My wife and I have watched a lot of movies in our day . We pretty much have some easily met standards set as a critique guide. To us a movie should establish its mission statement then deliver. Then it should have a beginning , a middle and an end. It should have believable characters also. After just four episodes of Yellowstone it failed on all counts . If one were to want a good movie for a counseling business to illustrate weird behavior this might work because all these folks except a few are seriously messed up. Its almost hard not to expect a van pulling up with the Dr Phil and Jerry Springer getting out offering an intervention . When you cast that against the gorgeous landscape it simply even becomes more bewildering. Its hard to fathom they maintain a multi million dollar ranching operation. I tried to understand how any of these poor folks even get put of bed in the morning and found it impossible . So if you want total fiction with a mafia cowboy twist then this might be just the ticket . It does have some beautiful landscape also but as far as true to reality goes its far from that. I really dont think any multi million dollar ranch recruits prisoners from prison into the family and then brands them under the Montana night sky by campfire light. I also dont think they drive people they fire out of town and shoot them either . Calling it the long black train...seriously. My conclusion is the whole family is so difunctional that by now one of them would have gotten help and then eventually it would have spread to most of the family.

I was really looking forward to this series because I like Kevin Costner but about the time the female star opens her mouth and spews forth a string of obscenities, they bout lost me. I stayed with it thinking was a one time only event but, alas, I was wrong. Needless to say, I changed to something else. Maybe the writers and producers think it's necessary because that's what people want, but I bet if they cut it out, most people wouldn't even notice it was gone. I don't talk like that.
