Storyline

The present day oil boom in North Dakota is tempting the young and ambitious to try their luck in the black gold business. Such are Billy and Cody LeFever, a young married couple that's just arrive in a North Dakotan town famous for its rich oil fields. They don't know anyone there, but Billy is ambitious and always has an idea on how to start some small business, while modest Cody makes friends easily and just wants to make a home for themselves there, even if they have to compromise and do something much more common and less glamorous and profitable than partaking in the oil business. While Cody goes to find them a place to live and a job for herself, Billy spends all the money they have, most of which came from their friends back home who pitched in to help them build a tiny starting capital, to buy a modestly lucrative plot of land owned by old and bitter Clifton Lundegren. The deal is made after some tough negotiating, but then notorious local oil baron Hap Briggs offers Billy a ...

Uninformed and deceptive
1 October 2015 | by imprttunerSee all my reviews

I will lead this off by saying I'm not a fan of the evening soaps format. I wasn't a fan of Revenge, and am more of a fan of the action or detective style shows.

My beef with this show isn't so much in the content, but with the depiction of my state. We have no mountains, real oil equipment does not look like cellphone towers, and the whole wild west vibe going on is way off base. Sure we've prospered as an area due to the increased revenue that the oil production has brought, but the nights of neon lights and debauchery are limited to the inside of the bars, and not the main drag. With prosperity comes the inherent troublemakers trying to make a buck, but Williston and the surrounding communities have been working very hard to change peoples perception of what it's like being in the middle of a boom area, and show's like this make all the steps forward look like a waste of time.

The oil industry is not that exciting so I understand that you have to amp up the drama, but I wonder if the producers even bothered to scout the area prior to deciding to film in Utah for the tax breaks, instead of using the actual prairie for it's backdrop.
