This is a really good post-apocalyptic action drama. The
creators, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, also created the
smash hit "Smallville." This 6-part series is way more
original. In the future, feudal barons rule various
territories in "the badlands." The barons have their
own soldiers or hit men they call clippers. Clippers are
well-trained assassins with martial arts skills. Sunny
(Daniel Wu) is a clipper who works for the powerful baron
Quinn. Sunny finds a young man named M.K. (Aramis
Knight) who has a strange, dark power inside him. At first,
Sunny gets M.K. to become a future clipper for Quinn, but
then he helps him escape.
There are many interesting characters, such as Quinn's
wife and son, Sunny's girlfriend, and the other barons.
There are many fabulous martial arts fight scenes. The
characters are good and make it worth watching beyond the
action. It's a very cool show, like a good comic book come
to life. Visually it reminds me of "Buffy the Vampire
Slayer" at its best.
Check it out. It's only 6 episodes!
