I watched the first two episodes but was never able to get into it. I did like seeing former Xena/Hercules/LotR actor Marton Csokas getting a big gig on American TV though.

Was not aware of it but now that I have Amazon Prime (which I am sure I will regret) I guess I can check it out.

It looks cool, and it's been on my radar from the beginning. I haven't checked it out yet. If it's on Prime, I may give it a shot this weekend, as it's supposed to be raining most of
the time. :mad:

Well, I have been sick again throughout the month of June. Managed to binge-watch "Band of Brothers" this week. Forgot about "Into the Badlands". Will still give it a shot next.

I've never seen that, either. It keeps coming up in conversation with a buddy of mine, and he says I should check it out.

It's very very similar to that short-lived NBC series Evolution. Just with a conscious effort to replicate graphic novel-style visuals (bright colors for example) and Hong Kong-style martial arts.

Didn't they originally promote this as being based on an idea from Bruce Lee? Or am I getting confused with previous discussions about Kung Fu?

I assume the original Kung Fu, which Lee had pitched as a show he could star in. This series seems to be [URL="https://deadline.com/2015/07/into-the-badlands-tca-daniel-wu-1201488844"]the brainchild
of its creators[/URL], although they based some of the structure on an old Chinese novel called Journey to the West. They just set in a post-Apocalyptic USA,
presumably following the success of Walking Dead.

Ok, that sounds right. Still haven't watched Into the Badlands, though. :bg:
