A fateful meeting in 1869 Alberta-Montana border country leads to tragedy, a struggle for survival and the search for justice and renewal. STRANGE EMPIRE is a Western whose heroes are women. With most of their men gone, and those who remain battling for control, the women struggle to survive, to find their independence, and to build a life in which to thrive and raise families. As the stories of Janestown's citizens unfold we see the clash between a power-hungry father and son and the deep prejudices among races, but also the start of something akin to community in this Wild West. Western stories take civilization as a goal; they begin in blood, and end in the morality of Main Street. Starring Cara Gee as Kat Loving, Melissa Farman as Dr. Rebecca Blithely and Tattiawna Jones as Isabelle Slotter. Written by Jim

god awful
28 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

I watched until episode three hoping it would improve. It did not.

It is hilariously awful.

The acting is uniformly atrocious.

The "plot" is ridiculous.

The casting choices equally poor -especially the "marshal".

Why is it impossible for the CBC, with a billion dollar a year budget to put together one half decent show.? It is an embarrassment to Canada.

The people who produced, directed, casted, wrote, and acted in this show need to find other lines of work.
