Wife and I have been watching and enjoying it quite a bit. The actor is a bit tall for Billy, but his face is uncanny! Costuming has made the point of having Billy wear a sweater as seen in the one, possibly two authentic photos of Billy. Props even has him getting a "double action" revolver although we don't get a close-up of it as I'd imagine it is an Uberti single action, but at least they allude to it!

A bunch of no name actors who can act! It has been refreshing watching this. Costuming and firearms are quite good. The story? Who knows? Not much is known of Billy's back story but it does touch some interesting themes.

It is available on Amazon prime with an additional channel subscription.   I think the same subscription will get you That Dirty Black Bag, which looks a little darker.

So far (8 episodes in), I'm liking "Billy The Kid".

My only real gripe is that there is so far almost zero darkness to his character.   Every unlawful act he commits is either a set up, or he was duped, or he was manipulated by a politician, or he was put into a no win scenario.   A very specific turn on a criminal.  I'd like to see him lose his temper once in awhile, make a poor choice due to rage or something.

I very much enjoyed it and hope that they do more seasons. I feel the guy playing Billy did a good job and the more I look at him as Billy the more he resembles the authentic photo of him.

Since Amazon gave $2M to Black Lives Matter during the summer they were burning US cities I'll have to pass on this one.

Besides, from what you folks are saying Billy was just a poor misunderstood youth who got caught up in a bad situation. Just like the defense attorneys calmed for the 17, 18, and 19 years olds I arrested for felonies. Got a bridge I'll sell ya cheep.
