This is a great start of a discussion, and makes my job easier…
I’m actually looking at the discussions on Legend of the Seeker on various sites to see how it is being perceived and if I can answer any questions about the show that people may have.
First off, it’s being produced by ABC Studios. While the source novels are the Terry Goodkind Sword of Truth books (beginning with Wizard’s First Rule, also the original name of the show) the fact that it is being made into a television series means there will be some latitude with regard to storytelling and adaptation. The show promises some great action, locations, and storylines and has the added benefit of a proven production team, including Sam Raimi. Having read the first three scripts (the two-hour premiere, and the first episode following) I can honestly say I’m looking forward to the next installment. The stories have a great pace.
Again, any questions, please feel free to ask. Terrygoodkind.com and .net should also have some information on the show soon.
This show is so bad as to be un-watchable. Please dear God cancel it as soon as possible.
The acting is awful.
The “Special” in the special effects is like the special Olympics, RETARDED
The stories are Bad and
the “fight” scenes are awful.
I normally support all Sci-fi/fantasy shows since they are so rare, I can;t wait for this one to go away.
It gives The Sword of truth series a bad name.
The only good thing I can see is that I probably won’t be seeing any of the people who like it at the local Mensa meetings.
