Wonderfully paced new western drama
13 August 2003 | by jdnbonneauSee all my reviews

It is so nice to encounter a drama in which no one sees the need for a breakneck pace and/or a half dozen separate threads in every episode. Episodes of Peacemakers don't whiz by and leave you breathless; they allow you time to fully digest what you're seeing and to appreciate the attention to detail, and to history, in the show. Given that Tom Berenger's a history buff and his wife is one of the producers, it comes as no surprise that the details are right. Peacemakers rings true.

Although the inevitable comparison will be to CSI, there's a little Columbo here, a smattering of Matt Dillon, and nods to any number of other detective and western offerings of the past. The acting is fine by all; there's a realism in the writing that allows you to forget you're watching actors on a set. And it's a real treat to see Berenger every week. Always a solid performer, we haven't seen nearly enough of him in recent years.

One has to wonder whether the innovations in forensics during this period in history will be sufficient to fuel Peacemakers beyond its initial 8-episode run. But I sure hope so. And even if they don't, perhaps the societal and cultural changes occurring during this period in American history can be interwoven into the stories to keep things going. The innovations in gallows design depicted in the second episode were fascinating, but so was the marshall's dilemma regarding the rights of a battered wife in episode three.

I love quality television that teaches as well as entertains, and Peacemakers, thus far, is a good example of quality television.
