A few weeks ago, it might have seemed like bad fortune that Into the Badland's second season was debuting mere days after Iron Fist hit Netflix. Geeks only have so much room for martial arts fantasy in their weekly diet, right? But given the uniformly negative reaction to Iron Fist, the timing might wind up working out in AMC's favor instead. If you're feeling jilted at Iron Fist's lukewarm display of fighting prowess, Into the Badlands is here to wash away the bad taste. (Source)Let me start by saying when Netflix added Into the Badlands to their collections, there was no alert, o email, no "New Episodes" label, no nothin'. And they smooth thought that people like Moi weren't gonna notice that. Or how when Irish Fist dropped, I got an alert and three emails in one day.
There are plenty reviews praising the return of Into the Badlands for various (obvious) reasons, so I'm going a few reasons why I'm so grateful for this show.
1) This is our hero.
|Daniel Wu as "Sunny"|
|Madelein Mantock as "Veil"|
|Aramis Knight as "MK"|
|Chipo Chung as "The Master"|
|Cung Le as one of the Abbotts|
6) This is the guy who composed the main theme.
|Mike Shinoda. Enough said.|
And there is no shortage of other reasons why I thank the gods for Into the Badlands.
