Last night I watched the premiere episode of Terry Brook’s Shannara, airing on MTV and I must say, Wow! It’s like a sparkling jewel. The special effects are great, the actors are well-chosen and lovely to look at, the story is good (though I don’t know how closely it parallels the book). I see this morning that 49.8% of viewers on TV Line rated it at “awesome” and another 28.43% at “very good”. That’s a pretty solid positive in my book.
Who would have thought MTV could come up with something like this? We can only hope they continue to maintain the quality that is evident in the premiere episode. It looks expensive.
All I can say is “I’m in”. I hope I can continue to say that in four or five years.
