What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the AMC cable channel, The Son stars Pierce Brosnan, Henry Garrett, Sydney Lucas, Carlos Bardem, Jacob Lofland, Zahn McClarnon, Paola Núñez, David Wilson Barnes, Jess Weixler, and Elizabeth Frances. The series, which is simulcast on SundanceTV, follows three generations of the McCullough family and features the metamorphosis of Eli McCullough (Brosnan). The family patriarch, Eli, changes over the years from an affable innocent into a conniving killer.
After losing everything on the wild frontier, Eli rebounds to build a lasting ranching and oil dynasty and, in time, grows exceedingly wealthy. In flashbacks, The Son also recounts the relationship between young Eli (Lofland) and Comanche war chief Toshaway (McClarnon), who served as his father figure. Throughout, The Son delves into the rise of the McCullough family empire.
Season One Ratings
This show premiered to mediocre ratings and the numbers have not gotten any better in later weeks. Still, The Son TV show airs on Saturday nights and AMC has a few other shows that air on weekdays and are performing worse. The cable channel could easily cancel The Son but they could keep it around because they have Pierce Brosnan as a star. I’m keeping an eye on this one.
