Netflix released a trailer for its upcoming series “Godless” and it appears to be nothing short of incredible.

The plot of the show, according to the Netflix description, is: “It is a fearful thing, to love what death can touch. Godless follows the fates of Frank Griffin and his murderous gang… of Roy Goode, the member who turned against them… and of La Belle, the town full of women who must defend themselves when they get caught in the crossfire. Welcome to Godless country.”

The show stars Jeff Daniels, Jack O’Connell and Michelle Dockery.


Does this look like must watch television, or does this look like absolutely must watch television? The last Western style show, not including “Westworld,” that was pretty solid was FX’s “Justified.” Of course, that Western took place in modern times.

The plot also seems very interesting. I’m sure there will be plenty of hardo loser dudes who complain about the female cast, but everybody knows there’s nothing better than a woman who knows how to use a gun. Sign me up.

The series will be released November 22.
