good for the most part
18 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

let's go point by point. There are 4 points total. A. Dar and Tao (and the actors portraying them) work together very well. There were a few episodes in the first season that made Tao look like an idiot but other than those I'd say they were equals in almost every respect throughout the series. They complimented each other well and Dar wasn't always the teacher. I especially like where they save each-others lives.

B there is a sense of cohesion to 75% of the episodes. The rest seem aimless and even contrary to the episodes in the main flow. I'm thinking of Guardian, circle of life and the role of the two Magic people; It didn't seem like the writers knew where to take them.

C. Nords rule! Nords, priests and even Iara included, season 2 enemies are great. Well Iara is more of an antagonist (pun intended) than an adversary. Season 2 episodes with Terrons weren't that great; thankfully there were not very many of those.

D.I love animals and this series shows us how wrong some of our preconceived notions about the stupidity and brutality of animals really is. When the focus is on the animals, that is when the show really shines.

Again, there are poor and contrary episodes in the show, but for the most part this is a forgotten treasure. Look it up in local listings here it's on at 4 am Saturday morning but still it's usually worth it. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
