The Shannara Chronicles: S1 E1-2

‘The Shannara Chronicles’ is a new TV series based on the best-selling fantasy novels by Terry Brooks. Set thousands of years after the destruction of our civilization, the story follows an Elven Princess, Amberle, a half-human half-elf, Wil, and a human, Eretria, as they embark on a quest to stop a Demon army from destroying the Four Lands.

I’ve been hearing the whispers of this show on the blogosphere and on Booktube and finally looked it up.

Guys, this show is GOOD!

Are you thinking, “But wait, MTV is cringeworthy?”. I did too.  Just trust me on this and watch the first 5 minutes.  You won’t regret it.  All the skeptical Sally’s became believers and ended up watching the 2 hour long (!!) episode.

The characters are diverse and beautiful.  There’s also a great mix of fantasy, magic, and mystical beings (ahem, elves).

The special effects are pretty impressive for the homeland of Jersey Shore

Also, there’s a lot of actions.  You see many different things going on at once.  It reminds me a little of Game of Thrones.

I definitely recommend you checking it out!  Let me know if you’ve read the books, I’m not sure if I should also read them. :]
