All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

Frontier is moderately entertaining, but consistently unchallenging.

After a decent mixture of action, gore, and drama? Look no further.

February 2, 2017 | Full Review…

Bloody, predictable historical drama about fur trade wars.

January 24, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The series struggles to be compelling beyond the prospect of Momoa making an appearance on screen, and even then, the material rarely rises to meet the effort he puts forth.

The show is not worthy of [Jason Momoa's] talents.

January 19, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Frontier privileges complication and nuance over titillation and pulp - and capitalizes on what television specifically can do in terms of telling a multi-pronged, multi-location story.
