7. The Amazing Cast

The Amazing Cast
Not only is Jessica Green (Talon), gorgeous beyond belief, she also has the charisma to carry this show all on her own. Not that she has to with the equally enchanting Imogen Waterhouse (Gwynn) and the adorably charming Jake Stormoen (Garret Spears) to back her up.

8. The Balance of Comedy and Action

The Balance of Comedy and Action
Talon may kill at least one baddie each episode but that doesn't stop her from throwing a razor-sharp quip immediately afterward, and I love it! The problem with so many fantasy/dystopian shows is that they go dark and then darker, and then still darker without taking a moment to breathe.

9. Original Plot Premise

Original Plot Premise
Ok, so it isn't completely original in the sense that it does follow a very specific Fantasy/Sci-Fi formula. But it is definitely refreshing to be able to watch a show that isn't based on a book, or a graphic novel, or remade from a show that came out in the 90s.

10. Doesn't Take Itself Too Seriously

Doesn't Take Itself Too Seriously
I have seen a lot of complaints on the internet about the "cheap" set up of the show, and I just want to put it out there: Not every show is going to have a 10k budget. The Outpost was shot in Utah, and the natural settings are gorgeous. No, the castle where most of the drama takes place isn't exactly Winterfell. But whatever happened to suspending disbelief in the name of art?

11. The Dialogue

The Dialogue
I mentioned before that the Outpost is funny, but I don't know if I emphasized just how funny it is. Janzo, the barman is probably the source of most of the witty exchanges, but Talon and Gwynn definitely get in some zingers of their own.

12. It Passes The Bechdel Test

It Passes The Bechdel Test
A feat that I'm not even sure Supernatural has achieved yet! All the more refreshing, I'm not sure that Gwynn and Talon have even had a conversation about Garrett just yet. These women have more important things to discuss than the men in their lives, and I love it!

Cheryl: Ummm, did you have a lobotomy for breakfast? You’re wearing my signature color!

Cheryl: Not at Riverdale High. Here, I invented red. I am red.
[Cheryl snaps her fingers and two girls stand behind her]
Cheryl: Sorry, but this school is not big enough for the both of us, faux-pink lady. And I was here first. Go to Centerville High or Westerberg, I don’t care. But you have until first bell Monday to clear every trace of yourself out of these halls. Copy?
[Cheryl flips her hair in Toni’s face and walks away]

Archie: Ronnie, when I first met you … you were it for me. Everything I could ever wanted. I saw our whole future.
Veronica: Because we’re endgame, Archie.
