    It's nice to see a show with an Asian lead that isn't mirroring The Green Hornet. Although this whole plantation "massa" feel is subconsciously a bit off putting. I was hoping to see real kingdoms.

    Which begs the question, how the fuck do you outlaw guns and have everyone obey? I know this was done to prevent Gunkata hijinks and stick to traditional martial arts, but they might have to resort to some bullshit explanation to deal with this unrealistic scenario.

    This dude activated DEVIL TRIGGER for a minute.. that guy wasn't ready for it.

    There is some prime mutt hotness as well in the previous scene. A quick check of imdb reveals she was on The Tomorrow People on CW recently. Hopefully she's a regular.

    I recognized her from that Gawd awful show as well. She and the other girls on the show were solid eye candy though.

    I'm sure he'll unlock his hidden D-lineage powers like the boy has later on in the series. They are from the same region after all.

    I thought the plantation setting was interesting but yeah it could have been European feudalism just as easy without alienating anyone.

    Yeah, I had this thought too. They probably wont say anything at all about it. There doesn't seem to be a "Federal Government" that oversees the barons that would have the power to do something like that. That I caught anyway, I didn't finish the episode haha.

    They probably wont mention guns again OR one of the barons is going to have a huge stash and get hammered by all sides.

    There's layers to the logic when it comes to world building. You can create a story with semi-superhuman fighters and Devil Trigger dudes and it still wouldn't cancel out the irrationality of shifty, conquest-thirsty barons not using conventional weaponry.

    If the narrator didn't say they were banished and just eliminated the concept altogether I wouldn't be questioning the scenario. I would've pretended they never existed or the tech was lost.

    Them having exaggerated choreography =\= going against human nature.

    Did I mention wanting to have guns? I actually like the concept and the pilot, I'm just questioning the execution.

    You asked how they keep order without guns. The same way any other show/movie without guns does it. The head honcho is some OP dude and/or just has the respect. Or apparently as we have seen, maybe some supernatural crap.

    No he asked how everyone unanimously agreed to go, "Okay! No guns for anyone. I promise!" and not have 1 person stash a whole fuckload of fire arms and rise up and merk the rest of the non-gun-having world.

    Ah misunderstood it. Well who knows... maybe they do have guns somewhere or the production of guns stopped a long time ago.

    Yeah I just find the notion of these guys in a lawless and unforgiving post-apocalypse having a longstanding "gentleman's agreement" regarding outlawing firearms. In any case, I already have high hopes for the show so it'll be interesting to see how the entire story progresses. The boy's ability might give us a clue as to how the world went back to the Dark Ages.

    I like good choreography based on real techniques but I am guessing this is a bunch of slow wide punchy 80's stuff? I'll give it a try

    do you know what wuxia is? cause if i said do you like wuxia and you think 80s american action....that really makes no sense. if your lookin for realistic action....this isnt the place.

    The Widow has proven herself to be quite formidable. I was expecting the Barons to be more like politicians based on Quinn being like a southern dandy in the pilot, but it's nice to see they can get their hands bloody. Quinn and his psycho progeny with the inferiority complex gotta go though.

    The Widow going Berserker Barrage X on that henchman was so beastly. Dude had a bad day.

    So far the choreography has been good and the world building allows for more suspension of disbelief in terms of the action. There definitely will be more sci-fi/fantasy elements we're going to see later on.

    Another good thing is how they make sure to have at least 2 solid action scenes each ep.

    Quinn is a badass too though. I'm expecting all the Barons to be pretty awesome fighters in their own right. Quinn's son is obviously the exception to this rule... Probably why he's trying to seed up the little blonde hussy.

    This is a world ruled by strength. If you don't have it, you don't live very long.

    Yeah it is cool to see that the head hancho's may very well be the most dangerous ones in a fight. I'd love to see a scene where someone calls out a Baron and be like " You wouldn't be shit without your Clippers. You're just a weak man/women guarded by strong men/women willing to fight for you" Baron be like

    "Oh really? Give us some space boys/girls"

    *Clippers back up*

    "Alright then. You think I'm just a weak man/woman that hides behind strong men/women? Well here's your chance to prove it"

    *Guy attacks*

    *Baron slaughters him with ease*

    "ANYONE ELSE THINK I'M A WEAK MAN/WOMAN SURROUNDED BY STRONG MEN/WOMEN?!"

    "No Baron!"

    "Good..."

    You can counter the slam if you grab onto their ankle before they pick you up. No, I ain't an expert, just saw it in a couple of mma matches.
