I think Beth is my favorite character on TV right now.
Totally nonsensical thought BUT...the guy who plays Jamie Dutton's father. He worked with Costner in No Way Out. Did Costner have anything to do with it? Was he taking care of an old buddy, or was he pleasantly surprised to see a buddy show at the reading table? Like I said, totally nonsensical!!
Mine too. But if I ever met her in a dark alley, I'd run in the other direction. I think I'd rather take my chances with Rip!
he was also in the postman with costner
his name is will patton
even Howard Stern was talking about it this morning, like most of us we are used to watching things on a streaming service but Yellowstone on Paramount TV is not on the Paramount streaming service that I pay a monthly fee for, WTF.
I have no idea where the Paramount tv network is on my cable service.
Mentioned before how I went thru the routine with Paramount. Last week I signed up, expressly to watch this show, but there was nothing there! Truthfully, between HBO/Max, Netflix, and Amazon Prime, I don't need another service. I canceled Paramount, and I purchased the entire season on Amazon Prime for $20 bucks!
I haven't seen this but I think Open Range had one of the most realist gun fights. People shooting like crazy and never hitting anything. I've eaten at his ex-wife's restaurant and she's a great manager too.
I was truly amazed to find out that Kelly Reilly is an Englishwoman. (Irish heritage, but London-raised.) She doesn't just do an American accent, she does a West-of-the-Mississippi, Mountain/Pacific Time Zone American accent. Pitch-perfect for Beth's character. A bit underplayed and cosmopolitan, rather than the cowgirl twist that you hear in the voices of the barrel racers. And while the character of Beth demands beaucoup drama, Kelly avoids the temptation to do a one-note impression, or to overact. Playing a drama queen without overacting is some doing. I believe the character of Beth Dutton. Even when she's blowing someone's head off at point-blank range.
fwiw: judging from the films and TV episodes I've seen, while I have seen some BBC shows where the actor wasn't nailing the American accent of their character, as a rule, actors from the UK do much better at pulling off American accents than American actors manage to handle the British accents of their characters.
TV today will literally nickel and dime you to death.
I was just saying the other night to my wife - everyone who wanted to "break up cable" and get their a la carte options - welcome to your new normal. I based that on CBS (?) taking SEAL Team off broadcast air and putting it on Paramount, I think. So now you have to pay to watch it. Granted, it IS a better show for it - a little more in line with what actual military personnel would sound and act like - but I think this was a "be careful what you wish for" situation.
Is what it is, I suppose.
Yeah, I suppose. But this thing with Paramount is different and strange. I just read that Yellowstone pulled in some very impressive numbers on Sunday, 8 million viewers plus! How many people did what I did, signed up just to watch the show, only to find it wasn't there! AND it was supposed to be a promo, 1st month free, but my bank account shows the $9.99 fee was taken! My thoughts are it's $10 bucks, what's the big deal? But imagine it multiplied, by say, 8 million?
they did the same thing to 'evil' that they did with 'seal team'
i have one TV bill - cable, and that is all i will ever have.
A long yet unsuccessful history,last known and Spike TV,which,for a while,tried to be the testosterone version of WE TV. Their successful version of COPS was a draw till the George Floyd murder May 2020 and the aftermath(not a political statement,this was a news story about the cancellation-now on Fox Nation,a streaming subscription site).
In S4, I get this feeling things are rushed, yet every now and then some scenes seem to drag out. I can't really put my finger on it, but feels like issues with pacing.
excellent observation, and i do agree.
it seems to be running in place, if you know what i mean.
and, unless there is going to be some great revelatory secret about the kid with rip and beth, it is being way way way overdone. kids ruin TV shows, plain and simple, they always do.
'big sky' is another example of kids ruining TV shows, **** those kids and move on with the real story.
I agree about the kid, seems like a big mistake. Rip's storyline has taken a left turn. 1st off, his relationship with Beth was better when she flew solo, next his dealings with Lloyd doesn't ring true, he took a beating but that should've been the end of it. Doesn't seem like RIP to hold a grudge against his best friend. Walker started it but he didn't get a beating! I'm still enjoying the show, but I'm left wondering whether the Covid epidemic has affected the shows writing. I thought when his grandson left the ranch it felt unnatural. Costner looked like he was hit by a pole but I thought the kid liked his Grandpa. Don't get me started on that ingrate Monica! Lastly, this seasons bad guy, the old lady, doesn't exude the neccesary menace to be this season's bad guy! Would've been better with a Susan Sarandon or Jessica Lange in the role! The good thing is that the show's will be back next season, hopefully it will get back on track.
This show is loosing me. Too many threads going on at once and most of them not that interesting.
That is Will Patton who is a solid character actor that has been in lots of films. He is always good.
... or, as I like to call it, The Sopranos on Horseback.
Great show. I started watching this last week-I am now 2 episodes into Season 3.
I agree, With a little bit of Dallas style soap thrown in.
more godfather than sopranos.
you can almost go character for character between the 2.
And as much as I like the show, Beth is just getting over the top for me. Wish writers would not completely go nuts like that...
I just finished Season3-that last episode was a shocker. I am watching on peacock so I will have to wait until Season4 gets on there. I don’t want spoilers so I will sign out of this thread for awhile.
