Never seen it either, I wuz thinking of starting a watch but when I see every bloody newscast and internet fill in site espousing the show I lose interest right away.

Ignore media, I don't have traditional TV, never even heard of the show, this video popped on up youtube and had to check the show out when it showed up on Prime.

I see it as a remake of the old DALLAS series moved to the North West.  AND since it is/was made for cable, they get away with a lot of situations that mainstream networks could not chance.  Sort of predictable and trait but entertaining.  The Halmark Channel for non-feminists.

Most of the series is filmed here in the Bitterroot Valley. The barn and ranch house are just south of Darby. Other scenes have been filmed in Hamilton and Missoula and I see the Yellowstone trucks in my town (Stevensville) on occasion . Down side is that it has attracted to many people to the area and real estate prices are just getting stupid.

Feel sorry for the focus on your area, we used to go yearly to Montana in the 90's and it seemed interest was growing then, imagine it's gotten much worse now

Tells me ALL I need to know about the 'people', and their hangers-on, and what they intend to do, as IF we aren't already being flooded with this L-word trash, and their 'lifestyle'.

Not that it is an impediment to them, but wait until they, (especially their 'groupies') find out that there is NOTHING in Knox City, Roaring Springs, or Paducah, that satisfies their perverted lifestyles, since they will simply jet off to Austin, Denver, Dallas, or Houston for satisfying it.

IF the 'newscasts' are singing its praises, it only confirms that both the AIR-HEADED ELITE of the MEDIA consider themselves part of the "entertainment industry", and ARE as stupid as watching the 'news' reveals them to be.

Texas, even this little burg I live in, has more than an occasional California, Washinton, or Oregon license plate, and we all should know what their intent is, when they decided to move here. (which the local wine bar confirms).

While the program might NOT have Brooks and Dung, as their featured hillbilly 'musicians', they probably have those just as bad.

.....Oh ..Art....your prejudice against blokes wearing Stetsons

A pen rider in a feedyard (including John Wayne's own) has MORE credibility than some pretend 'cowboy' (including John Wayne), or hillbilly 'musician', which by definition WOULD include Brooks and Dung, that some jerk in Nashville found a hat that come close to fitting, and a horse that him and his 'partner' (you can take that as any way you want) had not fallen off of, yet.

Only a very, very few cowboys turned actors have ever been able to walk the walk, Yakima Canutt, Slim Pickens (rodeo), Ben Johnson, Tom Mix and Hoot Gibson.

I've been an old west/cowboy fan since I was little, it was especially interesting that the very first western movie, the great train robbery was done in 1903, just about when mike graduated, one star was justus barnes a stage actor from the period, and bronco billy anderson, probably the first western movie star, while I digress, there were other movies made that starred outlaws of the day, Al Jennings is a pertinent example of this, real life examples.

.....Art.....I decided I could not face life without a Stetson...this on my last trip, 2015   (could be the ''last'' all right ...:(  )  to the United States ...thus   at the Charlie Russell     Museum in   Great Falls, Mt...I tried a few Stetsons   on..(as it where )....Once the Sales Girl  had finally picked herself off the floor , this after yet another uncontrollable  laughing fit.....,.she reckoned  ''this one ''  would suit me.....Probably had had enough by then,  anyway ....:)....thus I departed   from the great State of  Montana  armed with a Stetson....but lacked a twelve string Gibson....niether did I own a  Horse ....but none the less that Stetson has been great.....shielding my ""Ichabod   Crane "'  like visage from New Zealands   very high  UV  sun rays....... and no pretense whatsoever , as a  musician......

...as for your  collection of ''cowboys  turned actors  ''  Slim Pickens and Ben Johnson  are like ''house hold names ''   in my humble world......and as a kid, my dear   Mother would buy me the ''Tom Mix"'  comics of the day.....but always sternly warning me that ""I would soon grow out of that cowboy nonsense....""  Nearly seventy years has passed since those stern warnings  ..!!!...Nothing has changed.....

...and for your amusement...photo taken, with Stetson, around the 76th  BD.....note the belt buckle, Art....another essential   accessory   for the ''wanna be '' cowboy...:D

Not sure where Beth ranks on the “Crazy Hot Matrix”, I think she’s as much crazy as hot, but there’s been times I wished I had the balls that she does!

Nothing wrong with wearing a Stetson, as I believe that they are made in the GREAT STATE of Texas. and I am glad to see that you are NOT afraid to wear it and get it broken in, (it looks so much different than the PRETEND 'cowboys' depicted on TV and in the movies, OR hillbilly 'musicians' such as brooks and dung wear to show that they are 'authentic'.)

My Dad was always puzzled how the 'cowboys', including the 'great' John Wayne and Matt Dillion could undertake such great fistfights, where they fight off whole 'divisions' of outlaws or Indians, aka Native Americans, and NEVER lose their hat, and it NEVER shows any wear and tear, despite being in battles that would rival the battles of Thermopylae, Waterloo, Gettysburg, Rourkes Drift, Stalingrad, the Chosin Reservoir, or Lang Vei, combined.

To be honest, only after watching "Open Range" did I finally decide that it was time to buy a "bowler", and after seeing the 'quality' of those being sold at the gift shop at the IRMA Hotel in Cody, WY, did I decide to have one custom made at the Greeley Hat Works, in Greeley, CO. (really Evans)

Many years ago, when I ran around with Horse Lady (before she became known as Horse's Azz Lady, the Beech, may she burn in H3ll), I bought two or three Stetsons from Warnock's Hat Works in Pharr, TX.

I used to have two bowlers but they were burned in a fire, properly made they are very comfortable, I’ve worn cowboy hats since I can remember and also like the quick and easy flat hat or paperboy hats from the twenties.

I can appreciate all of your comments about the show and they may be all well and good and probably are, but I'm going with a hard pass,  because anything the scum sucking media feels I should be aware of can go piiss up a rope, lying crap they spew just drives that point more for me.

I usually keep my thoughts to myself and probably should now but what the heck....    I agree with you 1000% on the media, cant stand them, can't watch it, cant listen to it, dont trust much anything they say.  And I don't watch very much of any TV.    But I gotta say, this show is pretty cool.  Yes there are some unrealistic parts (maybe most of it actually), but.... ranchers who don't take sh#t, horses, guns, tough pickup trucks, beautiful scenery, some good music.....  So who gives a dam# what the media thinks.  Why make decisions either way based on them?  I dont give them a second thought.  I will live my life the way I want to.

I see you have 100 posts, with opinions like that you fit right in so make sure you get that built up quick, and I was reading on one talking head named Cuomo who could/might/will lose his job because of not playing nice about his brother the embattled ex-gov of NY, I gotta say it made me all warm and fuzzy.

If you watch John Wayne movies, Beverly Hillbillies, Dukes Of Hazzard, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Yellowstone or post on Red Power Forum, to name a few distractions, there is usually something more productive you could be doing, I'm not a big TV addict but I do watch it in my vegetative states

Yellowstone is an OK show, me and my wife have watched it together and individually, the scenery and country values/ranch lifestyle is neat, it's much too dramatic and gruesome, but in comparison, the chase scenes in Smokey and The Bandit would be more gruesome and dramatic in reality than depicted, if I was to say my biggest qualm with Yellowstone or other modern shows is no end to the drama, say a 16 episode season everybody is only doing well for a .5-1.5 episode stretch at best, then there barn burns or their grandson gets kidnapped, etc., I know the Dukes was cheesy but the farm was lost and bought back in an episode or the odd time two episodes, not hopelessness, despair and murder, I know it doesn't sell in Hollywood but a depiction of a family sticking together and prospering with strong morals and work ethic would be more entertaining to me

Sadly with tv and video games leaving nothing to the imagination. They have to keep turning up the smoke screw to get people to watch their stuff. 

My boys all like Yellow Stone, I have not seen it yet mainly because I haven't found the time. 

I am in the house tonight but have NFR Round 1 on.
