      In The Beast: Tilt, we finally get some answers about a piece of Charles Barker’s past, and it’s about time. I can take being teased only for so long. Before that happens, though, we’re treated to poker, Texas Hold ‘Em to be precise. It seems a man who has agreed to turn and provide the FBI with some much needed information insists on

      a last big poker game first. Barker and his partner, Ellis Dove, go along incognito and play in the big game. They are especially worried about an old assassin named Ezekial who is probably going to be at the game.

      There is actually some early humor in this episode, which is a bit unusual, but it fits perfectly. Barker’s boss has just handed over ...


      • their buy-ins, a whopping three-million dollars when he decides to ask if they know how to play poker. Barker, of course, plays it up. It’s just a nice breather from the drama that takes place over the rest of the hour.

        Patrick Swayze looks great in his Wyoming cowboy outfit. What a hat — big and broad. Travis Fimmel, on the other hand,

        looks silly in these white glasses he’s wearing. I suppose that’s his character’s cover, but he just comes off over the top yet again.

        The show has its slow spots, but it sure picked up when the secrets to Barker’s past begin to reveal themselves. There’s a lot of emotional depth here on Swayze’s part. The last ten to fifteen minutes is a thriller!
