Yellowstone: One of the Best Shows on TV

Streaming or Otherwise, Does Not Matter

Trailer for season one:

Videos at IMDB.

The scenery ... Holy Moses. Unbelievable. It’s like taking a trip out west, which of course has always been part of the appeal of any story set in the West. 

Costner is very good as the Old West patriarch of a powerful ranching family but so are all three (remaining) kids, with wildly different personalities and capabilities. Several ranch hands play big roles, especially Rip, also very good. 

Plenty of storylines involving tensions with local Indian leaders, land developers, politics, and of course land and livestock. This story could easily be from 1933 (mostly). Timeless, in other words.

Worth watching a few episodes to get the flavor and see if you want to continue or not.
