  • Tulsa King

    Taylor Sheridan is a one man industry these days isnt he? The only man who seems to do more is Ryan Murphy. I think I've seen at least the first episode of all of both of their various series and haven't liked any of them. Until now!

    This is just 2 episodes in but its looking like some good trash. Stallone's a Mafioso getting out of prison after 25 years inside. Instead of being welcomed back to the family with open arms he gets consigned to start things up in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

    It's completely ridiculous. To the cultured TV viewer it will instantly bring to mind Banshee and Ozark. It's not as ridiculous as Banshee but it's a lot more ridiculous than Ozark. It's a happy middle ground where it gets to have a sense of humour and be larger than life without being completely a cartoon.

    So far, I dig it.

    Watched the first episode and it's a lot of fun. Sheridan certainly knows how to get you hooked fast. Great to see Stallone playing an actual character. I'm probably only going to get the first two episodes on regular Paramount Network and then they'll make me sign up for Paramount+ to see the rest. Oh well, once it hits disc I'll catch up with it (and 1883, Mayor of Kingstown and S5 of Yellowstone).

    Now that all of the Sheridan shows are pay-per-view, it begs the question: what the hell is the point of the Paramount Network?
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

      Paramount Plus has been strong this year. Loved, loved The Offer. Super Pumped was most excellent. Now Tulsa King is near the top of my weekly viewing.

      I don't know if it's the same overseas but Paramount Plus has a serious bandwidth issue. All the other services start as soon as you press play and never drop out but PP is hit and miss. Nothing worse than suddenly having buffering in the middel of a good episode. PP is the service is the only service that does that to me.
