Yeah if I had a complaint, it would be the brutality against the Indian girls. I’m sure he’s portraying it correctly but this last episode was rough to watch in that regard.

Yea they should have had her escape in ep 2.  Last episode we were like "damn the abuse and self defense attacks AGAIN?"  It's like her third time rising up against the nuns and being punished...we get it.  Looks like her escape story will be brutal also...

But the contrast of a white woman nekked in Africa made the episode better (is that wrong??).

My God Helen Mirren's character is my great-grandmother.  She came to Texas from the hills of Tennessee in a covered wagon sometime in around 1899.  Other than Mirren's ranch being about 1 million times larger than my great-grandmother's land outside of Comanche, TX, the rest of her story and personality is extremely similar.  I actually shed a tear last night thinking about my Mama Phillips having to say goodbye to her only son in 1941 as he headed to the PTO.

She's my grandmother. Came to Texas from Mississippi in a covered wagon in 1889. One of the scenes where they are feeding the stock it struck me how much looks like her.

I don't want to sidetrack the thread too much, but yes.  The scene where she went out in the field to cry so as not to show weakness around others was spot on.  She was that odd combo of incredibly sweet, but also very stoic.

My great-great grandmother drove a mule cart from Indianapolis to Buffalo TX after my great-great grandfather was murdered by a man he sold a horse to for $100, who bludgeoned him to death instead of paying for it.  (The horse thief/murderer was shortly thereafter hanged on the courthouse lawn).

That murder and her relocation to Buffalo is the reason I was born in Texas many decades later.

She looked nothing like Helen Mirren.

Amazingly hot actresses in movies/tv show aren't even a dime a dozen, as there's countless of them, but this Alex chick is special.

I mentioned in my first post about her I'd have married her on the spot.

Glad to see Spencer clearly felt the same way.

It's not just her looks, there's something sultry about the way she talks and her intelligence and attitude are charming as hell.

I do believe she's perfect.

I don't know if it matters except maybe to show her talent, but she was born in Bellevue WA so the accent is fake

My maternal grandmother's grandmother, born 1878 in Sabine, Texas.

Looks like she could about fit the bill. Her daughter, my mother's grandmother, had long, nearly ankle length hair that was always done up in a bunch when my mom was growing up. Her cousins told her mammaw NAAL was a witch when she had her hair down, which was obviously true.

Anyhow, continuing with stories about hard af ancestors, my mom's grandfather helped his aunt move from Panola County in East Texas to Childress because the drier climate was supposed to be good for their asthma or something. Anyhow, he helped them move out there and build a dugout or whatever and then made his way back to Panola County on horseback. He was twelve.

Yeah man I had to walk away. I’m like this is too fucked for me 

You had to walk away?  You know it’s not real, right?  I love this show. Moreso than 1883. Problem is I have to jerk every time I finish an episode.

This has been so eye opening.  I was raised Catholic. I still go to church. I’m no Bible banger or judgy or give any Fs about anything. But learning this and watching this show and spending more time reading about these “schools” I’ve moved along to a nondenominational service in the weekends.  I don’t care how long ago that was or if any apologies were ever give. Those were gd children
