Outcast Review

It is quite violent and short lasting!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

Those viewers who were hoping for a Battlestar Galactica-worthy sci-fi series may be seriously disappointed by OUTCASTS, a series imported from the U.K. (where it was short-lived).

The story's pace is slow, with character-driven plot advancements punctuated by quick and disturbing scenes of violence. While the story is supposedly about humanity's potential for redemption, the series often serves only to remind viewers of humanity's capacity for deception and violence.
