Creepy, haunting and packed with jump-scares, you’ll never feel safe to go back in the water.

If, like us, you like your horror films frothing and foaming with supernatural creatures and haunting visuals, this is one to cast your nets for.

Yellowstone Season 2 Episode 1 Review: A Thundering

The return of the cable ratings success story Yellowstone means a lot of new story to slug through.




This Yellowstone review contains spoilers.

Yellowstone Season 2 Episode 1

Earlier this morning, before the Yellowstone season 2 premiere on Paramount Network, the cable network announced in a press release that it had ordered a third season of the ratings success. The next batch of 10 episodes, which will continue the 10-episode run that began tonight, will premiere sometime in 2020. Oh, and remember Josh Holloway from Lost? He’s going to be in it, too.

Discussing Yellowstone’s season 3 renewal may be a strange way to begin a recap of “A Thundering,” the season 2 premiere episode, but it’s also an appropriate one. Three episodes into its initial run last summer, the drama series from Sicario and Hell or High Water writer Taylor Sheridan quickly became one of basic cable’s most-watched programs

Emmy spotlight: Kevin Costner modernizes the image of the Wild West on the Paramount Network’s ‘Yellowstone’

Emmy spotlight: Kevin Costner modernizes the image of the Wild West on the Paramount Network’s ‘Yellowstone’
Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, Ian McShane, Ed Harris, Chris Cooper — all these performers are part of a vanishing breed of actor who can pull off being a cowboy in movies and on TV.

But could they be believable as a modern-day rancher protecting his family’s Montana cattle ranch that is the size of Rhode Island from being encroached upon by lumber companies, oil drillers, home builders, Native American casino interests and others looking to make a killing by destroying nature in the raw.

There is one actor who has the giddy-up to play such a nuanced patriarch and not devolve into a J.R. Ewing caricature and that is Kevin Costner. He’s proven that on the Paramount Network’s popular neo-Western “Yellowstone” as the head of the Dutton clan on a spread where you are just as likely to bump into a designer-suited

Hollywood has deputized Taylor Sheridan as the trail master of a new breed of 21st century Westerns. The actor turned screenwriter known for his lawman David Hale on FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” first tackled the big screen with his so-called “frontier trilogy”: 2015’s “Sicario,”a Mexican drug-war thriller; 2016’s Texas-set “Hell or High Water,” about modern-day bank-robbing brothers; and 2017’s “Wind River,” the Lone Star native’s directorial debut that focused on the sad fates of Native Americans on a Wyoming reservation.

Sheridan struck gold with an Oscar nomination for his original script for “Hell or High Water,” which was also nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Jeff Bridges and Best Editing.

Last year, Sheridan went full-on westward ho with the arrival of “Yellowstone” on the newly minted cable channel Paramount Network. The cross between “Dallas” and old-school ‘60s TV Westerns like “The Rifleman” and “Gunsmoke
