It is so gorgeous and beautiful to look at and I guess being from Texas, I find it comforting.
Obviously Kevin has gotten better with age! Hot Daddy!
They scored big time to get Kelly Reilly in this! I still tear up when I think of her character in ""Flight"! She is one powerful actress who really puts her heart out there!
I am in love with this show! I don't want to spoil anything so I'll just leave it at this. It is enjoyable to let play in the background or focus on intently. It doesn't try to own you, it just offers you everything to take in as you please.
Yellowstone is a solidly written drama - great characters, well-crafted - that draws it's tone from a few different modern-day masterpieces.It has the feel and cinematography of Longmire, the plotting and grim outlook of The Sopranos, and the dramatic dynamics of shows like 'Dynasty' or any of the other network dramas similar to that.Much respect must go to Costner and Cole Hauser - these guys bring it 100%.I did not expect to get drawn in to this show like I did. It's well worth your time.
I have seen most of Coles tv work but I have to say when I watched the first
Episode of "Yellowstone" and the next few I was so entriged with Rips character and he seemed familiar I had to look up who this handsome dark haired cowboy was and imagined my shock when it said Cole Hauser !!! I was telling myself NO WAY !! Brilliant I tell you JUST brilliant !!!
I've been waiting on this show to premiere and I was more than pleased with the performance with the great set of actors and actresses that seem to bring their A game along. Beautiful cinematography and we'll bred horses what else could a gal ask for?
I don't believe anyone does western films better than Kevin Costner and with Taylor Sheridan writing it is a win win for viewers. Take a look at "Wind River" for an example of what Taylor Sheridan can do.
Where has Cole Hauser been hiding? He is amazing.
I guess the daughter is a necessary part, but she is over the top at being a bitch.
The scenery is fantastic and being from Colorado I can really appreciate the vast beautiful land.
Do yourself a favor and get hooked on this series as it is going to be a winner.
I thoroughly enjoyed this premier. Mr. Costner is Lt. Dunbar, Wyatt Earp and Charley Waite all in one. I like his character and I enjoy watching his cowboy experience play this role. I totally appreciate the story line, ruthless at times but I can see John Dutton fiercely protect what he has and wants. The Dutton Family is strong and you can tell they share dad's passion, even in the youngest son. Yes, it reminded me of Longmire in many ways. I just hope the series is just as good as the premier and that it doesn't drag out and get ruined. I enjoyed Longmire, but the ending left something to be desired for me. Hope the end results are better in this new-era Cowboy show.
One of the best pieces of television I have seen. Among the ranks with the Sopranos, Mad Men, etc.. Costner fans know he has always been fascinated with the west. Dances with Wolves, Open Range, Silverado. Costner doesn't need to make movies or TV shows anymore. He is a great writer. Given the quality writing and cinematography depicted in Yellowstone, Costner is clearly enjoying making this one. Excellent acting across the cast and the fact that most of the actors are not household names, makes the characters more interesting. I would urge anyone who likes smart dramas to watch this series. If you like westerns, you can's miss it.
Binged both seasons in a few days. Best show I've seen in long time, I pray they keep it going for years to come!
This is the type of show where cowboy/western life meets big city mafia life. This show is well cast, the first two episodes have been well written and leaves you wanting more after every episode. Not to mention the Montana and Utah scenery is beautiful. The Dutton's remind me of the Ewing's from the 70's drama "Dallas". In short Yellowstone is "Dallas" meets "Sopranos".
The fact that it's filmed outside on location is like a film. It scenery, acting and writing are superb. Best show I watch this summer! And it's on cable.
Yellowstone is one of the best shows on tv right now! It's been the #1 summer show 3 years in a row! It's hard to explain just how good this show really is. The acting, writing, cinematography, production, etc, are all incredible! It's one of the rare shows where almost every episode is just as good as the others. I can not recommend this show enough, just go watch it for yourself!
I live in Darby, MT where most of this is filmed - just yesterday they filmed right across the street from me in a field with a few horse and cattle. I believe the show is pretty solid story, and in the niche where Costner does his best. One thing I did notice about the first season, given my half Native American side, is it leaves you wondering who the good guys and bad guys are - perhaps both sides are both good and bad.I will admit it is neat to see them filming while here, the ranch is just down the road from me and I pass nearly daily on the way to fish in the Bitterroot River
