Parent reviews for The Good Lord Bird
October 20, 2021
Good Lord this is good!
Excellent characters, performances (Hawkes best ever imo) writing, humor, thrills, and commentary. Its all here and its nails it all. There are a few moments of gore in the first 2 and last episodes (most notably a decapitation and a scene involving a canon) among classical western violence. Episodes 3-5 are almost completely void of adult content overall. There is also historical racism, but otherwise there isnt gratuitous/anachronistic profane or sexual content like most premium cable.
