It's all a bit fuzzy, but then it's all in good fun. Television has plenty of room for strong female characters. Welcome to the party, Wynonna.

The characters and story tend to border on parody, while the special effects and fight scenes are about as corny as they come. Still, there's a certain charm to Wynonna and her compatriots.

It's important to know going into Wynonna Earp that you are not going to find much originality in this plot structure. You will, however, find a lot of fun.

If you're looking for a decent supernatural western then Wynonna Earp is the show for you. Yes, it does have a lot to improve on, but there's enough mystery and reveals in the first episode to make you want to watch one more.

Wynonna Earp is something different for Syfy, and something that also feels different to anything we're seeing on TV currently, thanks not only to its setting, but its prominent placement of so many strong, profane, kickass female characters.

Scrofano is doing her part to make Wynonna Earp a slice of gritty, goofy fun; let's hope the show can follow suit.

Audience Reviews for Wynonna Earp: Season 1

½

Loosely based on a graphic novel, Wynonna Earp is a convoluted supernatural western. Season 1 follows Wyatt Earp's great granddaughter, Wynonna, as she returns to her hometown to face off with the resurrected spirits of the men that Wyatt killed; which are bound to the Ghost River Triangle by a curse. Melanie Scrofano gives a strong performance as the lead, and Tim Rozon has a certain charm as the rascally immoral Doc Holliday. But the writing isn't very good; particularly the relationship dramas, which are obvious and pandering. Also, the mythology of the Earp Curse and the Revenants is hard to follow. And the special effects and makeup for the Revenants aren't that good either. A generic, third rate fantasy series, Wynonna Earp delivers a rather weak first season.
