In his review of the premiere, Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter considered the series looked "cheap" for a broadcast network series, adding that, "Way too much of the pilot for The Outpost is people talking around the things the budget can't show." CBR's Josh Bell similarly criticized the series' production values, but also its use of fantasy "clichés and contrivances" in the pilot episode. Several critics compared The Outpost unfavorably to other fantasy series, including Game of ThronesLord of the Rings, and Xena: Warrior Princess.
