    Talky and grim, and more than a little bland, Outcasts almost entirely lacks humor, wonder and engaging characters.

    With none of the flair or self-deprecating wit that have defined other British sci-fi imports ("Torchwood," "Primeval"), Outcasts strands a number of talented performers, including Mr. Bamber, Eric Mabius and Liam Cunningham, on a world of wooden dialogue and interplanetary cliches.

It is not something I have seen done before which I liked. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I would really like for this show to succeed, but at the moment the plot lines and predicaments of the main characters don't seem to be that compelling. Disappointing to see Jaime Bamber exit stage right in the pilot, but at least it might free him up to do a "Battlestar Galactica" sequel, which is all I really want anyway. Full Review »
