FRONTIER (2016 – )


Creators: Peter Blackie, Rob Blackie

Cast: Jason Momoa, Landon Liboiron, Zoe Boyle

This Series is the adventure  following the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade in the late 18th century. The series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights or death, and where delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans can spark  conflicts.

This one you can watch it on Netflix. But the thing is here is how rough and tough was the fur trade business where others will cheat you, steal from you or even kill you plus the fact that one man wants to monopolise it. Young Irish-born Michael Smyth (Landon Liboiron)   tries to steal gunpowder off a fur trade vessel headed overseas to the northern wilds well he hides in the ship and ends up in Canada. His best friend is killed, his girl (Lyla Porter-Follows) is tossed in jail. Benton (Alun Armstrong) who is the  captain on the ship has this idea to sent Micheal to this ruthless fur trader Declan Harp (Jason Momoa) to see who is next move, in return he gets his girl out of jail.


There are subplots here that works well the series is still watchable but I think it is missing  something. The episodes are full of tension, intrigue, and sure enough there are cliffhangers. I love the female characters here that are strong-willed, tough, intelligent  and trying to get trough the day into this man’s world. Back then the women had to be to stand on their own. Not bad for a first season here let’s see if there is an other.
