Trivia

Both Jeffrey Donovan (Dodd Gerhardt) and Bruce Campbell (Ronald Reagan) were the main characters in the series Burn Notice (2007-2013) as best friends Michael Westen and Sam Axe. See more »

Goofs

The banner on the side of Reagan's bus reads "Reagan '80" with a single quote in front of 80 rather than an apostrophe, revealing this mistake to be the result of the automatic "smart quote" feature of modern word processing programs. See more »

Quotes

Dodd Gerhardt: Where you been?
Simone Gerhardt: I just met a-a friend.
Dodd Gerhardt: Mm. You think you're grown, is that it?
Simone Gerhardt: What?
Dodd Gerhardt: With your clothes and your hair and no bra? Like you know somethin' about the world? Being grown's got a price. Kid gets slapped when he's bad. When you're grown, you get the fist or the knife.

Death comes ridin' in
20 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Up until this point, I hadn't given a rip about the Blumquists; but in short order, their situation turns bleak and there's obviously no happy ending in this for them 'The Gift of the Magi', has all of the staging of a season finale; people dropping dead left and right (one of said killing sprees is juxtaposed with a patriotic campaign speech, tension from every corner; it's bad tidings all over. You know stuff's getting dark with Mike Milligan (Bokeem Woodbine) recites Jabberwocky as he's gunning up. I'm pretty sure I've never seen split-screen used so effectively to jack up the suspense. It's an exhilarating episode; violent, dreadful and really ups the ante.

I can't leave out Bruce Campbell, who more than holds his own as Governor Reagan, and I'm pretty sure this is just a one-off. But it was a great performance, nonetheless. IT fit right in with the excellent episode.

10/10
