interested in criminal matters and gang life.
My ratings and reviews about this series:
I gave this a 7 out of 10. There is some good acting and directing here but the overall storyline is fairly predictable. (Also there’s not much of a budget for FX to work with.) The main problem with the series is that it feels like it’s a bit too long at eight episodes and I found myself getting bored by episode 4. There are some good moments like when they steal a car or shoot guns but I think it could have been made better by being shorter, possibly combined into four to five episodes instead of eight.
I hope they make more episodes because I think this show has potential. It could be better than some of the other Native American shows out there but they also could make it uninteresting by not making it interesting enough. This is an interesting look into Native American life and if they could use some more “side-stories” and make the main storyline more exciting, then this show would be amazing
