Yellowstone remains the most famous show on television. According to Nielsen, the Season 3 finale of the Paramount Network drama series starring Kevin Costner drew a total of 5.2 million viewers on Live + Same Day, a million more than any other episode in the history of the series, making it the # 1 cable broadcast. of the year. .

Yellowstone will look like a movie on a big screen, according to Paramount Network, and there will be plenty of those cross-country big shots of movies leaving, making cinematic lands like Texas (Hell of High Water) and, here, Utah and Montana so stunning .
But Yellowstone tries to be so expansive and soap operatic from the start – as evidenced by the overuse of helicopter shots – that there’s hardly any realism in it. The series begins with a slaughter of a tractor trailer and ends with Costner speaking existentially to a battered and dying horse before shooting it dead in the pre-credits series. From there, there isn’t really any way out.
John Dutton, the patriarch and baron of the Dutton family farm in Montana, is played by Costner. Despite not being explained at this level of detail in the series – which is surprising given the level of the exhibit – Paramount Network claims Costner’s character has a secret: “ Controls the United States’ largest contiguous ranch, which is constantly on edge. foot. with those who live on the borders: land developers, an Indian reservation and America’s first national park.

There are guns, horses, and more guns, as well as a chopper, dynamite, sex, and fire, as well as plenty of metaphorical measurements of dicks and conversations about what it means to be a man or a cowboy. Being gay is the subject of jokes.

Yellowstone, on the other hand, has a few flaws. One problem isn’t money, of course: every actor imaginable can be seen in this series, including famous faces like Huston, Hennessy and Wendy Moniz, who all have a few lines that refer to the development of their characters later on. Even Gretchen Mol has been cast as Costner’s late wife, but who knows, she might appear in more than family photos. There are a lot of great actors here, but they can’t be discreet.
