I started Yellowstone on the Paramount Network (formerly Spike) this weekend. Great cast and writing, imo. New season starts up this Wednesday.
Pretty damn good; I've really enjoyed everything Sheridan has written. Although I have not seen Sicario 2, which I hear was underwhelming.
I just finished season 1. I purposely steered away from this show when it came out even though it had some good reviews. It seemed too much like the show Blood and Oil, which I watched for a couple episodes and grew to hate it. I also saw Yellowstone had Kelly Reilly in it and her acting was so terrible in the second season of True Detective, that I could believe someone would cast her in anything ever again. Lastly I'm just not a fan of westerns so I thought it didn't appeal at all to me.
I watched the first episode earlier this week and I was hooked. The show isn't overly dramatic like Blood and Oil. They do such a good job of moving around from character to character where it feels like they are actually allowing the audience to explore the world. They just know how to actually build this world and not get to focused in on one aspect. Most shows would get hyper focused and instead of taking place in this really nice scenery, it would play out indoors on a sound stage.
