Outcasts is a science fiction series about humans living on a different world; Carpathia. They face new challenges on this planet; viruses, climate, history and aboriginal beings. This british SciFi has alot of drama, a weak storyline and a couple bad actors. The music could be better as well. The show wasn't bad there is better shows out there.

OUTCASTS - SEASON ONE

The show has some ponderous moments and its characters are sometimes guilty of not asking and answering direct questions that would give them valuable information. But eight episodes isn't too much of a commitment, and Outcasts at least has thematic and character-driven ambitions, as well as a gorgeously weird setting.

This show feels like a British version of "Terra Nova." Set in the future, human kind settles on a foreign planet and faces new dangers. I really liked this show, but unfortunately it was cancelled too soon.

The weakest point of the show was the alien planet - there was no attempt to make it look alien in any way, shape or form. No discussion of parallel evolution, although from the way the plot advanced they really should have made a point of it - it would have taken a line or two early in the series to deal with a distracting issue (the fact that the world looked so very earthlike) and it would have been foreshadowing.

There was some very lazy writing in other ways too. Too many secrets kept from the colonists 'to prevent panic', especially given the fairly realistic level of panic shown when actual threats arose (lower than most lazily written shows).

There was an awful lot of melodramatic character interaction. A major antagonist kept sneering at one of the protagonists for being overly idealistic and building a utopia, which was fairly ironic given the pragmatism to cynicism of the other characters actions.

There was some 'love is the greatest power of all' gloss which was consistent throughout the whole series, and a strange, ill thought out, bias against religion... It's possible that would have made more sense if there was more worldbuilding going on, but as it was it sort of hung out in a vacuum.

Interesting, with moments of stupidity. Not bad for binge watching. I think they stopped it at the right point.
