Trivia

Originally named "Wizard's First Rule" (after the first book in "The Sword of Truth" series), the show was retitled "Legend of the Seeker" at Goodkind's suggestion, since the producers wanted to differentiate the show from the books, and because this would allow them the opportunity to cover the story within all the books in the series.

Unexpectedly charming!!
9 December 2008 | by (Brunei) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about the TV series, I knew it was an adaptation of a book. At first, I didn't want to watch it thinking that the TV series is surely not as good as the book. Of course. Surprisingly it is charming and captivating to watch. It is like an addiction, you want to watch it again and again.

I like all the main cast. Craig Horner as Richard from my opinion is a good actor(hunk!haha) and Bridget Regan as Kahlan was doing a really good job as the confessor. The wizard Zedd has a good sense of humour (kind of weird at first). I enjoyed the series so far.Can't wait for the next episodes..
