Reservation dogs

Anyone who yearned for greener pastures should be able to relate to this quirky, low-key, and very funny comedy, airing on FX on Hulu, about four Native teenagers looking for a quick score in a small rural Oklahoma town. This quietly quirky series nevertheless speaks loudly in its breakthrough portrayal of Indigenous talent both in front of and behind the camera, including all of the regular cast and each episode’s writer and director. First we come across this band of four – Bear (D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai), Elora (Devery Jacobs), Willie Jack (Pauline Alexis) and cheese (Lane factor) – as they hijack a truckload of gastronomically toxic junk food. Their goal in all their schemes is to earn enough jackpots to hit the road to the promised land of California, fulfilling the dream of a fifth pal who died a year earlier. Dogs’ the distinctive tone is even more evident in the second episode, in which they hang out all day at the local clinic, with Bear nursing injuries and a bruised ego after being jumped by a rival gang. Familiar character actor Zahn McClarnon (Longmire, Westworld) is a hoot as a local cop who can’t quite live up to his nickname, “Big.”
