Storyline

Regent Sunny, a highly-skilled fighter and the deadliest "Head Clipper" for Baron Quinn battles the Nomads to rescue a mysterious boy named M.K. who harbors a dark secret about his past. But when he brings him back to The Fort to train as a "Colt", a Clipper-in-training, things quickly get out of hand with another trainee. When first blood is drawn, M.K. loses control of himself as if something takes over his body, making the boy valuable to an opposing baron, The Widow. Meanwhile, Sunny discovers M.K.'s pendant has the same image as the one on his childhood compass of a place called Azra, the boy's home. In order to seek out the truth about his own past, Sunny wants to know more of this city beyond the Badlands, and must find a way out, especially now that his lover Veil is illegally pregnant with his child.

Trivia

When Baron Quinn rallies his cogs before a dangerous mission in season 2; he cited parts of "Fire and Ice." This poem was written by Robert Frost & first published in Harper's magazine 1920, then in 1923 in his Pulitzer Prize winning book, "New Hampshire." The poem likens fire with passion and ice with hate and has been much anthologised since. End of days is also often believed by many religions over history to come in Fire and Ice. For example "Ragnorak" in Norsk history/mythology. See more »

Best Kung Fu on TV, ever.
5 December 2015 | by markbeckfordSee all my reviews

If you loved Bruce Lee, the old TV series Kung Fu, The Matrix, Kill Bill, Road Warrior, The Raid: Redemption and untold others I'm probably forgetting, then you'll love the genre mashup that is "Into the Badlands." I thought the ads were boring and redundant during episodes of The Walking Dead, but after seeing the first two episodes, it's pure, epic TV. Oh, and best of all, given the times, they banned guns in this futuristic post-apocalyptic society so everybody is highly trained with knives and swords. Yeah, the story is a bit vague and simple, but with with an Asian in the lead role, cinema-level fight scenes, what's not to love?
