low budget movie, the story i s good but the actors are amateurs, just the druid did his part good
season 2 was supposed to get released in the beginning of the year, why isn't there anything yet?
Can someone please tell me why its been almost 4 months since s2 ep 1 and they still haven't made another episode
Watch it if you really enjoy fantasy stories, it's done pretty well with this stuff, but storyline sometimes doesn't take sense and some dialogues sometimes appear childish... But actually a nice show
i've slept the whole movie, but it seems nice. slee from arrow is in it,so it must be...lol.
Excellent Story-line, Well executed Scripting. Acting itself is kinda in between that of a short European film festival and one of ABC's daytime drama's, in that the acting was not bad but over exposed and drawn out. Capetian Kirk would have been proud. On the other hand the special effects was on middle grounds with me looked like a mixture of 300 and Lord of the rings, Artistic yet stable not bouncing you into a bloodflurred daze. i Personally cannot wait for a continuation of this for the st
It's that bad. It's actually pretty sucky! Some of the acting, in the beginning, looked a little forced and it turns out after a few episodes it still was. :( Anyway, if you like fae-related sort of things, you'll definitely hate it.

I accidently gave it ten stars. Now I'm going to have to write this so I can give it one star and even it out. There's no way I'm giving this ten stars. I hate this show that much.
Although i like the storyline and i think it would have made fantastic series, this series doesnt. The CGI is amazing, the costumes are bad (they are too glossy and new , not worn and rough as they should be+ how do they get factory grade clothing in medieval times ??). Now to the acting ... still looking. The acting is non exsistant its like they picked the worst actors on purpose. The scripting is acceptable but not realized by the actors. In conclusion this is a bad series, but if you have no
All costumes are brand new, not given a battle worn look, cast is too young. Acting is shit, cast is too young, boring factor 6/10, not a fan, prefer the book.
This is one damn boring show. I started watching it and turned it off halfway into the first episode. Day later i thought i give it another try and actually watched the first two episodes. Started out pretty good and interesting but then it just took a nose dive really hard. It gets boring as hell, really just a bad copy of LOTR and the story makes no sense either. You can skip through the episodes without missing anything. You can go from episode 3 directly to 10 and not miss a damn thing. Not
Hey lunafang That's the great thing about comment sections. You get to write good and bad reviews and opinions. It's called free speech. If you really had faith and loved your show it wouldn't matter what people said. Like the fact that Shannara Chronicles suck.
Too many asshats in this comment section who think they are Tv and film critics. If you don't like the show stop watching it and instead of leaving bad reviews just get on with your life or find another show to watch instead of ruining it for the people who actually enjoyed it? Just a thought.
The amazing cgi does not make up for the dull characters and story. I watched the entire season hoping to see the "amazing" world that I'd heard so much about from people who read the books, but the show fell flat. Disappointing. I will not be watching the second season. 1/10
Some of the worst acting you'll see in a show that is trying to be "serious". Absolutely awful
This is easily one of my favorite new TV series, I get excited every time aa new episode is released. So it is definitely good enough to keep me engaged with the storyline.
Characters are dull and trivial, the ploto is not interesting at all. It really bores me. Not for me.
Just registered and cannot watch the shannara chronicles on this website! Rubbish am unregistering as bad website!
Amazing series <3 Just finished watching the last episode and I loved it. That ending though... It kind of killed me ;'(
Great show just a shame so many huge developments have been left out that were in the books
you know who should be reviewed, is people leaving reviews when comparing books to film adaptations. you go through life comapring apples to oranges and you are ALWAYS going to be disappointed. Get an imagination! I read and reread the books growing up and I am fine with the fact that the series has not been a straight adaptation from the original books. This is how it goes. They are two totally different ways of sharing a story. They are always going to differ. I am enjoying the series so far a
For a guy who hasn't read the books I have to say this was a pleasant show. Good acting, good CGI and good story. But I wish it was some background story about what happen to the "human" world.
The webmaster at Terry Brook’s website closed the forums and closed comments on news items because of all the neg comments. The writing is on the wall. This show is getting cancelled. I'm very happy about that.
Just Finished the show and i say it was awesome 10/10 hope they make a season 2 though looking forward to it if they do
Great Show. Better than most funny how some people just give this show a poor review because they don't like 1 minor thing about it haha those people r stupid n if ur reading this knowing your one of those people then i laugh at you for no reason just cause i can (:
This is awful. Any yet, because I was a fan of the books I watch it. Every episode makes me cringe and yet I continue.
Come on MTV. You could do better than this. It's just a cheap imitation of my All-Time Fave Lord Of The Rings series. The problem is,it doesn't even come close. I understand that this is just a tv show & cannot have a big production like Mr.Jackson's Masterpiece but if you're going to copy, at least come close. The story is weak. The fighting is even weaker. The acting? Hmmm....Lol! One thing I give props though. The costumes. I'm sorry but, it's just the way it is. I gave it a try & watched til
looks like 95.6% of their budget was put into episode 1. No story later on and acting just gets worse.
Just finished watching the first episode... and OMG I freakin' loved it!!!!!!!
there are some people- usually the same people - who put negatives reviews on nearly all shows - I would like to see them make a series of their own and watch others critise it. this eries has improved every episode and it has not kept strictly to the book but it is going the right way and there are so many books to explain this series and more after - so they have great scope for other series
People are going to have to wait longer than a year for the second season. The way this shows numbers are going it's never going to have a second season.
Awesome! I hope the 2nd season comes soon. 10 ep for the 1st season it's not enough... if I have to wait 1 year for the 2nd season I think I will stop following it..
Well I really thought I'd like this show cause i love this kind of shows but for some reason I don't like it I tried to watch at least 4 episode but in de middle of the fourth episode I quit.
Awesome series, enjoying it very much as it's nothing like the books, its actually fun and enjoyable. This is just like legend of the seeker and similar series and completely unlike game of thrones or other long boring series that Id rather read the books for, The scenery is awesome and the cast is funny, granted the story has been changed a lot from the book it feels like a fresh new story which is what I enjoy from book to series adaptations since why would I want to read the book again anyway
Knowing what happening in the book makes me so nervous for whats coming up. Cant wait to see Amberle and Will together. Really hope they do another season. I JUST LOVE THE SHOW SO MUCH!!!!!1
Demo numbers and viewership is way down from last week. It keeps on dropping. Never going to see a second season. They're lucky they already filmed all the episodes or they might have not let it finish the season.
were written in the manner that adults would appreciate and they have reduced them to the I.Q level that only pre-adolescent girls would enjoy. Sorry but I don’t understand how Banks could disrespect his massive audience/followers (he has sold a mega amount of books) in such away, not unless he was total naive about what they intended the outcome would be, this should have been on a par with Game of Thrones.
This is a quote from another site from the user pushbuttons. It sums it up nicely. "Well the screen writers have jettisoned most of the book so far, to its total detriment I may add, but I cannot imagine Brooks has sold out to the extent that he allows a completely different ending, but you never know. Anyway its utter garbage what has been delivered so far; basically it’s as if they have visually skimmed over his series of books and compressed them all on too one page; not only that these books
I started this series because of manu benett and he plays awesome roles in spartacus and Arrow, so i thought this movie might be good as well. Luckly he played another role, where he could rage around and has much power :D
I wasn't expecting this from a MTV show.. It just works! Until now the series have a lot of potential, I'm hoping that they don't f*ck this up :) Recommending it.
I gotta be honest, I expected a whole lot less from MTV, but God dammit they pulled it off. Its like Game of thrones meets twilight meets Lord of the rings, meets Legend of the seeker, and it REALLY works, like the first episodes of G.O.T you really dont know what is gonna happen , but you are certain its gonna be #EPIC, #HOOKED, its something you can really get into
I really like this show. It's fun and exciting and something I never thought that I'd like. All three of the main cast are likeable and It's official I'm hooked.
the screen play of the series is not up to the level of the content of the story,may be you will get bored by watching if you have already watched got and vikings
I believe that this series has a lot of potential. A lot of different angles and routes that can be taken. It's a great series so far and I'm having high hopes for the future!
After watching the first few episodes my interest has slowly lacked in this show. I've really tried to get into it as I have been wanting a good fantasy show since Game of Thrones but I'm left bitterly dissapointed.
episode 4 video link is the same as episode 3 video link! please fix this problem.
the lasp episode released was in january 12th and the next will be in january 26th so the one from january 19 is wrong
This show is NEVER going to make it. Every episode shows a drop in ratings. Last week's episode dropped over 200,000 viewers.
I got an idea. Lets get a bunch of actors together that are more pretty than talented and put them in a mythological setting. Then lets throw in some forced and obvious chemistry between some of the characters and a predictable plot and then market it to teenage girls and then throw it on tv. I'd give it less than one star if I could.
Just watched the first episode, and whilst some parts are slightly cringey, I can see potential in this series, both story wise and visually.
can someone explain how the hell i watched episode 4 last week? with the deamon attacking the princess inside the palace.. checked tv.com and it confirms that ep4 is about that but i saw that 1 week ago? very confusing :D
High budget, nice relief from other crappy attempts. Finally a good fantasy series.
So far I'm loving the characters. Well maybe not Eretreya but I'll see if she grows on me.
I just finished watching the first episode, and I felt like it was REALLY cheaply made. I liked the demons the most, but the whole thing is just so cheap - like the whole cgi fantasy forest/tree, the 'elf stones' which look like neon plastic, everything seems all over the place and it feels like they're trying to make the story run WAY too fast before anyone even has time to digest or LIKE it. I don't know about the first episode :/
A great mix between dystopian genre and fantasy genre, episodes are great so far and CGI is well done, so far a very enjoyable show. Recommended!
The "2nd" episode is oficially the 3rd. The 1st one should be divided in two, because every single episode as 40-45 min. IM IN LOVE WITH THIS SERIE.
Nice series, with a pretty decent (for now) plot. Good music in the mix and perfect photography/CGI. The only problem it has is the blond actor (playing the half-elf) and the brunette actress (playing the main character). They F*****G SUCK. But hey, it's worth watching anyway.
Its a very thrilling series. I would love to watch what comes next. People who love game of thrones and outlander we definite like this.
Quite good so far! I wonder if anyone else ships Amberle and Eretria. I fuckin love Eretria!!
god damn been waiting for a serie like this its easy to see they use the right amount of money to make this work. look forward to the next ep
i must say after watching the first four episodes I'm hooked reminds me of Merlin in many ways, as to the comment about modern dialect they live in a world that is after modern civilization, we do not know what happened to all of the humans and their building but this is after s in one episode you see an old rusty helicopter and will comments "i wonder what that was", so it is not in like medieval times. Overall the CGI is pretty well done and the story line is exciting, i can't wait for the oth
The only thing well done so far is the cg. I will keep watching to see if this gets better. Notes: -Overusage of intense background music -Too much modern dialect -Way too much focus on trivial relationships -Compositionally speaking, wasn't terrible, but felt sloppy in places
This series is wonderful! I already love it, I also love Wil and Amberle, their chemistry is simply amazing.
As a person who did not read the books I found this show very enjoyable. Awesome visuals, cast, and acting so far. Let's hope the following episodes stay this way!
The series really suprised me yesterday i loved it so much i actually binged watched episode 3 and 4 on Mtv.com
Oh my gosh, this is AMAZING!! i really thought it would be "boring" but boy! I was wrong!
Amazing.... I love it till now. Hope it goes like this cause i will rate 10 stars <3
been waiting for this ever since I read my first Shannara book. My favorite would be 'The Genesis of Shannara' trilogy series (first one is called Armageddon's Children and is my all time favorite Shannara book)
This show is GREAT, i just cant beleave the end of the first episode, cant wait to see the second episode :D
I'm so happy, this serie is going to be super amazing. (Also, Austin Butler is bae)
just watching the trailer and u can already tell this series will be filled with excellences
if you like lord of the rings or anything like that trust me you will love this :) cant wait for more.
