Review: The Shannara Chronicles Season 1 Episode 5 “Reaper”

Though some backstory is given, raising character stakes, the shows slow overall pacing of the main arc means it has little impact, damaged further by half-done attempts at political subplots and stereotypical characters that lack development, while the directing remains forced and cheesy and some aspects feel contrived with each episode’s ‘fight sequence’ ending in a formulaic way. 3.5/10
