It's 3 o'clock on a chilly Wednesday afternoon and I'm chatting with the Bobby Berk from Netflix's Queer Eye. With just two minutes left of our interview, I make sure to squeeze in one very important question: "What show are you obsessed with right now?"
Without missing a beat, Berk tells me, "I just jumped on the Yellowstone bandwagon two days ago. I've refused for years to watch it because I grew up on a ranch...I grew up with cowboys and it's triggering. But it's so good!" At this point I'm already intrigued, even though I don't particularly care for Westerns. But there's something about his enthusiasm that makes me want to go check out the trailer right away. Berk continues, "All the people that have been trying to get me to watch it for years—they were right."
And so it was settled. After watching the official teaser for season one, I decided to check out the first episode for myself. But was it compelling enough to turn me into a bona fide Western fan? Well, not quite (sorry, Bobby).
