5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Season was a huge improvement May 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first season was a little slow (at least by comparison) but season 2 is awesome! There has been much more action and the plots have gotten better with the addition of the reformed Mord Sith Cara to the merry little band and even briefly having Darken Rahl (villain from season 1) join them. If you liked Lord of the Rings or that sort of thing, this is a must buy for you. It has wizards, witches, magical swords, women that can make you tell the truth, prophecies, dark lords, epic struggles between good and evil and even a few of the actors from Lord of the Rings. All it's missing is a ring and some elves, but I guess they had to leave something for season 3...if there will be a season 3 that is. As the previous reviewer said, it is doubtful the show will be picked up for a 3rd season. It has suffered from a serious lack of publicity almost from day 1. Were it not for Briget Regan going on G4 to promote the show I wouldn't have known it existed and if not for Tivo I would have never known when it was on. I watch it on WGN (which has said they will not air season 3) and the only promos for the show I ever see come on right after watching the episode. So the only people that will ever know when it is on are those that already knew when it was on....how do you grow an audience like that? It's kinda like a guy cutting off his horse's leg and then complaining that it doesn't ride fast enough so he shoots it. Hopefully syfy will pick it up. If you are a fan of the show or haven't seen it yet but want to, please Email to feedback@syfy or disney/abc and ask them to give us a 3rd season so they can at least give the show a proper ending. There are numerous sites that have a link to sign the petition for season 3 Sign it or risk being burned with Wizard's Fire! Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars With the sword of truth July 13, 2009
Format:DVD
For the record, I am not a fan of Terry Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" fantasy series, so I didn't really expect to enjoy the TV adaptation.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A treat for fantasy fans. August 1, 2009
Format:DVD
"Legend of the Seeker" is the latest fantasy television series produced by the legendary Sam Raimi -whose contributions to the genre include Hercules The Legendary Journeys and it's sister show Xena Warrior Princess. While those shows were rather light-hearted romps, this one takes the material a little more seriously and is based on a series of novels written by Terry Goodkind. It begins with a pair of women in white being chased by soldiers. A local farmboy stumbles upon the second mysterious beauty after the first falls and decides to help her. The result of the meeting will be life-changing to say the least. The show's very strong mythology states that The Seeker is a man born unot a generation who is destined to rid the Midland realms of tyranny. Our heroic farmboy, Richard, is that Seeker. The woman he rescued is Kahlan, a Confessor whose power enables her to see through dishonesty and enslave people to her will through love. They are led by the mandatory wizard - in this case named Zeddicus- and the three set out together to end the rule of Darken Rahl, whose D'Haran armies threaten to dominate the Midlands and crush it's people under his boot. Not the most orignal setup, but the end result is effective and entertaining.

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. The rest is just window-dressing.

Terry Goodkind fans, did you enjoy the TV series?
I am a huge fan of the original Sword of Truth books, as well as Terry Goodkind. I won't get into an argument over whether he's a good author or not, because frankly, that's a matter of opinion more than anything. But as for the show, I will say that even being a fan of the books, I love it. ... Read More

Yes, it has English Subtitles, too. I just put in a disk from my copy of the DVD and checked.
