Yellowstone: Season One
July 15, 2019 9:06 AM - Season 1 (Full Season) - Subscribe

The Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Kevin Costner), controls the largest contiguous ranch in the modern day United States. This huge piece of land puts them constantly at odds with those it borders: land developers, an Indian reservation, and the nearby national park. From writer/producer Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Hell or High Water.)

Airing on the Paramount Network, which is apparently an actual channel that has this one show.

The Paramount Network was formerly known as Spike, formerly The National Network, formerly The Nashville Network. Everything else on said channel appears to be a grimly awful reality show.

This is essentially Taylor Sheridan giving us Dallas as set in contemporary Montana. Its Central focus is the Duttons but the reservation and local working people feature prominently as well.

I watched the pilot assuming I would hate it, but found it fairly engaging in that Thing Your Dad Would Like That Isn't Bad way that Kevin Costner often operates in.

I watched the pilot and maybe episode two. Yellowstone was okay, but didn't hold my attention. The characters were a bit too over the top, especially the daughter. The scene where she and one of the ranch hands have sex and then after finishing, he says something about meeting up later and she replies, "You always mess it up," was interesting (it was set up as kind of a first time seduction, but not really), but also showed off what a not very nice person she was. That isn't a show that's going to keep me watching.

One thing I did like was the examination of how rural Montana was slowly being gentrified.
