Outsiders: Season One (2016/Sony DVD Set)

Picture: B Sound: C+ Extras: B Episodes: A-

The Farrell Clan, a clan of mountain men, hillbillies, they went unchallenged for years and lived on Shay Mountain for 200 years, cut off from the world, they obey no man, no laws, except their own. Now, a greedy coal company wants the coal in their mountain and the Farrells off it. However, an even a greater danger is against the Farrells ....themselves. As the outside world begins invading Shay mountains, the Farrells themselves will do anything to protect their way of life in Season One of Outsiders (2016).

For the first time in a while, time causes The Farrells to be challenged when a new Bren'in is picked. Big Foster has been waiting for years to succeed his mother, but when Asa Farrell returns he brings warning and danger of the outside world, and the Farrells are not ready or prepared. Also, Big Foster is scared of a prophecy that foretold an outside Farrell will return to be the next Bren'in. Asa has lived 10 year outside learned more than other give him credit for, while Big Foster knows only how to bully and scare others, their problem is sooner or later someone will fight back ...and it ain't gonna be nice or anything pretty about it.

If you like Sons of Anarchy, then you will love this series; a story of brutality, violence and people who believe they are above the law. People fear the law, but that is the real lie, the law should fear the people. We'll see how the run of the show goes. David Morse, Joe Anderson and Ryan Hurst lead the cast.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image looks really good for this format, though expect style choices that you may or may not like. The lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 sound on the episodes is a mixed bag that is uneven, but might resolve better in a lossless presentation. Extras include deleted scenes, first season featurette, and Meet the Farrells featurette.
