RESERVATION DOGS SEASON 3 REVIEW
Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi’s Reservation Dogs returns to Hulu for its third and final season. We last left the dogs stranded at a beach in California after the four bid farewell to their friend Daniel. Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon A-Tai) says he is not returning to the reservation and is choosing to remain in California. He plans to track down the home of his father, and maybe learn a little something about his peoples’ fathers and the paths they’ve walked. Elora (Devery Jacobs) has discovered that the man that made love to her mother all those years ago then vanished has a facebook and is super white! Elora must decide whether or not she wants this man in her life before she decides what to do with her future. Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis), stoic and brash as usual, is learning how the traditions of her people should be carried on and who to commune with in order to sustain these beliefs. This sends her on a very personal and moving journey of self discovery. Then there is Cheese (Lane Factor). He goes camping. Being the youngest of the Res Dogs, he’ll come to terms with partings and look forward to greetings. It’s a finale in which the audience says goodbye to the Reservation Dogs, and hopes will encourage them to say hello to many more cultures and voices from storytellers and creatives that have been shunned for so long. Bradly, Melina, and Eliot gush over this finale and series as a whole and praise the cast’s outstanding performances.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)
Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.
Melina Eames (Screener Squad)
Melina first discovered that she carried the nerd gene at the tender age of four following her exposure to a little film called A New Hope. In the twenty-some years that followed, Melina continued to grow into her geek identity through the discovery of Batman, Mst3k, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and The Mandalorian. But perhaps her most significant discovery came at the age of fourteen when a night of YouTube mining led her to the review site of Spill.com. Melina became a devoted follower whose fandom did not end with the site’s demise. By then, it had worked its dark magic and left her with a love and appreciation for film criticism that she has yet to shrug.
Eliot Nelson (Screener Squad, Staff Writer)
Soaked in the soggy rains of Seattle, Eliot developed a love of sci-fi, movies, cartoons, heavy metal, and all of geekdom. Pursuing his passion for the written word, he got his BA from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. He has since worked exclusively in the foodservice industry, like any liberal arts major worth their salt. Eliot wiles away the hours listening to movie reviews, writing his epic sci-fi novel, and consuming as much media as possible. His favorite movies include The Lord of the Rings, City of God, Dawn of the Dead, and Groundhog Day. When not rambling to himself about the ineptness of entertainment executives, Eliot posts infrequently on Twitter and squawks regularly on his podcast The Debasement Tapes.
