Progressively Better
26 January 2016 | by wolftopicsSee all my reviews

This show has gotten a lot of negative comments so far, and I would just like to say that it deserves far better praise than what it has received. It is not completely without flaws, but such a television show does not exist. There are multiple reasons why this show excels above and beyond standard TV expectations, but the main purpose of this review is to point out how incredible Episode 5 was. "Reaper" is by far the most satisfyingly sinister episode yet, which is saying a lot in regards to its predecessor. It showcases all of the characters exactly how they should be and does a fantastic job of setting the tone for the future of the series. If you haven't jumped on this show yet, don't wait another day. This episode proved that The Shannara Chronicles was a force to be reckoned with in the land of television, and what happens in it is satisfyingly painful.
