TV Review: The Son

After a 30 year hiatus, Pierce Brosnan is back on our tv screens in The Son. His role as Eli McCullough the patriarch of the McCullough clan is certainly worth coming back to the tv for: he’s a survivor, mean, gentle, confused, conflicted and larger than life. With the addition of The Son, it truly feels as if we are in the platinum age of television.

The Son is set on the Pulitzer Prize-shortlisted book of the same name. It tells the story of Eli McCullough who at the age of 13 loses his family after a band of Comanche Native Americans storm his Texas homestead. The first episode shows the capture and then jumps forward 70 years showing his success and the family he now presides over. The opening episode is slow in parts but the attention to detail astounding.

The opening episode is slow in parts but the attention to detail astounding. Whilst this is a retelling of the Western story, it is so much more than that. It is a story of survival, parental desire for their children to succeed and greed. The Son is destined to be must watch television.



The Son airs Tuesdays at 9pm on AMC exclusive to BT.

Ros is as picky about what she watches as what she eats. She watches movies alone and dines solo too (a new trend perhaps?!). As a self confessed scaredy cat Ros doesn’t watch horror films, even Goosebumps made her jump in parts!
