Bruce Campbell in Lodge 49: Exclusive first look - via Ew
“We went out to dinner, and we jibber-jabbered, and couldn’t quite make that work,” says Campbell of the aborted project. “But I’ve always been a big fan, and we kept looking for ways to intersect, and this one made perfect sense. He was my boss. I liked that!”

This is a regular guy. Not a mythical character with a chainsaw hand, not a Harvard educated bounty hunter or an ex-Navy Seals operative. Gary Green/Captain lives in a moral grey area. He follows his own set of rules.
Lodge 49 episode 5 review: Liz's terrible day and crumbling life - via Cartermatt
The icing on the cake for Liz and Dud’s crumbling relationship was her telling him that wanting to be like their father was a mistake for him, especially since she felt like he killed himself. This prompted probably the most poignant line of the entire season:

Lodge 49 wraps tonight’s episode on a lighter note—Kenneth Welsh loves to doff his duds, doesn’t he?—but it doesn’t rush through the knock-down, drag-out between brother and sister. These are things that need to be said, and might finally snap them out of their ruts. As enjoyably aimless as the first half of the season has been, I’m looking forward to seeing what Lodge 49 can do when it has more direction.
'Lodge 49' Is a Surreal Mystery (If You Want It to Be) - via Theringer
Perhaps, in the wake of series like Lost, Twin Peaks, Mr. Robot, Legion, and Westworld, we’ve all been conditioned to watch any shows that lend themselves to mystery in a certain way. Those shows have taught us that every detail can be of the utmost importance—that every uttering, every glance, every background flourish be analyzed, for they may be the key to unlocking the stories’ deepest meanings. That sort of behavior isn’t the only way to approach the carefully detailed workings of Lodge 49—depending on what you want, it can be a compelling mystery, a contemporary fable, a ruminative exploration on America’s dying middle class, or The Big Lebowski–meets-surfing, perfectly tailored for the ultimate stoner binge. The choice to open the mystery box or not is uniquely up to the viewer. Lodge 49 is the rare show where calling it unlike anything on television isn’t hyperbole. Whatever it is, it’s magical.
Lodge 49 is a modern fable set in Long Beach. It centers on Dud, a deadbeat but charming ex-surfer who joins a fraternal order hoping to reclaim the simple, happy lifestyle he lost when his father died. Through the Lodge and his newfound connection with the other members, Dud will come to find the missing sense of purpose in his life and confront his deepest fears and greatest hopes. Other key characters in the series include Liz Dudley, Dud's twin sister and Ernie Fontaine, a middle-aged African American and long-time lodge member who welcomes him into this mysterious new world.
But it’s also thoroughly dull. Over the course of its first six episodes, the series hints vaguely at some supernatural (or at least mystical) conspiracy without ever delivering on it, even as the characters discover some genuinely confounding secrets about the history of the Lynx.

Alan Ball asked a similar question on Six Feet Under — “What do we do with our limited time together?” — and answered it, brilliantly. But his recent attempt to explore interconnectedness, Here and Now, starring Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter, was swamped by self-seriousness.

Lodge 49 is a show that is difficult to label. The episodes are certainly unique, which these days is pretty hard to pull off. On its surface, the premise is simple. A man who is down and out in life discovers a ring on the beach which leads him to a quasi-secret society called Lodge 49. <...> - by ATVandCity [Matthew Stanford]
Mostly yellow flattens the screen, and forces images — or faces — right up to the front, making them more vivid and real. And under that pale, dust-dimmed, yellowish Southern California sun, all these faces seem especially real and vivid. The characters of "49" are people stuck in the middle — of <...> - by Newsday [Verne Gay]
Given the focus on Dud's tragic family history and Long Beach's deteriorating middle class, the show's offhanded suggestions of the supernatural can feel frivolous by comparison. Yet Lodge 49 rarely lets the specifics of that mystery crystallize before adding a new complicating development, or another <...> - by Slant Magazine - Season 1 [Michael Haigis]
