Settled in the town of Forthaven on Carpathia, the Outcasts are passionate about their jobs, confident of their ideals and optimistic about the future. They work hard to preserve what they've built on this planet they now call home, having embraced all the challenges that come with forging a new beginning. They are led by President Tate and his core team of Stella, Cass and Fleur--they took charge and settled here first alongside Expeditionaries Mitchell and Jack. The planet offers the possibility for both corruption and redemption; while they try to avoid the mistakes made on Earth, inevitably our heroes cannot escape the human pitfalls of love, greed, lust and a longing for those they've left behind. As they continue to work and live together they come to realise this is no ordinary planet... Is there a greater purpose at work? Mystery lurks around them and threatens the fragile peace of Forthaven.

Personally I would say it looks great, for the most part the acting is great, and the overall story is compelling. Though there are some stumbles at the beginning by episode 4 everything is moving at a fantastic pace. The marketing people decided to say it wasn't a sci-fi, but if you watch it's clear by the 4th episode this is very much a solid sci-fi story, it's just a shame a lot of people had tuned out by them. If you're a fan of adult sci-fi drama give it a go, it's only 8 episodes so you're not losing much time by giving it a shot. The only thing you have to lose is regretting it was cancelled when you get to the end.
It's a bit slow to get going. Seems to have some bizarre and unexplained goings on at first, and a very "annoying" villain. After the first few episodes, I wondered where it was going. A couple of episodes later, I thought "this is getting really interesting". By the finale it had become something not to miss. I was really looking forward to the next series.
There are those that have complained about the props, complained about the acting and complained about it's qualities in comparison with US Sci Fi series.
A lot of US shows are clones and while there are themes in this show that are resonant with some US series, it has a very differrent feel. Most US shows I now find boring clones and Outcasts was differrent.
The show has fallen victim to a lot of viewers having problems finding their feet in a show that requires some thought as a lot of things happen quite bizarrely until some of the threads are brought together towards the end. I think this cost the show BBC1 viewers and attracted a lot of hostility for supposed SciFi fans brought up on the US SciFi show factory.
I recommended it, but only if you don't want some US clone, are prepared to think, and will forgive a few silly faults and production shortcuts.
I loved it.
Why engrossed, then? Mainly because it's a good drama, whichever label you want to box it in with. Phenomenal camerawork. Tense acting. Intriguing issues to deal with. Smart twists. And I like the rough container-recycling of the set.
There are some completely unbelievable parts of the set, like plastic chairs etc. But I do not mind. After all, it's the relationship between people that is at the core. How do we build a society? How do we define "civilized structures"? Where's the balance between so called democratic participation and autocratic despotism? How do we rationalize our decisions? What makes us, yes, human?
I've now seen 4 out of 8 episodes. I do look forward to the coming 4... and ceratinly hope for a series 2!
