Never forget that the Widow, a white woman with a lot of power, knowingly handed over Veil, a black woman who has been held hostage for like a year now, over to a man that wanted to rape her. Fuck the Widow and everything she stands for.
At least the other barons are upfront about their shitty dealings.
I'm sorry. I'm seeing you reblog Into the Badlands, what is this because it looks like I need it.
It’s an amazing tv show with a diverse cast and awesome fighting scenes.
It’s set in a post-apocalyptic future, where guns have been banned and everyone uses swords and blades. The Badlands are a huge territory ruled by seven barons and each of them has a territory, Cogs (servants working as farmers and house servants), and Clippers (a private army of bodyguards and assassins).
The premise is : Sunny (man of chinese descent) is the most skilled Clipper in the Badlands and works for the most powerful Baron. But he is in a secret relationship with a doctor, Veil (black woman), and she’s pregnant so they start thinking about running away together. In the meantime he meets a boy, M.K (half-white, half-south asian) who seems to possess a strange power. And there’s plenty of political machinations and awesome fights, and the characters are very compelling. There’s not many episodes, first season had 6 episodes, the second will have 10 episodes (it’s not done yet), and it has just been renewed for a 3rd season of 16 episodes.
The show is co-produced by Daniel Wu, who plays Sunny. The costumes and fighting techniques are heavily drawn from asian cultures, but since a lot of the characters are of asian descent it doesn’t have the “cultural appropriation with white savior trope” feel.
