  1. This show could have been inspired by LaMonica Garrett’s ‘Thomas’ character in 1883, Thomas’s life would have made an interesting mini series, including his early history in the U.S. military, still this new Sheridan ‘Western’ looks interesting enough. Taylor Sheridan is providing leadership with his original creative concepts, he is like a shining light at the moment, especially for male viewers.
