I first heard of this TV series on CTV while being in Canada. It was pretty intriguing for the European that I am. And I’m not sure this show will ever cross the Atlantic.
North Dakota and the oil boom aren’t among the sexiest place on earth – unlike the Upper East Side or the Orange County. But since It’s starring Chace Crawford I had to give it a go.
And so did I. I never watch Dallas but I honestly believe they can be close. There’s guns, oil, money and family fights and of course huge SUV and pick up trucks. I although reminded me a bit of 666 park avenue. Especially the relationship between Cody and Billy LeFever, Hap and Carla Briggs reminded me of the relationship between Jane Van Veen, Henry Martin and Olivia and Gavin Doran. These young couples looking for success and choosing some very dark mentors.
I think the show was cancelled after one season, probably because it was hard to find a public for that kind of show.
