I don't get why people like this show: Momoa does nothing other than scowl and growl the entire show and the character just comes off as an asshole in general, none of the supporting characters are interesting or even likeable, and the show's writers seem to constantly forget what actually was in the scene they were just writing, [spoiler]like e.g. when a high-ranking officer with his cohorts go to arrest one of the traders, the officer and the trader tussle and the trader kills the officer and...none of the officer's troops steps in at this point. They actually just vanish into thin air at this point as if they had never even been there in the first place![/spoiler] The writers just completely forgot the troops were there! And this happens all the frickin' time, too, it's not just a one-off thing.

Amazing. Just amazing. The acting, the costumes and the story, everything fits together which makes the show even more amazing. Love Jason Momoa and this new show of his is definitely one of my favourites.

the acting was amazing but I just didn't enjoy the storyline

I had hoped this would be a good action adventure style show but it's more like a soap opera with all that scheming and backstabbing. Lots of stupid characters making stupid decisions. And the whole plot is so darn forseeable. It looks very good, though. The costumes, the sets, this had potential.

I'm so addicted to this series!!!

it's a very good show.

I watched 2 episodes so far but this show looks like writers took Black Sails script and changed pirates to trappers. (minor spoilers from Black Sails and Frontier but nothing that could spoil the fun) In both shows young, an inexperienced boy comes to the new world (different regions), meets the legendary outlaw and after some time gains his trust. The outlaws are grouped in companies/crews and rival with themselves, but there is greater enemy - Hudson Bay Company/The British Navy. On island/in fort there is tavern ruled by a courageous woman. Most important trapper/pirate is played by charismatic actor [spoiler]and has great problems with the government because of the woman. He also wants combine forces of all smaller companies/crews to beat the common enemy, but others don't see the need for it (besides the young boy, who is really smart).[/spoiler] Nevertheless, the show isn't bad and as far as I watched (for two episodes of both shows) I think that Frontier is slightly better. I'm little worried that the moment I don't see as many likable characters as in Black Sails, but maybe after few episodes (I watched 3 seasons of the pirate saga), I will find them more interesting.

(Two episodes in) I like it. It's not quite on the same level as other historic shows like Black Sails. But it is still very entertaining. Jason Momoa is great. Some of the accents are a bit weird/bad. Even I as a non native english speaker noticed it and I usually don't. But I can look over that. Story is interesting enough but nothing jaw dropping, same with the acting. Everyone is pretty good but nobody stands out as really great. The action and the sets and costumes are great tough but not quite as epic as Black Sails or Vikings tough (so far at least). All in all a good start for Discoverys first original scripted show.

For being a period drama, the first episode was really entertaining with history, bloodshed, and slight comedy. I'm really looking forward to watching the upcoming episodes. BTW, Jason Momoa (aka Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones) is in this too and it's already been renewed for a second season! Woohoo!!
