It’s Episode 101! Comedians Myq Kaplan (Broccoli and Ice Cream) and Alice Fraser (The Bugle & Tea With Alice) join Flixwatcher to review The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is the Netflix 2018 Coen Brothers western anthology film. There are six vignettes in this film, with a number of high profile actors including Tim Blake Nelson, James Franco, Brendan Gleeson, Liam Neeson, Tom Waits and Zoe Kazan, varying in length and tone.

The stories range from a singing cowboy, a grizzled old prospector and a sinister impresario, what ties them all loosely together is death. There is death everywhere and often without reason or meaning, and definitely gruesome or bloody.



The Ballad of Buster Scruggs divided audiences much like Flixwatcher and guests. There was more love from Myq and Kobi than Alice and Helen and the reviews from Twitter we’re equally mixed. The overall scores reflected this as The Ballad of Buster Scruggs scores 3.03.
