A dark horse pick for number 22!
Into the Badlands (Thurs, Nov 15) AMC
What is it: This new series will feature the story of a warrior and a young boy as they travel through a dangerous feudal landscape seeking enlightenment. This “genre-bending martial arts series” is loosely based on the classic Chinese tale Journey to the West.
Why you should watch: AMC has had an excellent track record over the past few years of creating original, quality programming. This series sounds unlike anything else on television right now and if there’s anybody who’s able to do new and different well, it’s AMC. I mean, come on. You’re at least curious what the heck this is gonna be like, right?
