Social Media | Strange Empire 1.4 Live-Tweet

I’ll be honest. Strange Empire is the hardest show for me to live-tweet this fall. The show was promoted by CBC as a female-oriented Western, which it is, yet the show is more about business establishment and corruption than anything else. I’m still not sure about Strange Empire’s pacing or dialogue.

Strange Empire doesn’t have Durham County’s sense of storytelling economy, which isn’t surprising when comparing a six-episode season to a thirteen-episode one. I like Laurie Finstad-Knizhnik, yet I wonder if Strange Empire’s ambition exceeds its reach. If viewers want a female version of Young Guns, this show isn’t it.
