Legend of the Seeker
26 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I for one think it is great to have something like this on television. Good versus evil with the trio cast here is fun to watch. The special effects are terrific, and I like how the episodes are going. I love the wizard, the Seeker is awesome, and the Confessor makes my husband want to watch! Love it! Keep it coming!

It definitely reminds me of the Hercules/Xena type show, and I was always a big fan of those. This show is an update of those with an entertaining new cast, based on great stories by Terry Goodkind - how could it go wrong? The only thing I see wrong is that it isn't in wide enough distribution.
