Outsiders: Season One Ratings

Wgn America is still pretty new to producing their own original dramas so it was unclear how bad the ratings would have to be before they cancelled a show. Now that they've cancelled Manhattan, we have a better idea. Will Outsiders be the second to go or, will it be renewed for season two? Stay tuned.

A drama series, Outsiders is set in the rugged hills of Appalachia and follows the Farrell clan. They are a tight-knit family of renegades who have lived atop Shay Mountain for over two hundred years and are at odds with those who live outside of their community. The cast includes David Morse, Thomas M. Wright, Ryan Hurst, Joe Anderson, Gillian Alexy, Kyle Gallner, Christina Jackson, Francie Swift, and Phyllis Somerville.

Wgn’s Outsiders Will Fill the Sons of Anarchy–Size Hole in Your Heart

Wgn’s Outsiders Will Fill the Sons of Anarchy–Size Hole in Your Heart
If you’re looking for a show to fill that Sons of Anarchy–size hole in your booze-and-nicotine-saturated heart, Wgn's Outsiders will do the trick. Poised somewhere between Quality TV pretentiousness and a 1970s drive-in picture that might have starred the pre–Smokey and the Bandit Burt Reynolds, it fits the template that fans of genre filmmaking have dubbed “whitesploitation,” recasting the lives of an insulated rural family as a macho melodrama about land and tradition.The Farrells, a clan of about 200 overseen by a matriarch called Lady Ray (Phyllis Somerville), have lived on the fictional Shay Mountain for two centuries, practicing a lifestyle that time forgot (bacchanals, knife skills). They live off the grid, are distrustful of money and guns, and have very little contact with the supposedly civilized world down below, except when they hop onto their all-terrain vehicles and rampage through nearby towns to get supplies they

TV Review: ‘Outsiders’

TV Review: ‘Outsiders’
Wgn America is still seeking to define itself, having garnered acclaim for “Manhattan,” if less for “Salem.” With “Outsiders,” its newest drama, the Tribune programmer zeroes in on FX Lite territory, in an Appalachian-set series peppered with hints of “Sons of Anarchy” and “Justified,” and perhaps a pinch of “Mad Max” for good measure. Featuring David Morse and Thomas M. Wright (again terrific after his turn in “The Bridge”), the casting trumps much of the material, but the series quickly establishes a strong sense of place in the wilds of a still-untamed pocket of America.

At the center of it all are the Farrells, a rural clan that lives by its own brutal code and traditions, ensconced on the mountain it has occupied for 200 years. The group exists under what amounts to an uneasy truce with the townsfolk below, with members occasionally venturing down to thieve some necessary supplies, but otherwise minding their own business.

The Good Wife Recap: Bye, Alicia

The Good Wife Recap: Bye, Alicia
Like an exquisite meal sitting on a wobbly restaurant table, this week’s installment of The Good Wife had its delicious moments — marred by the intermittent/aggravating vibe that somebody at the top of the food chain really ought to be paying a little more attention to detail.

I mean, do we honestly believe Chicago drug kingpin Lemond Bishop would leave all his precious secrets on an unguarded computer in his home office? Or that Alicia and Diane would ignore their own gut instincts and professional experience — and put their faith in He Who Could Double as a Sneering, D.
