Still a good western series even after all these years
14 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a sophomore in high school when I first saw The Outcasts on television. At the time I really thought it was a great show, especially significant for the times we were going through. I lived just outside Newark at the time, and only the year before we had just been through the riots there, so the atmosphere was still very tense, just a year later. I thought this show was an interesting attempt to unite black and white during a time when, even earlier in our country's history there was an almost or perhaps even greater tumultuous era when man was treating man to his detriment and would do so for decades to come, despite his race or creed.

Watching the show again as I've been doing, I am happy to find that, unlike many shows made during the late '60's and '70's, this one has not shown any real signs of being dated from having been made during that time. The black/white issues were constrained to and dealt entirely within the confines of the post-Civil War era, showing no sign of attempting to influence the program with 1960's civil rights movement bias or agenda by writers or creators.

The only thing I have occasionally wondered about is that both men seem to freely walk into bars and saloons without a care in the world when I would think that, this soon after the end of the war, people might be quite reluctant or even downright angry about having these kind of people in their establishment. Otis Young's character, as a newly freed slave, and a black man, and Don Murray's character, as a young, proud Southerner, whose pride and arrogance might have helped lead to the death of some of the sons and brothers of the men who these two anti-heroes were to run into, was bound to be on the mind of some of those people they met. I think if the writers had had them show some reticence in going into each of these new places, or at least show they were keeping a closer eye on their backs by having someone attack it and show them protecting it successfully, that way we would see just how well they were watching their backs.

Also, luckily, westerns made during that period, unlike comedies and dramas, except on those certain occasions, were pretty much devoid of the bell-bottom pants, afro-style hair cuts, and slang, hip language that was born of that period. These fads, along with lava lamps and flashing psychedelic spotlights against mirrored balls, now having long since gone out of style, have further dated and aged many of those others television shows and movies from that time period, all of which make us wonder, while watching them today, what these people were thinking back then. Either that the 70's would last forever or that their films were not meant to be watched beyond a period of 5 years or more.
