Tulsa King is now on Paramount+. Well two episodes of it anyway. You can’t really review it without having seen the whole thing, but having watched both episodes so far I’m starting to wonder if it’s any good.
The show is from Taylor Sheridon, writer of both Sicario movies and write/director of Yellowstone. While I like the former, I had to quit the latter due to scowling feminism/wokeness (going against odd claims that the show is anti-woke). When Sheridan had a 88lb feminist beat up a barn full of rugged cowboys I despaired at yet more political instruction before quickly ceasing to give any fucks and abandoning it.
Anyway, thus far the show is milquetoast, feeble. And it takes Sylvester Stallone down a path that is often ruinous – comedy. Or should we say dramedy here? One thing is for sure, it’s gangsterism attempting some funnies and The Sopranos’ Terence Winter is involved, but don’t expect any of this;
Is it any good? So far, it doesn’t look like it is. But I’m going to keep watching, so I don’t know what that says about things. Only for Stallone though.
Should we hang in there and give Tulsa King a chance?
