Filmmakers take note; if you’re looking for an actor to hold up your
Western, call Steve Zahn. With that out of the way, the long awaited
prequel to the popular Lonesome Dove books-turned-mini-series debuted on
CBS on Sunday, January 13.

After eighteen years, the Pulitzer Prize winning mind of Larry McMurtry comes to life again in Comanche Moon, a powerful pre-Civil War journey across the Western frontier with the younger versions of Texas Rangers Gus McCrae (Steve Zahn) and Woodrow Call (Karl Urban) as they search for horse thieves (which includes Adam Beach) and a vicious
Mexican bandit (Sal Lopez) while doggedly hunting for legendary Comanche
war chief Buffalo Hump (Wes Studi).

It’s this three-story search that pushes Comanche Moon forward across its three night run. TV Review: 1st segment of Comanche Moon mini-series »»
