This is a new series on ABC and it's awesome.
My spoiler free review:
The short: A big money, splashy story set on the Bakken Shale in North Dakota, where crude oil is causing the new gold rush.
The longer: Billy and Cody Lefever dream of a new life beyond their working class roots and move to "The Bakken" in North Dakota, booming after the biggest oil discovery in American history. They’re soon pitted against a ruthless tycoon who forces them to bet big and put everything on the line, including their marriage.
This is a wonderful, writ-large evening soap opera in the tradition of Dallas, Dynasty and Falcon Crest. The four lead actors are great in their respective roles, especially the deliciously devious oil billionaire played by Don Johnson.
A bit over the top, and tons of fun, I am really enjoying Blood & Oil.
