The Good Lord Bird.


Recommended Posts

Anybody watching this show? Ethan Hawk plays John Brown. I'm really enjoying this. The young man who plays "Onion" is someone to watch. He may have a great career ahead of him.

Saw the first ep last week, but haven't watched ep2 yet.

I think Ethan Hawke is perfect as Brown, & agree the young man playing Onion is great as well. I'm intrigued how the story arc will play out. Interesting soundtrack too.

This is becoming one of my favorite shows to watch. It airs in the same timeslot as Lovecraft Country, but I find myself watching it live, then watching L.C. later.

We watched the second episode last night and both have been a hoot. I liked the writer's introduction and explanation for the somewhat comedic take on the subject. Looking forward to watching more.

Agreed. Fantastic mini-series. Hawke's performance had light & shade I'd never seen from him before.

That scene of Brown & Onion in the jail cell:

“Whatever you are, Onion, be it in full. You were made by your maker, and he loves you. And I love you, too. I don’t care what clothes you wear any more than I do the size of your shoes.”

"The Good Lord Bird doesn't fly in a flock. The voice of our spirit is gentle. Sometimes you have to fly alone to hear it"

Whew!!!
