Into the Badlands #Netflix365

“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.” Opening narration for Into the Badlands.

An AMC show, Into the Badlands, is set in a feudal world where a great war happened and the resolution was to break the lands up into different sectors ruled by a warlord.

If you can think of a mash up elements of samurai, steampunk, dystopia, southern plantation you get Into the Badlands.  The program comes with a high production value where the stunts, costumes and costumes all work together to tell a decent story.

The action in  Badlands is equal to any movie of a similar production value and as good, or better, than anything on television (at least top 5).  I have enjoyed the show and look forward to the second season.
