LONESOME DOVE
August 31, 2013  | By David Bianculli

AMC, 1:00 p.m. ET

 

There’s a whole posse of great characters in this superb 1989 CBS miniseries adaptation of Larry McMurtry’s equally superb Western novel. But for now, stay with the head of the herd: Robert Duvall gives a career-best performance as Augustus McRae, and Tommy Lee Jones does likewise as fellow retired Texas Ranger Woodrow Call. Given those two actors, claiming a career best is really, really up there. And Danny Glover, Diane Lane, Anjelica Huston – hell, everyone and everything in this miniseries is worth watching, from start to finish. And you can do just that, today, as AMC televises the entire miniseries from 1-9 p.m. ET.
