Spoiler-Free Review of “Outer Range” on Prime Video: A Unique Mashup of Genres

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“The world has been waiting for something like this…”

Outer Range premiered on Prime Video on April 15th 2022 with the first two episodes available to stream now. There will be eight episodes in total. The supernatural mystery series stars Josh Brolin, Imogen Poots, Tom Pelphrey and Noah Reid. Each episode runs for approximately 55-58 minutes.

Two families feud over ranch land when a mysterious black void emerges in the middle of their pasture.

Here is the trailer:

Outer Range has a Yellowstone feel mixed in with Twin Peaks, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

A combo of genres I didn’t know I needed…

A western/sci-fi mystery may seem really far-fetched and it kind of is, but it somehow works here. I thought the mashup was the show’s strongest point. It really sets it apart from other shows that it would normally pale in comparison to. I think this gives it an edge of originality which will allow it to branch off into whatever story it wants to tell.

Josh Brolin…

I mean, I pretty much love him in anything so it works in the show’s favor that he is the main star. So far he is stealing the show for me but there are some other characters that are really interesting as well and the acting is pretty solid.

The Cons:

Really really slow moving…

At one point I thought I had been watching Josh Brolin’s character walk back to the farm for over twenty minutes. The pacing really drags and it takes way too long for things to happen. This needs to improve drastically to hold my interest.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

There is an interesting mystery here worth exploring and of course I want to know more about it, but the pacing needs to improve drastically so that I can stay awake for the rest of the episodes. Either way, I’m in for now…

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Outer Range in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!
