The Son season 1 episode 1 review: First Son Of Texas

Duncan Bowles Apr 19, 2017

Viewers tuning in to AMC's Pierce Brosnan vehicle The Son for blood and action may be left wanting. Here's our episode 1 review...

Warning: contains spoilers.

Loss builds resolve. At least that seems to be the main message in AMC’s latest drama The Son, in its debut episode. Opening in 1849 with a focus on a young Eli McCullough, the central protagonist who will grow into the fine form of a bearded Pierce Brosnan, we see him taking up mantle of ‘man of the house’, hunting and showing a large amount of self-assurance. However, it’s not long before his youthful belligerence, and a need to defend his home from invading Comanche, has resulted in his mother and sister being raped and killed, with his surviving brother soon being run through by a spear, leaving him as the sole surviving son.

Eli’s back story is told throughout

The Son Season 1 Episode 1 Review: First Son of Texas

Pierce Brosnan returns to the small screen, and we couldn't be more excited!

While he might not have the best Texas accent we've ever heard, Brosnan still delivers a powerful performance as the older Eli McCullough, who is at the center of this compelling new western drama.

The Son Season 1 Episode 1 and The Son Season 1 Episode 2 introduce us to McCullough in two separate timelines. In them, we learn how the young man who survived a Comanche Indian attack becomes a ruthless cattle baron later in life.

Jacob Lofland is just as powerful as young Eli, as the two timelines converge to give us a clear picture of a man who only wants to protect what's rightfully his.

We are first introduced to Eli as a young man hunting for food for his family while his father is out of town. The family comes under attack by Comanche Indians and his mother and sister are killed.

The Son Season 1 Review

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

Even the most casual western fans know that the genre has lost quite a bit of its lustre over recent decades, at least when it comes to stories that revisit much of the same material covering the 19th Century – frontiers, Indians, cowboys, railroads, and all the usual greatest hits. More recently, the modern western has been at the forefront of cinema and well-realized through relevant epics like last year’s Hell or High Water. In the same way that film starring Jeff Bridges managed to closely inspect the fallout of race relations in West Texas, AMC’s The Son attempts to do the same during the period in between the mid-19th Century and the early 20th, mantled by a frontier on the cusp of the industrial age.

Based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-nominated novel by Philipp Meyer, The Son

‘The Son’ Review: Pierce Brosnan’s AMC Western Tells Two Stories, But Only One Works — SXSW 2017

‘The Son’ Review: Pierce Brosnan’s AMC Western Tells Two Stories, But Only One Works — SXSW 2017
The Son,” aptly, is the story of sons. While one could argue it should’ve then been called “The Sons,” the title of Philipp Meyer, Lee Shipman, and Brian McGreevy’s new AMC series almost feels like an invitation to pick one of the many featured sons, and that’s the one you’ll care about. Even if this is the case, the main protagonist, Eli McCullough — who’s more than likely the titular “Son” — is flawed not only in character, but also in concept. So the many scenes devoted to both the young and old versions of him hamper any enjoyment in the other intriguing characters and makes the first two episodes a bit of a slog.

Primarily focusing on two defining time periods in Eli’s life — set during 1849 and 1915 — the hour-long western incorporates at least three additional sons into the narrative. We meet Young Eli (Jacob Lofland
