AMC's Into The Badlands $Spoilers$
« on: September 03, 2016, 01:20:37 PM »
Anyone else watch this show?  It's kind of like if Mad Max, Kung-fu movies, and Game of Thrones had a genetically spliced baby and raised it in Louisiana on 1800's style magazines and it collected 1950's vehicles.

It's set in a post-apocalyptic world run by seven (IIRC) people calling themselves Barons.  Guns have been outlawed and each Baron operates an army of assassins called "Clippers".  The series focuses on Baron Quinn's top Clipper, Sunny.  Sunny happens upon a kid named M.K. who gains super-human abilities when cut and together they develop a plan to leave the Badlands before all out war breaks out.

Season 1 is being reaired on BBC America every Saturday (they're on episode 5 now).  Season 2 starts sometime next year IIRC.
