Haven't watched the show but there are a lot of clips on youtube. Some funny, some brutal. Just plain don't like many of the characters as people. (John Dutton should definitely kill two of his three children...)
My guess is Dutton gives all or most of the ranch back to the Native Americans his great grandpa took it from. His kids are all black cloud, disaster's that whine about the ranch. He is John Dunbar, before he was Dutton after all. And it’s the woke thing to do.
My guess is... the show is going to become more woke. We have Piper Perabo (Summer, John's new F buddy) who endorsed Liarwatha in 2020, was arrested at a SCJ Bret Kavanaughs Senate hearings, also arrested at Hanoi Jane's climate chnage protest, Ryan Bingham, (Walker) who just played at Beto O'Rourke rally...
My greatest hope however is that Monica gets offed. Like Kim Bauer from 24, she should have met her timely demise in Season 1, Episode 1, before the first commercial break. But didn't. And then had to listen to her whining bravo sierra for the rest of the series.
Seriously girls, why don't you watch the Young & the Restless instead? :) From the little I've seen (which was too much already) it's really not about the west as much as it is about stupid characters who are messed up and live in the west. Crotch novel drama on TV...
Given how popular the show it the opinion above will not be a well received one.
The entire show is bereft of any characters with any redeeming qualities, except for maybe Jimmy and Lloyd, and Casey to a lesser extent. My wife (along with a lot of women I know) love Beth’s character. I despise her. I look forward to the day when she receives her just desserts. (along with a laundry list of others)
No need to overthink it or politicize it. Take it for what it is - good entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed the episodes last night and like where this is going. Especially comparing Dutton's governor character to this mess we have here in Colorado..
They could have actually come to the south and got a redneck cowgirl instead of trying to invent one!! There are a few that dip, cuss and actually have a real, southern accent. Teeter's is ridiculous;)
Quality television in my opinion. I don’t watch much of it but I do keep up on Yellowstone. I don’t have cable so haven’t seen the new episodes yet. I just do the internet and have a few streaming platforms. I guess it’s exclusively on Paramount network. Can’t even see it on Paramount+ ?
The difference is, Teeter is an accomplished actress and Michael Landon's daughter. If they'd done a casting call for a redneck girl who dips snuff and curses in the trailer parks in Alabama, well, that's who they would have gotten..
It’s TV Drama not a Documentary. Troubles a brewin since one on the collars is caught up in a log jam still wrapped around the wood. Shoulda trapped a coyote a put it on it or better yet an eagle. I always thought putting one on a semi headed out of state.
The hunters had tags and it's legal to hunt wolves at night over bait on private property in Montana. There are no restrictions regarding killing collared wolves, other than the collars have to be returned to the FWP.
Yeah, I know it's made for TV drama, but my wife actually thought the wolf hunters had illegally killed the collared wolves. In reality, they only broke the law when they tried to discard the collars.
Thanks Jaq.......that was my point because that's what they are trying to make Landon's daughter look like and it ain't working. Oh, and they probably shouldn't go as far as Alabama.......an Arkansas hillbilly would have been fine;)
Did they have tags for the wolves or not. When the one guy (Colbie I think) said we have tags so we're legal the other guy sort of looked away and didn't answer then Colbie said oh shit. So maybe they did not actually get the tags, I'm not sure why they would be so freaked out if they actually had wolf tags. Either way an entertaining couple hours with a good drink (or 3) in front of the fireplace!
The only time I’ve ever seen that ranch is when I hunted on it. The Bitterroot River runs through it and I’d hunt the flood plains. The buck in the middle came from there. Everyone I know tells me I need to watch that show and that I’d love it but I just don’t watch much tv at all. I did watch the first episode of this season. It was cool too see the ranch and to be very familiar with it and the surrounding hills. They make it look so big when it’s actually pretty small.
I just finished the first season on DVD while sitting in my camper at night after hunting.
I'm trying to like it but I'm struggling with it. I don't know if any of you have watched Sons of Anarchy but I'm guessing not many, maybe Mule Power. Anyway, both series have some of the same writers/creators and the story lines and characters in both SOA and Yellowstone are extremely similar.
I feel like the creators of Yellowstone just took the Sons of Anarchy script and put it in a different setting. It feels like the same story I've already watched. They've copied all the same issues with loyalty, competing interests, politicians/law enforcement on the take, proposed real estate developments, out of state millionaires moving in, strained marriages over child endangerment issues and bad behavior by the number one son (Jax on SOA & Kayce on Yellowstone) . The issues that Kayce and Monica are dealing with are almost identical to what Jax and Tara dealt with on Sons of Anarchy.
The characters and stories are so similar and predictable that I feel like I'm watching the same story and nothing that happens is surprising.
Hadn’t until you mentioned it. What does this have to do with Bowsite?
If you consider the trend in this country, hunting is on the chopping block. People that hunt have weapons.
Article V section 2(a convention of states) was the founding fathers first and original answer to an overreach of Federal powers. Some gun owners think the second amendment protects them from government, but that is wrong. Personally I would rather work on the Constitutional and peaceful non-violent way to change the Federal government. 34 states are needed to call a convention and over half the states needed have already signed on to the plan. I wouldn't want another civil war, but we are already in a non-civil cultural war that threatens a future for hunting.
Article V Convention of States is the biggest plan to rectify the biggest problem in this country and you, and many others have never heard of it. You might say my post is. Hey guys! Heads up!
