Trivia

Parts of the speech Ronald Reagan' is heard giving is taken from his famous "Rendezvous with Destiny" speech Reagan gave in 1964 in support of Sen. Barry Goldwater 's run for President. Conservative Republicans were so impressed by that speech that it led to Reagan's later election as Governor of California and then President of the U.S. See more »

Goofs

The banner on the side of Reagan's bus reads "Reagan '80" with a single quote in front of 80 rather than an apostrophe, revealing this mistake to be the result of the automatic "smart quote" feature of modern word processing programs. See more »

Quotes

Mike Milligan: My mother could find the cloud in every silver lining.
Simone Gerhardt: That's cute. Mine smiles all the time, like some ghoul. I think it's 'cause dad hits her when she looks sad.

Death comes ridin' in
20 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Up until this point, I hadn't given a rip about the Blumquists; but in short order, their situation turns bleak and there's obviously no happy ending in this for them 'The Gift of the Magi', has all of the staging of a season finale; people dropping dead left and right (one of said killing sprees is juxtaposed with a patriotic campaign speech, tension from every corner; it's bad tidings all over. You know stuff's getting dark with Mike Milligan (Bokeem Woodbine) recites Jabberwocky as he's gunning up. I'm pretty sure I've never seen split-screen used so effectively to jack up the suspense. It's an exhilarating episode; violent, dreadful and really ups the ante.

I can't leave out Bruce Campbell, who more than holds his own as Governor Reagan, and I'm pretty sure this is just a one-off. But it was a great performance, nonetheless. IT fit right in with the excellent episode.

10/10
