Trivia

As Frontier is set on the coast and interior of eastern Canada, it is not strictly a "western", but a period piece similar to The Last of the Mohicans; taking place roughly a generation later. It is the first of two frontier dramas from Netflix. The second series is Godless (2017), which is a true Western. See more »

Going nowhere fast

This show is impressively simple. The overall setting surrounding the main plot could have made for some very interesting, informative and vicious entertainment. Instead, it appears to be absolutely boiled down to it's simplest possible parts.

Scriptwise, it is almost like "how not to" tutorial for new writers. The main plot, which is supposed to be the focus lies vaguely in the background. Several minor and ultimately meaningless and uninteresting subplots are forced in for intrigue. Four or five different factions all have several subordinate characters with their separate alliances which intermingle to farcical proportions. It is obviously meant to increase depth and drama for all the characters but in a transparently shallow and meaningless way.

Character interactions are not believable and the characters themselves are extremely stereotypical. All the male characters have grossly primitive motivations and actions, and nearly all female characters are strong independent agents to a historically anachronistic and revisionist degree.

The only group that has anything close to a serious treatment is the native tribe. The matriarch and lead warrior of the tribe have predictable but fair parts. Jason Momoa repeats his character from Game of Thrones and does it well as far as that goes. Landon Liboiron's part is nothing more than a Watson, slipping effortlessly around to explain and elaborate for the viewer, unnecessarily so. The whole thing would have been better suited as a film when the padding and filler stand out so painfully obvious.
