Amazon Prime Video review: Outer Range

Outer Range is on Amazon Prime Video. It's a mix of Yellowstone and X-Files with a just a dash of Jumanji. It's like the state of Wyoming said, "We see you, Yellowstone, and raise you a teleporting hole in the ground…." Josh Brolin is the main character and does a great job as a tough as nails, no-nonsense rancher trying to hold on to his land and his family.

The twist is there's a mysterious hole on his property that can teleport people and things to other times in the past or future…you never know when it will take you. They really throw out the whole "butterfly effect" deal in that characters going back in time don't seem to effect the future at all, and some characters interact with themselves in different generations. Also, whatever this hole's dirt is made from causes serious hallucinogenic reaction that people believe is a vision of their future.

I liked the whole thing, but it's one of those shows where the mystery is not fully explained. After the first two seasons you still don't know what's going on or why. Hopefully this won't be one of those shows like Squidgame or Stranger Things where subsequent seasons take years to make….(seriously, where is ST season 5, or Squidgame season 2???), or one where they just decide to end it without an ending.

    Tried it a while back…didn't have the patience to stick it out. Never knew what was really happening.

    I liked it. Just finished season 2 last night. Hopefully there will be a season 3 at least to explain everything before they shut it down.
