    The Outsiders - new show WGN

    A new show based in present day Kentucky - Crocket County.
    A small town is near a mountain where the Farrel clan lives.
    The clan lives off the grid separate, most don't read, they only venture to town to raid and get what can't grow/make on their own.
    The big coal company has bought the mountain for it's coal and seeks the help of the small town police in getting the clan off the mountain. There's no paved roads, trails are blocked, and the clan travels by ATV.
    Watched the pilot tonight, it is interesting and has some good actors, I will keep watching.

    The previews looked interesting but I totally forgot about it's premiere night. I noticed it has Opie from Sons of Anarchy in it. I need to remember to check it out.

    I recorded the pilot. I'll give it a watch.

    Who wrote/created it?

    I'm intrigued, but unfortunately it plays across from Marvel's Agent Carter, which I'm totally hooked on.

    My only concern is I'm an IMDB addict. After looking at the show on there... It looks like the two most popular characters are only listed in 7 of the 14 episodes.

    I'm really hoping their names weren't used to bate people and get them interested just to take them out of the show after half of a season.

    How could they be the "most popular characters" when the show just made its premiere last night? Shouldn't folks have an opportunity to see more than one episode before they determine who they like?

    Ok my bad Jim. Most notably popular actors portraying a character in said show.

    Props to WGN for securing real actors for a TV show. That is awesome.

    Cable is paid for at my apartment, so it's not an option without my rent going up.
