The show was filmed in South Africa, and is a Kudos Film and Television production for BBC Wales and BBC America, co-produced by Film Afrika/ApolloMovie Beteiligungs.
  • BBC ONE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY OF OUTCASTS, SHOOTING IT IN SOUTH AFRICA AND CASTING BIG NAMES LIKE ERIC MABIUS AND JAMIE BAMBER, BUT IT DIDN'T PAY OFF. THE SHOW LOST MILLIONS OF VIEWERS IN THE FIRST WEEK, BUT SHOULD THEY HAVE STUCK WITH IT?

    Should You Give Outcasts a Second Chance?

    After a slow start, BBC One's Outcasts is starting to improve. TV.com reviews its progress to see if it's worth tuning in again.

    • Excellent show!

      9.5
      I hope there is more to come--this show is fantastic and deals wonderfully with its attention to what the reality of such a scenario would be like. I particularly enjoyed the life on the other planet as well, being much different than one might expect. This deserves a season 2, 3, 4, and 5.
    • Great Show!

      It seems to me that anyone that doesn't understand what the director has done here, is not in touch with their own humanity. This is by far the best show that involves the relocation of human beings to another planet ever. No flashy spaceships like star trek, but just enough technology to find another planet and how life might be starting from scratch with limited resources. The idea of what we think is fact or fiction on earth may not be the same way on another planet is an eye opener to how narrow minded we as a species really are. The actors did a great job given the resources at hand, the writers were brilliant, given a bigger budget i wonder how great this show could really be, i for one would love to see another season. The plot is set so that season 2 would take off, five stars to anyone involved in the making of this series. Thanks for the great show and hope to see another.moreless

      1.0
      The men in this show have been drinking estrogen recycle for way too long. The script is babble usually about nothing. The sound track is obnoxious and noisy. The aforementioned sound track exaggerates the tripe drama that unfolds like watching Jello harden. I don't care about any of these characters. I don't care what their problems are. If I was this planet, I'd just scrape these guys off and start over.moreless
    • The more things change...

      9.0
      This show reminded me of some of the original Star Trek where Cpt Kirk had to give ailens reasons not to destroy the Enterprise. But, it is a story showing that no matter how technologically advanced we become, the human heart stays the same. I think Julius Berger is a role model for the American Republican party.
    • Good show

      8.0
      I think the show was a good take on what it might be like to colonize another planet. I have watched the first season and was expecting to see a second but I see they cancelled it. someone like Hulu or netflix needs to get all of these shows like this one Kings,Firefly, stargate universe etc to make more episodes they would do well. I think the problem with these shows are not enough advertising or promotion if they were released and promoted they would do wellmoreless
