I started watching this show from day one, but I have never read any of the comics or graphic novels. The show is a different take for the Horror genre and the shows darkness really helps Outcast stand out from the other shows currently out on TV. Season 1 was Great though Season 2 has a few bumps along the way, but season 2 is still worth watching. I don't know why Season 2 took so long to debut in the U.S. I hope the delay doesn't hurt viewership ratings on Cinemax. Hopefully season 3 can start production in the latter half of 2018 or 2019. I would recommend this show for anyone who likes the horror/graphic novel genre and doesn't want to be bothered by commercials or cut scenes b/c they may be too intense or bloody for the weak at heart. The only drawback is I would strongly recommend watching this show from the beginning. If you are a new Fan Enjoy the show and keep Kickass Outcast!
