What can I say, I am sort of a sucker for really any show on The CW. So, when I saw that a new series was going to be released, I had to check out The Outpost. I am sorry that I did.
Full disclosure, when I saw the original trailer teasing the show I was sold. It looked promising: fantasy genre, an element of mystery, sword fighting, – what’s not to like?
The premise of the show isn’t a terrible one. It follows the main character, Talon (played by Jessica Green), as she hunts the men responsible for massacring her village. We learn that she is the last remaining “Blackblood” – essentially magical elves who control intra-dimensional gateways. Her pursuit of these killer’s leads her to the Outpost, a fortress on the furthest edge of civilization. But the promise of the show really ends there.
