    Just knocked out all three seasons of this.
    Stars Jason Mamoa (Kal Drogo from Game of Thrones and the new Aquaman)
    It's like an Outlander/Jamestown/Last of Mohicans fusion :D set in Canada during the pioneering days of The Hudson Bay Company.
    In Season 3 half of major players actually return to Scotland to play out one part of story while other segment continues in Canada.
    There are a lot of 'Scots' characters in the story - some of the accents are horrendously cringeworthy by non-Scots playing Scots & even one of the genuine Scottish guys (Jamie Sives who plays McTaggart) overplays it a bit (although quite funny with it have to say - very similar to Stephen Walters' Angus Mhor in Outlander)
    But if you can get over that, it's a decent watch - lots of Indian-style fighting (bows/arrows and axes)
    S3 maybe tailed off a bit vs first two seasons but all in all still good.

    I started watching the first series a whole ago but i could not get into it,a poor man's Outlander maybe? Guess i watched 5 episodes and that was enough.

    Oh it's absolutely nowhere near the quality of Outlander.

    It started quite slow and I almost lost interest. Quite enjoying it now. 6 episodes a season is a bit keek too
