The ultimate battle between good and evil reaches new heights as a tear in the veil separating the world of the living from the underworld unleashes the most powerful forces the world has ever known. Only the mythical Stone of Tears can seal the cracks forming across the globe and only the Seeker, with the help of Kahlan and a fiery Mord'Sith named Cara, can find the stone and close the rift once and for all.
Journey to the thrilling world of mystery and mysticism with all 22 episodes of Legend Of The Seeker: The Complete Second Season, and delve even deeper with never-before-seen bonus features available only on DVD.
Legend of the Seeker is bound to appeal to fans of The Lord of the Rings and its ilk (like Rings, it was filmed in New Zealand), as long as viewers are willing to lower their expectations. This is television, after all, with its smaller budgets and hurried shooting schedules, and its shortcomings are apparent in the acting (Horner is bland in the lead role, but no one will be winning any Emmys here), writing (the scripts have more than a few hokey moments), and production values like costumes, sets, and effects. But is it entertaining? Absolutely. --Sam Graham

But to my surprise, "The Legend of the Seeker: The Complete First Season" turned out to be a surprisingly solid fantasy adventure series, with plenty of swords, monsters, lush New Zelaand scenery, sorcery and a likable young Prophesied Hero. It has some cheesy genre cliches at the beginning, but quickly evolves into a good-hearted, action-packed series.
Young woodsman Richard Cypher (Craig Horner) rushes to help a Confessor woman who's being attacked by D'Haran soldiers -- and promptly finds himself accused of being her accomplice, and hunted by the D'Harans (who have made it through a magical barrier than cuts off the Westlands). When he goes to get help from the eccentric wizard Zed ("He's crazy! He talks to his chickens!"), he encounters the beautiful Confessor Kahlan Amnell (Bridget Regan) once again.
The big reveal from Zed and Kahlan: Richard is a prophesied hero called a Seeker, who must use a magical sword to defeat the evil overlord Darken Rahl (Craig Parker). When his life is ripped apart by murder and treachery, Richard reluctantly accepts his destiny, and sets off across the Midlands with Kahlan and Zed.
Unfortunately the Midlands have plenty of problems as well -- cruel D'Haran soldiers, Mord-Sith, magical maps, a boy who can read minds, some inconvenient magic shape-changing, the birth of a forbidden male Confessor, a string of impossible murders (including one seemingly committed by Richard), a malevolent wizard who is trying to create new Confessors, corruption in the Westlands, a plague created by Rahl, and a visit to the haunted tomb of an ancient Seeker bent on possessing Richard's body.Read more ›
While "Legend of the Seeker" has a lot of fantasy elements like magic, prophecies, and the occasional monster it never relies upon these elements. The strength lies within the individual stories and the characters within those stories.Read more ›

With Television basically being reality shows this is one of the few shows I go out of my way to watch. I am currently reading the books and was looking forward to the third season. Cancelling this show is an insult to the TV viewing audience; saying that viewers are incapable of any thought,... Read More
