Almost 11 million people watch a weekly show that feels like it deserves dozens of deep dives, but we have none.
Look, if there’s one thing we maybe don’t need more of in the world, it’s think-pieces. But I have to admit, sometimes it’s nice to see someone else dissect the themes and story of your favorite shows. It can give you a deeper critical understanding of the series and help you read between the lines of some of the messages and tropes. These are usually written about the most popular television shows. Lost had a ton of them. So did The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and even Succession.
Well, what if I told you there was a show drawing over 10 million viewers a week on network television that was somehow overlooked by critics?
Yes, I’m talking about Yellowstone, the show everyone seems to watch but no one seems to write about. While many called it “Redneck Succession,” or more kindly, “Red State Succession.”
