The futuristic martial-arts saga is the most ordinary drama that AMC has ever picked up. As Mike Hale notes, “With The Walking Dead, AMC took comic-book material and elevated it, stretched its narrative and thematic limits, for better and for worse.

Into the Badlands is a different and more common beast — it’s an original drama conceived in comic-book terms, like most of the shows on channels like TNT or Syfy.” PLUS: Into the Badlands stumbles when it’s not fighting, and it doesn’t need anything other than its cool fight scenes.
