C&L's Sat Nite Epic Theater: Lonesome Dove I (1989)

If you've never seen this, do catch it now... (open thread)

Part I of the groundbreaking 1989 television western series about two former Texas rangers, Gus McRae and Woodrow Call, as they head out for Montana and one last mighty adventure before the frontier closes forever. Larry McMurtry's muscular, lyrical writing and the note-perfect acting of Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones create an epic American western.

Enjoy! (Open Thread below...)
