1883 limited series:- synopsis

1883, a Yellowstone origin story, follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land – Montana. While making this momentous journey, the Dutton family comes across all sorts of challenges and these hurdles are the crux of this show.

1883 limited series:- a brief review

I loved the efforts put up by the entire cast and crew of this fictional historical tale to create an authentic and raw setup of the wild-wild Western world of the United States of America in the 1880s period. Even the costumes lent their credibility. The stories about the indigenous Native Americans also seemed to be true. Besides, a couple of famous actors have portrayed the roles of actual historical personalities, viz., Tom Hanks as General George Meade and Billy Bob Thornton as Timothy Isaiah “Longhair Jim” Courtright.

All in all, along with Isabel May, the real-life husband and wife duo – Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill did a good job. Besides, this show has a good storyline and it boasts some of the great actors in its ensemble, who have done a good job in it. It takes us back into the modern history of the United States of America, how the West was won and how immigrant people from Europe (and other places) planted their roots and made them their homes in North America.

May I remind you all that in the final episode of this series, the Indian Chieftain states that his people will rise up in 7 generations to take back their land? 7 generations are roughly 150 years – this would mean around the 2033 year. I have already watched and shared the review of the season – one of the 1923 series here, now I am currently watching the Yellowstone series and can not wait to know the fate of the prediction Indian Chieftains in the future, as it has been mentioned above.

These TV series – 1883 (19th century), 1923 (20th century) and Yellowstone (21st century) were created by screenwriter and director Taylor Sheridan. So, these shows are cut from the same cloth. They narrate the story of the Dutton family in different eras; with each period having its own set of problems. It is interesting to learn about the lives of people in three different eras in America.
