This looks like it will be the next epic fantasy series on TV. I know what I'm doing for the rest of the day...
So after watching the first two episodes here are some initial thoughts. The series is visually stunning. I love how they created something where almost every scene blows you away with how beautiful and detailed the world is. From the start it's apparent that this is a post-technological world where magic has replaced the technological relics of old. If
It's a bit too early to comment on the characters since so many of them are introduced in such a short span of time. That being said, I already have a few firm favourites. It's refreshing to see some truly strong female leads who can go toe-to-toe with any of their male counterparts.
The Shannara Chronicles is every bit of fantasy that you don't really get to see in something like Game of Thrones. It's filled to the brim with magic, epic quests and newfound heroes called to stand and fight against a rising tide of evil.
This is definitely a series you want to watch!
