My brief review of the Shannara Chronicles premiere: not gay enough.

My less brief review: it suffers from pilot-itis, where the script is so desperate to explain who these characters are and their relationships with each other that the dialogue is nothing but “Hello, my best friend since childhood! Remember when that plot-significant thing happened? Here are my motivations, in order from most to least important.”

That said, if you enjoy watching Manu Bennett do his best Angsty Gandalf impression, this just might be your show.

“Elfstones” continues to be the most cringeworthy retainer-slurping arrangement of syllables ever produced by the English language, and hearing it spoken out loud doesn’t help.
