If you managed to look through the internet and stumble upon this review of the new series, then welcome and be prepared as you will not find me writing praises about it, but lets first start with a short description of the series:
“The Outpost follows Talon (Jessica Green), the lone survivor of a race called ‘Blackbloods.’ Years after her entire village is destroyed by a gang of brutal mercenaries, Talon travels to a lawless fortress on the edge of the civilized world, as she tracks the killers of her family. On her journey to this outpost, Talon discovers she possesses a mysterious supernatural power that she must learn to control in order to save herself, and defend the world against a fanatical religious dictator.”
Sounds interesting, right? You would think it should be a great fantasy TV Show. When you know what you can do with technology today and what channels (CW TV and SyFy acquired the rights to show it) it’s on, you would imagine it would be great, after all Vampire Diaries and Killjoys run on those channels too, but that’s not the case here.
This series feels like some low budged fan fiction.
The trailer looks better than the show itself. The fight scene in the first episode is so bad, as if filmed by I don’t know children… The actors and actresses are bad too. Bland emotions on their faces and so cliché for 2018.The old Fantasy shows like “Xena: Worrier Princess” (1995-2001) and Hercules (1995-1999) were way much better and they were shows from the 90’s. The pilot of the “Legend of the Seeker “ (2008-2010) was way way better than this one.
It did not manage to grab my attention at all and for a big network series it’s a full disappointment for me. I thought I would give the second episode a chance but it did only strengthened my opinion of a failure about it and I will not waist any more time on it.
All in all if I need to rate it I will give it 2 out of 10, do not waste your time with it. It did not deliver and it will not in the future. If someone would ask me I would tell them re-cast it, find someone who can has experience with effects and if its about the money find a good investor and re-do it, that’s it.
If you have watched it and you disagree with me please share your opinion in a comment below, will be glad to read it.
