Who says history is boring? We all know the old days of sitting bored at our desks or on the class carpet in school, counting down the minutes we had left until lunch. History didn’t have to be that way then and it certainly doesn’t need to be now. Sure, we can go into the common conversation about how important it is to study the past so we can learn from it, never repeating our mistakes.
History, however, can be quite entertaining! Does the public really pay attention to every nook and cranny of historical dramas and comedies? Of course not, according to Martin Scorsese who’s heavily deemed the greatest movie director of all time, one-hundred percent accuracy is boring. Sometimes, we turn to the past for mere entertainment.
We’re not going to dive into the accuracy of 1883, it’s just an example of what many see as a gritty piece of historical entertainment.

For those of us not quite so familiar with the franchise, the official synopsis reads, “1883 follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America.
Just last month, 1883 released their first teaser art, featuring a burned-out covered wagon on the plains. When the show is complete, it’ll take you to the story of Yellowstone. The Dutton family patriarch John Dutton controls the greatest contiguous ranch in the United States. It’s under constant attack by folks outside the borders – Indian reservation, America’s first National Park, and land developers.
Can fans watch it for free online? There doesn’t appear to be a way so far, but only time will tell. Don’t forget about Paramount’s free trial.
