“The wars were so long ago nobody even remembers. Darkness and fear ruled until the time of the barons, seven men and women who forged order out of chaos. People flocked to them for protection. That protection became servitude. They banished guns and trained armies of lethal fighters they called Clippers. This world is built on blood. Nobody is innocent here. Welcome to the Badlands.”

Sunny (Daniel Wu), Head Clipper of the Badlands’ most powerful baron, rescues a boy from Nomades. The boy M.K. (Aramis Knight) turns out to have mysterious powers. While trying to unravel the secret behind M.K.'s dark gift and the connection between the two, a new baron, the Widow (Emily Beecham), provokes a war between the rivalling lands.

Yay or nay?

If you have any problems with seeing blood or breaking bones or severed limbs flying round and about, Into the Badlands is definitely not for you. For all those who couldn’t care less, prepare for a deeply-engaging, dark, gritty, martial arts-packed, post-apocalyptic action adventure series. A modern tribute to classic Samurai films. 

PS: A second season is scheduled for 2017

PPS: The intro was composed by no other than Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda
