Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect, Dutton family patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Costner) is determined to protect his ranch and his family's legacy by any means necessary.
The scenery is breathtaking! The family is down right crazy. They put the FUN in DysFUNctional to say the least. I like Kevin Costner, sometimes the story line gets a bit outrageous... but this is Hollywood so there you have it. Beth is something else I can't wait for them to say why she hates Jamie so much, besides he is a bit of a WHIMP along side of the rest of the nutty family. I like it, it's a drama it's location is so beautiful. I can't fathom how real people would act in real life there so I watch this show for it's mindless entertainment.
Dances With Wolves (In Montana, and today)
Beatiful area, great soundtrack, a very heart wrenching type of situational living, good characters, well acted, and well played. Very worth the watch. You can say what you want on the the stereo types. Its gonna keep you coming!!!
Great writing and acting!
By Dad 1950
Kevin Costner’s acting is awesome. And the writing is superb. I hope this series runs for at least 6 seasons!
Hangs Down Best Series
Hands down the best series in television !
I like the show, but the politics get in the way
Those people saying the show has a left wing idealogy steeped in the writing and production are correct. It clearly does. Especially the season 2 finale, which was not so subtle about it all. While men with guns show up at various locations to try and save a child, and kill everyone in sight, including women, men with "right to bear arms" on thier shirts are portrayed as the villians. It's just a silly thing to see. That said, I do enjoy the show because that is not a frequent occurance. Generally speaking it's a very well written melodrama about a messed up family being a messed up family in an absolutely gorgeous setting. And the performances are all top notch. I am a Kevin Costner fan, and his work on this show is effortlessly solid.
Love the show
Some great story- lines and demonstrates how messed up our society has gotten. Costner is awesome as usual. I hope this show keeps going on, but if so, keep the political views out of it or actually make them real and honest representations. Better be more seasons!
Wasn’t a fan of Kevin Costner
By Sally, That Girl!
But the series absolutely sold me on him. Now I’m an avid fan of anything he’s in going forward. I think he’s at his apex now and this series opened my eyes to it. The supporting cast is amazing and I’m just drawn in. It’s like Shakespearean drama in the West. Give both seasons a chance. You’ll be a fan too if you weren’t already.
