Critic Reviews for Outlaw Country

In the absence of Captain Cold throughout these six episodes, Purcell has had the opportunity to show that he's possibly just as compelling a performer as Wentworth Miller, and the writers room allows for this through strong character moments.

"Outlaw Country" managed to deliver plenty of great moments to set itself apart. Plus, more Jonah Hex is never a bad thing.

So even though the timeline of the week was kind of a bust, the character interactions were amazing, continuing the badass nature of this season, and Ray should have gotten what he needs to make a new ATOM suit.

It was hard not to be stoked for the ending as it played out just like the setup for a comic book crossover.

The Wild West setting wasn't quite as appealing the second time around, though Johnathan Schaech's Jonah Hex is still a fun addition to the mix.

Although 'Outlaw Country' was a fun return to the Wild West and provided compelling character development for individuals as well as the team as a whole, the episode takes another step away from their overarching storylines.

... a fun superhero-meets-Western smackdown.

Entertaining fluff, but not "holy crap I gotta get home for tonight's Legends" anymore.

"Outlaw Country" rises to that challenge with a briskly paced script full of character development, humor, and exciting action sequences.
