What I’m Watching: Tulsa King

Tulsa King: Season 1, Episode 4 “Visitation Place” (B+)

I’m glad to see that Dwight found a productive use for Armand rather than just killing him, and that his distaste at the idea of him having agave rather than sugar to put with his tea didn’t send him over the edge. Dwight wasn’t interested in hearing about how Tulsa isn’t New York City, but Armand has apparently proven himself by showing up and getting money for a separate act of loyalty than the new tax he owes to his boss. He also stood up for himself for the first time in a while, attacking his neighbor with that soiled shoe and telling his wife that they already have a home. It also looked like Tyson was going to inadvertently get himself into some trouble with his father intervening and judging what he was doing, but Mark showed up to join the enemy of his enemy after seeing how his son had been beaten up. They’re definitely a ragtag team, but one that’s capable of producing good results, even if some of their members don’t want to resort to violence as a matter of principle. I didn’t recognize Emmy nominee Annabella Sciorra as Joanne, giving Dwight a bit of connection to his personal life and permitting him an emotional goodbye he didn’t know was coming so soon. Removed from one bad romantic option, Stacy is playing the field but also watching herself since she knows that it’s very easy to find the wrong person who can lead to many headaches.
