legend of the seeker?
« on: January 22, 2009, 11:50:40 PM »
i read all the Sword Of Truth books.  good series.  anyone watching the tv version?  i didn't even know it was on.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have watched one or two and to be honest find it kinda boring, could also be that the ones I managed to watch were weeks apart so no real story line, although it is pretty easy to figure out

   I read all the books they were great. I watched a few parts of the series they were .... disappointing.

i think it might be a good tween show.  you almost need to have read the books to know what the show is talking about, but the show doesn't follow the books.  i am watching it online as i have time.  hulu.com.  this is the start of the 2nd season.  don't know how far i'll make it.  i'm only half way through the 1st.
