My best bud clued me into this new show called LEGEND OF THE SEEKER.
Well, I love fantasy stuff, but with other shows we already watch, I sort of dragged my feet to watch this.
But after catching the second half of one on tv a few weeks back, both my wife and I were definitely willing to see more. We've made room for it in our schedule!
You can see the whole Season 1 thus far on there. Its FREE and had good quality video!
We are now HOOKED on this show! We just watched episode 8 last night and it was one of, if not the most intense shows I have ever seen!
And they didnt have to kill off good characters (Joss Wedon) or blurr the lines between good and evil to do it!
THIS is talent folks. Enjoyable, fun, and exciting!
Oh, and though I love Star Wars TONS and TONS...Lucus could also take some tips from this show. (when you see episode 8, you'll see what I mean)
Anyway check it out! If you like fantasy, Im betting you'll like this show!

I will throw a second on this. I have to agree, it's a pretty good show if you're into the medieval/fantasy genre. It's got a good looking female lead, wizardy, and the bad guys have some pretty cool "uniforms". Well, the ones in charge do anyway.

I've seen this...glad you like it, but it is NOT for me...just too formulaic, like Stargate SG-1, and the even worst Stargate Atlantis...I LOVE the Stargate Movie though, passionately.
HEUTE G.I.JOE, MORGEN DIE WELT!

Just recently caught this show.
I like it a lot.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?
The Reign of Tears has begun! Check out my original G.I.Joe story!

It's simply the tv version of Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth books. A very popular series, but one I never got into...read the first one and barely finished it, never bothered going past that.
I do like the concept of the Wizard's First Rule, though.
'People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.'
Now, when/if they finally get around to a series based on GRR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire, I'm there.

I gotta chime in here. You guys don't know me yet, but you will in the upcoming months. Legend of the Seeker is not easily describable. Easily, one of the best shows out there. Being an old school DnD player and DM, Zed is what a Wizard was supposed to be. I am inclined to go on a rant here. STOP! Watch this show. Hulu - Watch your favorites. Anytime. For free.

As for the show I'm stunned because Kahlan is pretty much exactly how I pictured her in the books, but Richard is way more... ah... smexy looking... then I imagined him being. LOL. There was also WAY too much violence in the books, so this toned down for broadcast TV version really hits the right note IMO.
But as for me... if I had to choose a fantasy series to adapt to TV I would definitely pick Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.

I love the show. I've read the books, and even though the series changes a lot, I've enjoyed it so far. Because honestly there's stuff in the books I don't like. In some ways I feel the show has improved the story. I know that might sound bad, but the characters still feel faithful more than anything.
Also, the show is not afraid to kill off interesting or important characters either. I kind of like that.
The only problem I have is that I wish it was on cable because that way we could get a bit more sexuality like TRUE BLOOD .
Anyway, the good news is that the show is coming back for a second season. So Legend of the Seeker proved that an original syndicated TV series can still do well. It came out at a time when people were calling synidcated programming all but dead.
The cast is awesome. Bruce Spence as Zedd. Also, Craig Parker as Darken Rahl. Awesome! Great villain. Kahlan and Richard are both very likable.

i haven't seen the show but i might give it a whirl based on the praise you guys are giving it. i must say, my only familiarity with it was one promo ad i saw during a Phillies game... and it looked cheesy and awful. i guess you can never judge a book by its cover.

Just watched a trailer for it, can't say that it piqued my interest at all.
Maybe another time.
