    Into the Badlands, Thoughts?

    I really enjoyed the finale overall. It's the first season finale I've watched in a while that actually felt like a true finale, with all of the plotlines coming to some kind of conclusion, while still laying the groundwork for the next season. My only complaint might be that they tried to do a little too much with the last fifteen minutes or so, in the sense that Sunny being captured felt rushed, and the actual outcome of the big skirmish is unclear in a way that feels less intentional and more like they ran out of time. Everything else was good though, and I've really liked this first season. I will definitely be tuning in next year.

    Into the Badlands, Thoughts?

    I agree with what seems to be the consensus. As long as you can turn your brain down a bit the show is very entertaining. The visuals alone are amazing, the story itself is interesting enough that I'm not bored during non-fight scenes, and the fights themselves are choreographed brilliantly. I also really like that the show knows what it is, i.e. it knows that people are watching it for the fights, and so therefore the episodes are explicitly structured so that there are a couple really good fights in each one, all of which come organically out of the plot and don't feel forced. This was made abundantly clear the last few weeks when new episodes of this aired right after The Walking Dead, which has been struggling more than ever this season with trying to figure out exactly what kind of show it is. Seeing a genre show done mostly right immediately following the confused mess that is the current Walking Dead only made me appreciate the approach they're taking with Badlands more. And Marton Csokas is amazing. It's one of the most over-the-top performances I've seen in a while, but it just works in the context of the show. I suspect it's going to be a one-season role, but I'm enjoying the hell out of it while it lasts.

    Introductions

    Hello. I've been lurking around for a little while, finally decided to jump in and start participating in the discussion. It's been a while since I've been a part of a forum, so I'm looking forward to getting back into it. I'm a fan of the books and the show, and many other things besides, which will hopefully become apparent in the conversations ahead. So yeah, excited to start talking to everyone.
