Lost In Translation...


Hot on the heels of the news that Outcasts is being shunted to a late night, Sunday slot for the remainder of its run, we get one of the strongest, but also most frustrating, of episodes.

On one hand the show has fallen into a cheesy 'freak-of-the-week' pattern, starting with Mitchell Hoban, then the ACs, the whiteout, then Elijah and now Pak, yet on the other it's still capable of pulling off some genuine surprises.

While still paying homage to its Battlestar Galactica roots, with this episode we began to realise that Outcasts also has Lost-style aspirations, with the arrival at Forthaven of the John Locke-ish figure of Pak (Gary Lewis), the first human to set foot on Carpathia and long-thought dead.

He turns up at the town's one bar (really, one bar for the whole community?) and hangs around just long enough to scatter a sack full of diamonds about the place, get in a fight with the military expeditionaries, and then run off with Cass and Fleur in pursuit.

It's never exactly made clear why they follow him out into the wilderness - as their jurisdiction is Forthaven itself and outside the perimeter is supposed to be the responsibility of the expeditionaries - but Pak leads them on with Lockesque claims that "you don't know the planet", "I'll show you the bodies" and "the planet doesn't want you".

Stella and Jack eventually set out in pursuit of the security officers and, the possibly psychopathic, Pak, and end up running into the ACs and a swarm of poisonous horseflys.

However, Stella is just an interested in investigating the possibility of earlier human habitation on the planet as she is in rescuing her officers. For a moment, on the beach towards the end, I thought we were heading into Planet Of The Apes territory and half expected her to stumble across the half-buried remains of the Statue Of Liberty!

The main sub-plot this week focused on the continued the rise of Julius Berger, as his congregation increased and he took advantage of the wave of greed that swept the town, following Pak's diamond haul, to undermine President Tate a bit more.

It's never really explained why anyone would care about the diamonds - except that they're sparkly - because they have no monetary value on Carpathia. I think this was an attempt to show how mankind's 'wicked' impulses will endure even in the "new world".

Other mysteries that this story brought up included the (first?) mention of vast areas of radiation (The Closed Zone), which I guess might explain why the settlers haven't explored much of the planet, and the revelation that Carpathia has at least one ocean (Pak lives on its coast) - although in 10 years people have been on the planet no-one seems to have thought of giving the ocean a name (surely that's one of the first things explorers in a 'new world' do? Leave their mark by naming places after themselves?).

Although Pak - and his 'imaginary' dog (almost certainly a corollary of President Tate's "ghost children") - was a fantastic, character-driven, piece of atmosphere-building, it was the episode's left-field, revelatory, cliffhanger that was the true 'what the frak?' kicker.

To say "this changes everything" is a slight understatement and I continue to wonder how, with just three episodes now remaining (a second series is looking very unlikely), everything is going to get wrapped up.

  1. Yeah, it was a very choppy episode. Why do people care about diamonds? Why is the ocean considered to be almost a myth when there doesn't seem to be any real difficulty in getting there? Why is the radiation only mentioned now? Why are we calling the ACs "mutants" now?

    With each episode these are looking less like deliberate enigmas and more like stuff being made up as they go along.

    Even the ending, which was indeed a shock, is only such because it seems to be completely random, rather than a result of careful plotting.

    We shall see. I gave up on Lost very early on as I refused to sit through years of this kind of leg-pulling, but since Outcasts is a finite series -- and the performances are better here -- I'll stick it through to the end. I'm not confident, however.

  2. Thanks, Kelvin, all goods points that I agree with you totally on.

    I took the "mutants" comment as a simply a racial slur, not a genuine indication that they were mutants (as we understand the term).

  3. I hadn't thought of that. I suppose the references to radiation zones put me in a Gamma World frame of mind, so I assumed the term was meant literally!

  4. I suppose they are sort of mutants - they were genetically altered to be able to better survive on Carpathia. Just not radioactive mutants!

    Outcast gradually gets better, whilst the writing still contains silly little things that make no sense. At least it's not as grim as the first episodes any more. And after 10 years it seems like the folk of Forthaven (all two dozen of them!) are finally exploring and investigating the world beyond their flimsy town walls. Woohoo!

    Still, has it really taken them this long to ask what happened to all the animals and creatures other than small birds and insects?

    Y'know I half expected that cliffhanger at the end to be Berger contacting some people outside the virtual-reality simulation that everyone on "Carpathia" is in to give them an update. But it's just another ship with visions of taking over Forthaven. Assuming they can get through the dangerous atmospheric landing, of course.

  5. I guess we're just going to have to stick it out for the next three weeks to see if we get the decent pay-off that will make our investment of time worthwhile!

    The trailer for this weekend's episode appeared to show a lot of dynamic action... which would mark a change of pace.
