One of the BEST Series EVER !!!

To me this series is a modern day "Giant" . This is the very best thing Kevin Costner has been associated with. See it from the beginning ....... but SEE IT !!!!

A Monster is Among Us

The show is starting to lose me a bit.

Kevin Costner writhing in pain for half the episode is not something for people to get excited about.

Go back to John and the tribe fighting. That's where the money is for Yellowstone.

Great Series, Strange Transitions
ehvogel14 August 2018
First off, I absolutely love 'Yellowstone'. Some have referred to it as a modern-day 'Giant', I like to think of it as a modern-day 'Bonanza". This was the very first episode that disappointed me, however. The cliffhanger at the end of the previous episode was completely white-washed in this one. I don't want to say a lot because I don't want to spoil anything, but, a quick note to the writers, there needs to be continuity between episodes that make sense. There was absolutely no explanation for what turned out and I was left with the feeling that it was just a dumb bit of writing to tease the next episode. Nonetheless, I am totally immersed in this series.

What happened to the writing?

How does the writing get progressively worse during the same season? So much unbelievable stuff happens in this episode it's sad. Almost as sad as losing Kevin to his dementia. But I guess if you have no clue outside of your phone or MSM you won't pick up on it :[

Really bad and disappointing

There are so many story lines this show could be pursuing beyond dedicating much of it to a secondary character's brain trauma that occurred from random accidental violence. It pointless soap opera, full of surprise health changes, sorrowful eye contact, and weepy family scenes around her hospital bed. It's boring,

Beth doesn't make sense as a character. Would somebody her age still be driven solely by accidentally causing her mother's death? A child would bear that burden fully but an adult decades later would put it in some perspective, at least enough to have other facets to her personality. She's just anger and depression and people are more nuanced than that. Also, why would anyone want to be around her? Why would Rip care at all about a person who shows him nothing but abuse and sadism. His psychology interests me more and what makes him tick is never explored.

I feel like the Asian cliff scene was thrown in because the director realized this episode is incomprehensibly dull. It made no sense. There is no organic reason some Asians are all of a sudden hanging onto the edge of a cliff. Rip's conversation with them makes no sense. Why the meet and greet? Make sure they know pertinent instructions and save them. The Asian man's reaction to grab the rope can be explained away by panic but why throw two people falling to their deaths into a show for frivolous reasons.

Do we need to hear real estate contract negotiations? I liked the Beth riding horse scene. It was a good metaphor for why life is hard for her. But she's character cutout from an insecure man's imagination. She's pure angst and female chaos and I cannot engage with a character who doesn't have tangibility.
