Based on the New York Times best seller and Pulitzer Prize-nominated novel, The Son is a sweeping family saga that spans 150 years and three generations of the McCullough family. The story of Eli McCullough’s transformation from good-natured innocence to calculated violence, as he loses everything on the wild frontier, setting him on the path to building a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege.

i dont understand why the rating is low. honestly, this was a great show and i enjoyed it a lot. everything ended satisfying, although not happy. the characters were compelling, it stayed really interesting all the way through and i really loved the realistic portray of what went down between the whites, mexicans and the comanche. a must watch!

I loved the show ,I hated "Pete" and the actor who played him.Zahn McClarnon and Sydney Lucas steal the show.I thought casting Jacob as the young Eli (Pierce Brosnan's character) was bad ,Jacob does a decent job but hes scrawny and shorter then Pierce.If you like Westerns you'll love the show.I also like that it ended and didn't drag on for 5 seasons .

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
