Such a shame that this great series is ending in 2019 after only 3 seasons
Just when you think it is getting much more interesting!
I always hoped this show would get to be around for at least 5 seasons but hey….I am just a fan of it and not the executive producer, right?
Anyways, enough of the sadness tears, let’s roll back
Remember Sunny, The Master, Henry, Veil, Pilgrim, The Witch, Bajie, Nix, Baron Chau, Quinn, Azraa, The Widow, the cogs, the Badlands, the Black Lotus, the sleepers, Emke, Tilda, Lydia, Nathaniel Barnes and so many more?
Each of those names represents something….both on-screen and in our lives, to say but the least
For example, Pilgrim represents impunity and power, Sunny represents fighting for what is truly yours both good and bad, The Widow represents resistance and perseverance amidst all, Lydia represents clarity of mind and reasoning, Bhaarji represents close ties and survival, Henry represents new and fresh beginnings, Emke and Nix represent youth and life in the present, the cogs represent a sense of security and property, the Badlands represent the turmoil and struggle over the vast lands, the Black Lotus represent protection of the world as it is, Azraa represents the promised land that so many generations have always looked for, Nathaniel Barnes represents determination and life after tomorrow …
Set in a world that has been reborn after having lost the one that existed before,
Power and control is what drives majority of the livelihoods here in the Badlands
Territories are divided amongst respective barons and viceroys
With the one that proves to be the strongest of them all taking up as much of the lion’s share as possible
Cogs for labour and transformation
Clippers for security
Land for food, cash crop and territory
Armies for protection and invasion of other territories
Witches, wizards and religion for seeing into the future
Be ready to see some wars and battles, lots of blood, pain and suffering, fighting and compromising, refugee camps, shelters, knives, swords, guns, bullets, slingers, arrows, fire, fortresses, cars, motorbikes, sticks and most of all, everyone as a warrior!
I have grown to love this show, AMC and I seriously hope you do enjoy it, too!
