Netflix is gaining a reputation for excellent original content.  Godless looks like no exception.  The trailer for the six-episode limited series from Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank, is a gritty look at the old west with a new twist.  

Jeff Daniels, Kim Coates, Sam Waterson and Michelle Dockery star.   And, the twist is a pretty fun one.  All of the men in the town of La Belle have been killed in a mining accident.  Only the women are left to defend themselves when a gang of outlaws looking for a deserter lands all over their town… and the women are ready.

The trailer is pretty compelling and fast paced.  Nico Vega’s version of “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down),” plays as we see flashes of the chaos, grit and drama that we expect from the old west, from characters that don’t often get the chance to be seen and heard.  It looks like one part Deadwood and one part Unforgiven.  At the end of the trailer, the tag line reads, “Welcome to No Man’s Land.”  Bring it on.  I’m so ready for this show! 

Godless premieres on Netflix November 22nd.  Check out the trailer below, and beware.
