Fatherhood Sunny’s new cause
Into the Badlands, Showcase, Thursday at 9.30pm
THIS genre-bending martial arts series is loosely based on the Chinese tale Journey to the West. Into the Badlands is set in a post-apocalyptic future where Earth’s population is controlled by feudal barons.
In season three, Sunny (Daniel Wu, pictured) is living off the grid and doing his best to provide for his infant son Henry.
It is only when Henry contracts a mysterious illness that Sunny must join forces with Bajie and journey back into the Badlands, where a drawn-out war between The Widow and Baron Chau has destabilised the entire region, in the hope of finding a cure.
When a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim arrives on a mission to usher in a new era of peace, old enemies must band together.
