Strange Empire Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

A fateful meeting in 1869 Alberta-Montana border country leads to tragedy, a struggle for survival and the search for justice and renewal. With most of their men gone, and those who remain battling for control, the women struggle to survive, to find their independence, and to build a life in which to thrive and raise families. As the stories of Janestown's citizens unfold we see the clash between a power-hungry father and son and the deep prejudices among races, but also the start of something akin to community in this Wild West. Western stories take civilization as a goal; they begin in blood, and end in the morality of Main Street.

I enjoyed this tale of the Old West , even tho the scripts have been so-so and the acting in other Western TV shows has probably been better then this cast of new faces.I do like the Leading actress who plays a Half White-Half Indian heroine type , who can handle a gun !
It's no DEADWOOD that's for sure !

It's very easy to see why it didn't get past the first season. Scripts are bad, acting is worse.

I really liked this one, a shame it was cancelled. Great opportunity for a strong female cast. A little predictable and maybe that was part of the problem. Nice to see a good western.

I don't know if there is a good way to explain this show?
It being a one season wonder with much more potential than it was given. If you are a fan of western then you are going to like it. Other wise, it might not be for you.
Has a fantastic cast and a great "hero". Wish it would have lasted longed, but such is life.

Concluded??? Please say it isn't so!! I just power watched all 13 episodes of this "Strange Empire" and it was so good. The cast had their characters down so that I was loving this one and hating that one... not one character had me ambivalent... the story line was riveting and compelled me to continue watching to the end where lo and behold wasn't there an enormous cliff hanger... Did one of the main characters really get buried? was that really Jeremiah Loving?? what will this rag-a-muffin group do? what about Mr. Ling and his people? will the Indians have revenge for all the injustice? will Canada be a refuge or just another prison? I give this show a 5 STAR because it really deserves it. The costumes, sets and especially the writing very convincing. if this show has concluded then please find a way to bring it and these actors back... the chemistry between them seemed so natural.. LOVE this show! Hey wait a minute... it's only concluded in the USA... In CANADA it's on Hiatus!!! WHEE HOOOOO!!! I will keep watching... gosh is Captain John coming back???

Enjoying this era perspective. Interesting reflection of the time period and what could have been.

This offbeat show is incredibly addictive. You can't watch just one episode. The story line, characters, and setting all grow on you.
