Netflix holds countless of amazing shows that entertains its users from Stranger Things to RiverDale that are very popular currently. Netflix also holds an amazing Netflix Original Show, Frontier.
Frontier directed by Brad Peyton, casts former Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa, as Declan Harp, a half-Irish-half-Indian outlaw who is wanted in England for causing a threat to the HBC. The show takes place in the late 18th century, where the fur trade to the ‘New World’ has just begun. The series is shown from many perspectives as everyone struggles to fight for wealth and power. The show follows young Irish stowaway Michael Smith as he makes a deal with Lord Benton of the England’s HBC to find Declan Harp’s location, as Lord Benton seems to have a deep obsession with him. But things take a turn when Michael Smith seems to be drawn to Declan Harp and follows him instead. The first season focuses mainly on Michael Smith and his hardships between England and the Indians in Fort James as “betrayal, riches, brutality, and the survival of fittest” takes place.

Frontier is an amazing show because it shows a strong female lead, which is not seen in many shows. Tavern owner, Grace Emberly, played by Zoe Boyle uses her tavern as a place to know everything that happens in Fort James. Whatever it is, she will be the first one to find out. She is also a good friend of Declan Harp and both of them seems to share a deep connection. In the series, it shows that she would do what it takes to try to help Declan Harp. TvMaze states, “It's indeed a man's world, but Scottish spitfire Grace Emberly is determined to carve out from it her own destiny. Smart, savvy, and quick-witted, Emberly is a force to be reckoned with, gives as good as she gets, and has the respect of her patrons.”
Netflix only has one season now but soon, a second season would be coming out on November 24 so be sure to check it out. You can learn more about it and watch the first season on this website: Netflix
I hope that after reading this article you would check this Netflix Original Series out because it is very interesting and very emotional. It is also about the struggles of the New World and England, which is similar to what the 8th graders are learning about in Core. I thought the show was amazing and kept watching without stopping. I stayed up till 2:00 in the morning just to finish it because that was how good it was. Though I was very angry because the series ended with a cliffhanger, I hope that you watch this show when you have time and know that it is not only on Netflix. You can find this show in many other websites online as well. Be sure to ask a parent or guardian for permission to watch this show since it is rated T-V MATURE for their foul language and gore. Hope this review made you interested in watching the show.
