I liked it overall. I thought I cussed a lot, but those folks like to drop some F bombs lol. I love the scenery. I didn't like the part where they pulled the baby calf, then the calf got right up and sprinted off....like it was at least a few days old. Since the show is about a ranch, they should have been a little more accurate with that part.

It was good, but not great. It could be a lot closer to great if they went to the trouble to be more realistic with the ranching scenes... I mean, anyone who was raised on a cattle operation and has spent time with horses can't help but be critical of several of the scenes from the first episode. It actually started with the horse that was wounded by the wreck in the opening scene... he wasn't even wild eyed or spooky from the trauma, they just tossed in some whickering and called it good. They also kinda lost me when they pulled up to a gate, then threw the calf pullers over it and climbed it. Nah, that ain't how it woulda happened. There's several other similar things but that newborn calf runnin' off like he was almost a ropin' calf really made a statement on just how unauthentic the cowboy scenes are going to be done. I am a big Kevin Costner fan and based on his previous work it's a bit surprising that these things are overlooked in a project that he is involved in.

Like many of us, I will choose to overlook the lack of realism enough to enjoy the raw entertainment and high drama that the show brings. It's just Hollywood anyway, right? What more can we really expect?

Thought it was pretty good, the only Ranch scene so far that was laughable was the Calf deliver scene, when it trotted off.

I liked it and will continue to watch. Too many angles for the wife though, I had to have an explanation session at every commercial break. I asked her if she wanted to watch the encore at 10 so she could follow along this time but got the eye roll.

Wife and I laughed at that also. I was like they took the puller but left the truck??

Over all I liked it and will continue to watch. Beats 99% of the rest of TV

Modern day Open Range meets Dances With Wolves meets Dynasty. Much drama.

That calf scene made me sit up a yell at the t.v. The wife asked me what I was so worked up about. I told her. She says something to the effect of "you know that do you?" I said something along the lines of "i may not know much, but yeah, i know that." Hollywood gotta love it.

I also think the stretch of highway in one of the road scenes was an exact match for a stretch of highway in Hell or High Water.

I'm in though...

Hey...it's Hollywood so ya' know...if every Cop, Medic, FD or western HAD to be authentic, I would never watch anything on the Tube.

Now, with that said, I like Costner in his "older years" than when he was a pup. I really enjoyed the Hatfields/McCoy series he was in!! Not a bad show at all, but will wait until the next episode to make up my mind. Like said before, a little slow developing the plot but will give it time...

Yes, my on off button works good on my tv. Saw where Kev went on the "Spew" (view) to voice his displeasure about the undocumented (illegal) children. Said, "I'm not recognizing America anymore".Well Kev, I don't either because people of your ilk are turning it into a ****hole. My .02.

They lost me with cowboys fishing off their horses. Really?

Then the “newcomers” float by in their boat fishing? Really again?

His last name really isn't Sheridan, but I'm sure you know that. We were friends when we were kids. We used to lease their property for cattle and farming. I have often wondered where and what he was doing after they sold their farm. Great family, Great memories!

Fishing off the horses did seem a lot hokey. But I understand that lots of people do access fishing spots via boat on those trout rivers through private property. Lots of contention over public "stream access" and private land issues.

She still have her red hair? I really enjoyed the time that I spent with them. Stayed with them in Fort Worth for a week one summer and got the worst sun burn I ever had, but had the greatest time.

Erbody that grew up country KNOWS how to chew a toothpick! 1st you don’t use them city slicker square tooth picks, you use the round ones. Second you don’t keep it in the middle of your mouth, you let it settle in the corner!
