Looks interesting, I'll give it a few episodes at least because it's AMC. Seems like a mashup of genres.

New show starting on amc right after the walking dead on the 15th. Looks really interesting and if nothing else the fighting looks really well done.

Holy shit, this looks totally bad ass.
I'm waiting to hear reviews because to me this looks like it cannot possibly be good. TV can't pull this sort of stuff off without being cheesy as fuck.

As long as the combat is awesome I wouldn't care if the story was non-existent.

That dialogue seems trite and awful.

I liked it. Fighting scenes were impressive for a TV show and the story seems pretty interesting. Definitely my kind of show.

I was trying to catch the replay, and the AMC channel on my cable froze 10 minutes in. It's currently still frozen. It's only this channel so it fucking figures.

I was semi into it until near the end when they played the song which was already used some in The Walking Dead. It was like really, can you not find another song other than one used in the series right before it?
I also hate how they FORCED people to watch it to see the next weeks preview for TWD which showed nothing anyways. I would have watched regardless but stuff like that just pisses me off anymore.

It started off strong, but the problem with these type of TV series is they dump all their money into the pilots, and the pilot already looked pretty low budget.

I expect a lot of talking ,and very spread out action scenes over the course of the series when the action is the only thing that is interesting.

Hope I'm wrong tho

Yeah man, AMC got me several times with that scam. Blow me away with the pilot then put me to sleep with the rest of the season. The worst is still hanging tough through all the boredom then the finale gives you serious blue balls because AMC really really wants you to come back for season 2. Except you were the only putz to watch the the whole boring season and now the show is cancelled!

I'm afraid of there being too much boring diaologue as well. All they need to do is make the story somewhat interesting and cohesive, keep the quality of the fighting scenes up and it will work. It feels like a live action anime of sorts.

I like the main baron dude, though it's obvious what will happen I think.

Fight choreography was very reminiscent of Brotherhood of the Wolf so that was a plus, story was ok though it seemed pretty standard but it all looked good. Had no clue it was produced by the Smallville guys, which I think are doing Elfstones of Shannara as well. I'll keep watching, kept me interested to at least DVR it.

Looking forward to the next episode.
