“Lone Star” started strong on FOX, with con man Robert/Bob Allen deciding to sort-of play it straight at his job while simultaneously getting in deeper with conning the loves in his life. What did you think of the premiere episode?
We think the concept is interesting — it raises so many questions of where the series will go. Will the two lives, separated by over 500 miles of Texas oil country, ever intersect? Creator Kyle Killen likened the two wives meeting to “crossing the streams,” but star Adrianne Palicki told us “it would be fantastic.”
The cast is also superb. Newcomer James Wolk won’t be an unknown for very long and Palicki and Eloise Mumford as his two loves are beautiful and charming. But for our money, we can’t wait to see more of Jon Voight‘s Clint Thatcher and David Keith‘s John Allen. Both characters are formidable foils to Robert/Bob’s livelihood and they could not have cast better actors.
Finally, we can’t wait to see how the con is going to continue to play out. Robert/Bob can’t have completely given up his con man life and he has a pretty good cover in place now that he’s working at the Thatcher company.
What did you think of the “Lone Star” premiere? Will you be tuning into Texas every week?
