“The Redblanket Series”
On the one hand, the story addresses the complex lives of modern-day Indians. It deals with child custody, law-enforcement jurisdiction, and alcoholism--issues often in the news but rarely raised in dramas.
On the other hand, the storytelling (especially the directing and acting) is obvious if not heavyhanded. Larry Sellars and Elaine Miles are among the few who seem to be speaking naturally rather than reading from a script.
Rob's rating: 6.5 of 10.
P.S. The producers apparently haven't decided whether Joanelle Romero's character is named "Redblanket" or "Red Hawk."
