In the second season the budget is bigger, the effects more impressive and there are more battles. It’s all about good defeating evil (that old problem). There are a number of twists and turns and some unexpected deaths.
It’ definitely a darker series, more blood and death. Unfortunately the overall story isn’t as good and sometimes gets a bit confusing.
Also, the young actors are looking more like Hollywood stars than characters from a dusty fantasy future. There is also a strange inconsistency regarding technology. Clearly it’s in the future, but there is electricity but no use for it apart from making awesome weapons !
Despite the teaser at the end, this was the last season.
