Why Yellowstone with Kevin Costner is a much watch TV show


Ian Field, Contributing Writer

There is a new season of Yellowstone with Kevin Costner. This is a must watch if you enjoy shows that have a great storyline and lots of action and conflict. This show is about a family that owns a ranch. They have owned this land for generations and have put blood, sweat and tears into making it better and protecting what they have from people who want to take it. Kevin Costner plays a strong character who will do anything to protect when past generations have done to protect what they have. I would give this show a 10/10 rating because of the dialogue and story that goes behind every conflict in the story. This television series came out on June 20, 2018 and was a great success. This series was created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson and premiered on Paramount Network. Again and again, this show’s intense scenes keep you watching not stop. This is truly a show that you could binge watch until you have watched every thrilling scene. This ranch does way more than raise cattle and sell them. This is the largest ranch in the United States called the Dutton Ranch. There are conflicts with people who have had a family grudge with the Duttons for generations; however, their family has not been beaten yet. 

Kevin Costner plays John Dutton, and has been passed down the ranch. This is a sixth generation ranch. He has children, Kayce Dutton played by Luke Grimes, Beth Dutton played by Kelly Reilly, and Jamie Dutton played by Wes Bentley. Each role gets better than the next as there are lots of actors that play many roles in this story. Rip Wheeler is also one of the lead characters in the show that continues to be even more extreme and continues to help the Dutton family keep what they have earned. Jamie Dutton has studied hard his whole life, gone to college and is now grown up and is a lawyer. He has betrayed his family and sided with the people who want to take what is not theirs. He wants to take the offer for the land that the land developers have offered, but this plan has come to a halt. Rip is like a son to John Dutton and has worked on this ranch ever since he ran away from his home as a kid. Through the years he is now suited with Beth Dutton who plays John’s mentally tough daughter who takes charge whenever is needed. And Rip handles any physical business that protecting this ranch would require.  I have been watching this show and am up to date with the current seasons and must emphasize that this is a must watch show and it will make you want to watch after even the first episode.

The newest season features more conflict with land developers that offer half a billion for a large portion of this land to build an airport for tourists who want to go ski and snowboard on the beautiful mountains of Montana. This is a sure money maker and these antagonists will stop at nothing to get what they want.
