The Shannara Chronicles (S02E08) “Amberle” Review

The previous episode ended with the huge cliffhanger of the Warlock Lord rising with the face of Allanon, so 2×08, “Amberle” had to compete with that. But the title itself made everyone more than eager to tune in, in the desperate hope for seeing our beloved Princess for more than a couple of seconds –…

The Shannara Chronicles (S02E07) “Warlock”

Shannara 2×07 fittingly titled “Warlock” starts right after the death of King Ander (RIP, I will never not cry about this). Tamlin’s guards buy our heroes enough time for the final goodbyes. For the first – and last – time we see a motherly side of Tamlin that has been hidden until now. The Queen…

The Shannara Chronicles (S02E06) “Crimson”

Episode 2×06, airing back to back with 2×05, obviously picks up right where the previous started. This season of Shannara is like binging a Netflix show, where the episodes flow into one another almost like an extremely long movie (and the quality of the content is great). This episode, titled “Crimson” tried – and I would…

The Shannara Chronicles (S02E05) “Paranor”

Shannara’s 2×05, “Paranor” keep the fast pace of the previous episodes. Mere hours have passed since the events of the previous episode. Eretria and Jax part ways. They must really have bonded during this trip off screen because she tries to persuade him to stay, and he concedes that, when he finishes doing what he…

The Shannara Chronicles (S02E04) “Dweller”

The red thread that loosely runs through episode 4, “Dweller”, are the traumatic experiences that each of the main characters experienced at some point in their lives. Tonight we uncovered some parts of Wil, Mareth, and Gareth Jax. The episode opens with Bandon appearing in Tamlin’s palace, unseen by her guards, to remind her of…

The Shannara Chronicles (S02E03) “Graymark”

Most of the action in this episode takes place in “Graymark”, the old seat of the Warlock Lord, hence the title. Allanon is brought to the fortress by Riga’s men to meet the General. He wants the Codex so that he can destroy all magic once and for all. The druid tries to convince Riga…

The Shannara Chronicles (S02E02) “Wraith”

The second episode of the sophomore season of Shannara opens up with the characters almost exactly where we had left them in the premiere: Wil and Mareth are on the run from the Warlock Lord’s minions, Eretria and Lyria have been captured, Ander is still not back to Arborlon. Wil is shocked about Mareth’s revelation…

The Shannara Chronicles (S02E01) “Druid”

The Shannara Chronicles has finally come back to our screens after the long absence of a year and a half. In the meantime, the show has moved from MTV to Spike and gained many additions to the cast: Vanessa Morgan as Lyria, Malese Jow as Mareth, and Desmond Chiam as General Riga only in the…

The Shannara Chronicles (S01E09): “Safehold”

Review: With only one more episode to go, The Shannara Chronicles has been delivering such EPIC episodes each week coupled with brilliant acting. I cant describe how excited I am for the season finale, and to see what the whole team behind the brilliance of Shannara has got in store for us next season. It…

The Shannara Chronicles (S01E08): “Utopia”

Review: So far the adaption of the Shannara Chronicles has been phenomenal,  Al Gough, Miles Millar, have done a brilliant job on bringing Terry Brooks story to screen. Wow its astonishing to me how fast this show has gone by already 8 episodes in and 2 left. A season 2 is not even a question,  We pick up right were we left…

The Shannara Chronicles (S01E07): “Breakline”

They cut off elf ears and sell them to gnomes who believe that they have special healing powers. After escaping from Pykon, Wil is separated from Eretria and Amberle, he goes off searching…
