Don't have a clue what prime is (LOL) but out of curiosity, what might this show/movie be about...other than Anglo-Saxon-Protestants?

Not sure myself...a western that was filmed in Spain. 
Prime is a streaming service.  I myself don't even have cable, just watch DVD's.  Was wondering if it might be worth getting and watching when it does come put.

LOL - Guess we'll both have to wait until someone else sees it and tells us (the Forum) about it.

"In the quest for historical authenticity, the production sought the input of a women-led racial and social justice organization known as the "IllumiNative," and many native American Pawnee advisers were frequently consulted as fact-checkers throughout the shoot. As an executive producer, Emily Blunt has said that she was deeply honored when the show received a rare stamp of approval from this organization at the official series premiere."

quote from IMDB

Emily Blunt is married to John Krasinski, from The Office. Cute couple often seen appearing on the talk shows.

Just watched it on Amazon Prime. I found it very good in spots but hard to follow at times. Some of the actors seemed to mumble at times but that might just be my old ears. It's worth watching in my humble opinion.

Finished it yesterday.  Agree on mumbling.  With some accents i had to play with volume  and rewind a couple of times.  I did enjoy it.   Better way to spend black friday than out.

Wife and I finished it the other day.
We enjoyed it, and yes, it was sometimes difficult to understand, but the story line usually carried it along.
I enjoyed the authenticity of the shooting stance the long range Sharps shooter used.

It was somewhat depressing in tone and certainly did NOT glamorize the American West.

Definitely worth watching, but a dark and gritty story. A lot of Sharps shooters. I thought it strange that one of the bushwackers was carrying  a percussion model in 1890!    Jw
