Thanks to shows like The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men, AMC has become a household name. This, apparently, has seemingly freed them up to take some risks as far as new programming goes, hence Intro the Badlands.
I haven’t been paying as close attention to this show as I have things like Better Call Saul and Halt and Catch Fire (which is insanely good, and you should definitely check it out), but this seems up my alley. It’s got a very Tarantino vibe to it, and it reminds me of a live action interpretation of a video game or an anime.
If AMC places this rights as far as time slot and day of airing, I think it could show some promise, especially considering that the public opinion of fantastical shows like this has changed for the better with things like TWD and Game of Thrones.
