If you like your westerns heavy on bromance and thousand-yard stares, CBC’s Strange Empire
isn’t for you. If you’re keen on untold stories of how the West was won, however, saddle up and join the wagon train: This dark new series focuses on a band of outcasts (a native woman, a brothel madam and a lady doctor) who
struggle to bring civilization to a lawless border town. Oh, and did we mention all the men have disappeared?
