Story:
Anyone have a chance to watch this spinoff of YELLOWSTONE?

Virgil Lantey:
We watch Yellowstone (it's filmed just a few miles away) but didn't get into 1883 because we don't have Paramount Plus.

Buckaroo Lou:
I watched the entire series. Was ok, but could use some language cleaning up. I just don't think folks used the F word back then. Something else maybe but not that particular word. I guess I could be wrong though. My personal opinion is it would have been a great series if the language had not been so bad.

That was indeed a topic of discussion when DEADWOOD came out.


Jesse Sheidlower, the American editor of the Oxford English Dictionary and the scholar of cussing who wrote The F-Word, says probably not. Not that frontiersmen were genteel. “There were cursing contests when cowboys would get together and insult each other,” he says. But “the evidence that we have is that they were using more religious blasphemy than the sexual insults which are popular today.”

Instead, it was decided that the show would use current profanity in order for the words to have the same impact on modern audiences as the blasphemous ones did back in the 1870s

We're curious - what's you/your neighbors/locals in general opinion on the accuracy of the series' tone?
