Ranch, Rodeo and Randomness

By Pepper Stewart

Yellowstone season four is here and plenty of people saw it. Season four has dominated the television and streaming services with more than 14 million viewers who tuned in to see what happened. Season three ended with a bang, really a large bang, and shots fired. When Sunday evening came around, living rooms from the west to east coast were ready to witness the creative genius of Taylor Sheridan. I had the opportunity to work on the prequel Y1883 and see Sheridan in action, and he is a man of many talents.


Yellowstone has been called a “western Sopranos.” The story lines are at times a bit rough, but it works, and works well. With a show like Yellowstone there is no middle ground, you either like it or you don’t, and the numbers show as it dominated on premiere night that the number one drama on television is back.


We met a new character Carter (Australian Finn Little) in his American accent. After the story of his struggles, Beth takes a liking to the boy. Rip not so much, but after a tough heart-to-heart with Rip, he makes his way to the Yellowstone.
