Although still watchable, this season of Yellowstone is the blah-est one yet. It’s more concerned with doing a soft reset, evolving from The (Cowboy) Sopranos to This is Us: Cowboy Edition, than building off previous seasons. The problem is that there is no true villain, and it’s more interested in setting up two spinoffs (6666 and 1883) than telling its own story. And enough with the cowboying montages (seriously, it’s like 5-10 minutes per episode). It all makes the season feel like filler. Everything else that made Yellowstone excellent is still there, but the writing is sorely lacking this time.
