Listen, Subscribe, view Episode Sources and scope out our latest Fan Competitions here ShannaraWorld.com

NOTE - THERE WILL BE SPOILERS! 

In this episode we keep going with our S01E01 Chosen P1 deep-dive, introducing our male lead in The Shannara Chronicles 'Wil Ohmsford' and his 'famous' Uncle 'Flick Ohmsford'.

Readers Notes in this Episode.
Readers Note 1. in Terry Brooks’ “Armageddon’s Children” it is alluded to that the weaponry deployed during the Great War was so destructive in nature that the Earth’s surface itself was terraformed by the fighting.
End Readers Note 1.

Readers Note 2. in the Elfstones of Shannara we discover through Allanon that the (Blue) Elfstones must be given freely to another person if their power is to be called upon and utilised. It’s also important to note that Shey Ohmsford is Wil’s Grand Father in Elfstones of Shannara, and from the novel’s text we find they had a less troubled relationship than in The Shannara Chronicles.
End Readers Note 2.

Readers Note 3. in the Sword of Shannara we discover that Flick Ohmsford is depicted as a both skeptical and easily worried character, yet he has deep and unwavering concern for his family, and bravery born of stubborn-persistence. And we also find that Shey Ohmsford shared the same skepticism of magic and tales of evil as Wil now does.

READERS NOTES for EPISODE 4:

Readers Note 1. 
..in this scene we see for the first time, the East bank of the “Rill Song River” and the “Elfitch” (a series of seven protective ramps and gates) that feature heavily in the battle scenes of ‘The Elfstones of Shannara’.
End Readers Note 1.

Readers Notes 2.
..in the ‘Elfstones of Shannara’ there is no reference to The Gauntlet (or any form of competitive race) being the method of selection for The Chosen.
End Readers Note 2.

Readers Note 3.
..during the final movement of 'Elfstones of Shannara' it is mentioned that The Chosen have traditionally been male Elves - but there is no concrete reason given for this. Beyond Druidic speculation.

In this episode we go through all the major movements in 'The Shannara Chronicles' Opening Credits incl. 

  • The choice of music and sound design.
  • Why Ruelle's "Until We Go Down" is a near perfect choice for Shannara.
  • We look at the fall of the Old World, The Great Wars, and the rise of the new races-of-man (humans, dwarves, gnomes and trolls). 
  • We discuss the Griffin-esque statues that populate an entire scene and what they might mean for the show going forward. 
  • We introduce two of the central themes in The Shannara Chronicles (1. the ongoing tension between the races of the Four Lands, and 2. the importance of [spoiler] The Ellcrys to our S1 story arc). 

READERS NOTES for EPISODE 3:

Readers Note 1. 
"It is mentioned in the text of Terry Brooks’ ‘Armageddon’s Children’ and also in ‘the Sword of Shannara’ that the Great Wars lead to the destruction of the Old World and poisonedthe Earth for an age). [ from both texts we can infer that Nuclear weapons were deployed, and possibly even chemical & biological weapons were used]."

How did REAPER find itself On The Bubble? 

  • The show opened to great critical support, but low audience numbers.
  • Reaper, like many other new shows, was interrupted by the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of American strike.
  • The show never regained what little momentum it did have prior to the strike.
  •  Show star Tyler Labine called for fan support to save Reaper. 
  • The fan campaign began to save the show.
