Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders - land developers, an Indian reservation, and America's first National Park. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny - where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil and lumber corporations. Where drinking water poisoned by fracking wells and unsolved murders are not news: they are a consequence of living in the new frontier. It is the best and worst of America seen through the eyes of a family that represents both.
Most of the things that Kevin Costner is associated with I have liked. He has a way of choosing material that makes him the hero, but in an understated way. This story is a little different. He is a man that does questionable things to protect his family and property.
This is a great drama in the same ranges as the Soprano's and Boardwalk Empire. You will fell attached to the characters and feel the pain of their loss.
This has a great cast including Cole Hauser who is the Ranch's muscle. He plays this role perfectly.
I highly recommend this show. Check it out, and you will not be disappointed.
