Critic Reviews for Frontier Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (10)

It crams too much fur-trading history into six overstuffed episodes, introducing two dozen hastily sketched minor characters, many of whom have nothing to do but stand around and discuss the underused Momoa.

Frontier is moderately entertaining, but consistently unchallenging.

Jan 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Characters don't seem to have inner lives so much as they have easily defined goals that they keep talking about, as if they're trying to state the objectives of a video game.

Excessive exposition is a problem all around the world, really.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

It does the best it could within the constraints placed upon it, but the end result is a well-intended and pretty good scripted drama that can't quite navigate its way to greatness.

There's enough intrigue, bloodshed, and shots of gorgeous snow-capped mountains to keep fans of rowdy costume dramas coming back for more.

For sharply defined characters and more straightforward genre kicks, go with Frontier.

An action-packed, uncomplicated and very entertaining yarn about the cutthroats who created this country by plundering it

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

In any case, at just six episodes this first season should make an appealing snack for fans of the considerably more spectacular Black Sails.

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