It's so much fun to watch and the actors portray their characters so well. The cast has so much chemistry with each other and the world building is phenomenal. I have been watching this with my mom, and both of us have never gotten confused before, which is hard to do for a fantasy series.
The way that the show has been going and taking the plot is so intriguing. The first couple episodes are so well done, which is weird for a first season. When you look at Vampire Diaries, another adaption based off a book series, their first season was so weak compared to their others. If that is the way Shannara Chronicles will be, then I can't wait for the second season. I can see this becoming one of my favorite TV shows if Shannara Chronicles continues to be this strong.
One of my favorite aspects of Shannara Chronicles is that it has a great balance between the romance and adventure plot lines. The love triangle in the adaption is so well done. It is refreshing to see a love triangle that is actually between two girls and a guy instead of the other way. Eretria and Amberle both represent different things to Will. While Eretria represents the forbidden and dangers of the world and is darkly intriguing, Amberle is the acceptance that Will has never gotten but has always wanted. Right now, I like Will with Amberle together more!
The Shannara Chronicles expands on its world with every episode. While they do this with the trials Will and the main cast faces, they also use the secondary characters very well. Bandon, a boy who can predict the future of people's deaths, is one of my favorite side characters. I'm excited to see how his story arc progresses.
As of right now, I am watching the seventh episode of the first season. I'm sad to think that the season is going to be wrapping up in the next three episodes. Wathcing Pykon truly shows the promise of the series. The Shannara Chronicles easily builds the tension and suspense throughout the episode and series as a whole. There are so many twists and turns that I never see coming. I can't wait to see how the series will end! Hopefully the series will be renewed for a second season!
What have you guys thought about the Shannara Chronicles? Have you been watching the series or are you planning on watching it later?
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
