A patient historical fiction series that, while it could be great, is immensely gratifying as it stands.
30 November 2017 | by dwoolston-09300See all my reviews

I regard Frontier as a lower-tier example of the narrative-heavy shows most famously represented by Game of Thrones, Black Sales, and Vikings. The show has its flaws--the writing and accents often misrepresent the show makers' desired setting, and it is an objectively poor representation of Canadian history via the Hudson Bay Company fur trade. And while I do believe that better historical consultation would realize Frontier's potential and produce a show as solid as the three listed earlier, these flaws did not prevent me from becoming invested and happily entertained by Frontier's patiently-paced chess-like narrative via the interlacing dynamics between its ensemble of characters, all of whom are wholesome and human. The story begins slowly but grows steadily more intense with each episode, and greatly benefits from all-or-nothing performances by Jason Momoa and Alun Armstrong and beautiful period costuming and production design (to my lay eyes, anyway). Either I'm just an easily-entertained fool, or my patience was rewarded as its plot points violently converged on each other in the later half of season 1. I was thrilled when Netflix released Season 2.
