Kevin Costner’s New Show ‘Yellowstone’ Is Must-Watch Television
Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to announce that Kevin Costner’s new show “Yellowstone” is very impressive.
As some of you probably read yesterday, I was worried about the fate of the show after a less than stellar review from The Hollywood Reporter. It turns out that I had absolutely nothing to worry about. I soaked up the first two hours Wednesday night, and this show was as legit as anyone would want it to be.

The Paramount Network show follows ranching baron John Dutton (Costner) and the rest of his family as they look to stop others from taking their massive ranch in Montana.
Now, I’m not going to say much about this show because I hate spoilers, but I will say that it’s awesome. I’m probably biased because I used to live in Montana, and I knew people similar to the Dutton family. These people are closer than outsiders will ever imagine. There isn’t a price they wouldn’t be willing to pay for the protection of their people and their land. They’re in a constant state of alert, they have tons of money and they have the ability to do whatever they want. The show does a great job of mirroring the actual reality.
I was so nervous that I would be disappointed, but I wasn’t. It was so entertaining watching the Duttons fight against real estate developers on one front and Native Americans looking to steal their cattle on the other front.
The show was an emotional roller coaster and had an awesome shootout scene to close out the premiere.
Overall, the show couldn’t do a much better job of capturing the spirit of Montana. I’m not just saying that as a fan of television. I’m saying it as a man who spent a part of my life there with people who could have been from central casting for this show.
Paramount Network hit a home run with “WACO,” and it looks like it’s got another one with “Yellowstone.”
