He finds out that his daughter Sarah (Lisa Vicari) is actually alive, living with her fiance John Ellis (Nicholas Pinnock), founder of the city New Babylon.

Production Notes

This cinematic, sprawling 10-part series is “loosely inspired” by Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 cult spaghetti western of the same name. Though it is in English, it was jointly produced by four European production companies, was directed by Gomorrah’s Francesca Comencini, largely shot in Romania, and has a mostly European cast, who speak with a great variety of accents. Some sound American, some German, some English, some French. It sort of makes sense if you don’t look too closely, and adds to the “everyone’s welcome” vibe of New Babylon, but it also gives it a distinctly Euro-Texan feel, a hybrid that takes a little getting used to, as mentioned in a review by The Guardian. The wobbly accents and running time were at the core of most reviewer’s displeasure with the series. The Telegraph called it “underwhelming and over-complicated” while The Independent wrote that “the family drama is frequently superseded by needless shootouts, and characters come and go with the flash of a muzzle.”
