|I enjoy it yet always come away feeling this show wasnít too far off from it being so much better than it has been.|
| The land and scenery is as gorgeous as that land really is.
As in all Westerns, the land is a star onto itself and dominates the motivations of many of the characters.
The flavor and details of ranch life seem to match what I know of it
Costner is good enough. The Luke Grimes and his wife characters are good enough and interesting enough.
It has the classic Western fight between races and interests ( water, development, land, family feuding intensified because of the importance and wealth of land based assets is not distributable and does not allow much time away from manual labor. It has the corrupt town politicians and the out of state resource/land grabbers. It has the kid variation a la Shane. It has the folks seeking redemption.
It is starting to touch on the role of the local rodeo's and ranch hand life in the Wyoming/Western Washington/Idaho/Montana life style.
It wastes Kelly Reilly or the character is too angry to be real or Kelly Reilly is one dimensional or all of the above.
Don't like the character as written who is the leader of the Native Americans.
|Weirdly, although different and less of a Western and more a police show, I liked Longmire a lot. You?|
