Not remotely close, other than the fact that both are centered on powerful families. Yellowstone is like if they stripped all the comedy, rich dialogue, social commentary, and tight plotting out of Succession; moved it to Montana; made all the characters paper thin and one note; and added ridiculous amounts of over-the-top drama and action.

Succession writing also doesn't babysit its characters. Sheridan keeps the main characters in safe gray areas because he very much panders to a demographic with them.

Which is a shame because I really loves Hell or Highwater and Windriver.

Someone said the scenery is the best character in Yellowstone and I couldn’t agree more.

Seeing Kelly Reilly in tight fitting clothing is a close second.

Haha I love Succession and have only seen one extended scene from Yellowstone, but I had a feeling it was exactly as you described.

1883 is drastically better. Couldn't stand Yellowstone, but 1883 was great.
