Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the reality series Outlaw Country features lots of police activity, guns, and physical altercations. The language is strong ("ass," "bitch," curses bleeped); drinking (wine, beer) and cigarette smoking is frequent. Images of illegal drugs and other paraphernalia is sometimes shown. There's some occasional sexy dancing, and lots of talk about illegal activities, too. Revelation Tattoo Shop is featured; the show also boasts a commercial soundtrack. It's not meant for kids.
Is It Any Good?
WGN America's first original unscripted series attempts to tell the dramatic story of two feuding sets of brothers against a backdrop of a modern -- but still wild -- West. But despite the Cooks' attempts to compare the Monks to infamous sibling gangs like the infamous Jesse and Frank James, they fail to generate any real sense that the Monks are actually responsible for the town's crime wave. Their obsession with John and Josh also makes them seem foolishly overzealous.
Unrelated scenes are intertwined and offered out of context to reinforce the purported tensions between the brothers. The recognizable mixture of pre-planned encounters and re-created scenes, many of which feature cast members playing up to the cameras, is also designed to create drama. The result is a show that may lack a script, but still reads like bad fiction.
Did we miss something on diversity?
