It was the familiar faces of the actors who portrayed Deathstroke in CW's Arrow and Gimili from Lord of The Rings appearing on the screen that drew my attention to The Shannara Chronicles. Now, I know what you're thinking: MTV producing a sci-fi television show? That's nucking futs! These guys polluted TV with Jersey Shore! Well, I can't make up your mind for you, but I will say I've already set my DVR for this show, so that should tell you the trailer (which you can check out below) speaks volumes.
The panel went on sell me even more, despite the uncomfortable bromance between Manu Bennett and Austin Burns, on the journey of the story and how closely the show stays to the book. Plus, for those of you just looking for additional eye candy on television, Poppy Drayton definitely brings it, with just an edge of badass.
So without any further ramblings, check out the trailer and make your own decisions.
