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.
