Television's epic fantasy Legend Of The Seeker returns for a spell-binding second season. Relive every exciting moment uninterrupted in this sensational 5-disc box set complete with exclusive bonus features.
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.
An epic saga comes to an end with these 22 episodes (on five discs) from the second and final season of the sword-and-sorcery series Legend of the Seeker. Actually, there's a teaser at the end of the last episode that promises more to come, but since the show wasn't renewed, we may never know what its creators had in store. But there's plenty here for adherents to digest in the meantime. When the last season ended, Richard Cypher (Craig Horner), better known as the Seeker, had at last managed to kill his mortal enemy, Darken Rahl (Craig Parker). But although he may be dead, Rahl isn't gone; dispatched to the Underworld, he now answers to the Keeper, lord of that desolate realm (a scene straight out of a Brueghel or Bosch painting, with a fiery landscape crowded with miserable writhing souls). The Keeper, whom we hear but never see, has already set in motion his plan to win the "ultimate battle between good and evil," as it's breathlessly described; he's opened a rift in the Earth's surface, through which he plans to dispatch all manner of monsters, "banelings" (dead souls restored to life--if they agree to kill on the Keeper's behalf), and other bad mojo. Only our hero can stop him, of course. He and three cohorts--Kahlan (Bridget Regan), a powerful "Confessor" and Richard's love interest; Zedd (Bruce Spence), a clever wizard; and Cara (Tabrett Bethell), a member of a band of malevolent warrior women called the Mord'Sith who's now on the side of the good guys--set out on a quest to find the Stone of Tears, which alone can seal the rift. Needless to say, there are many obstacles to overcome (spells, curses, wizards and witches, zombies on the loose, tough chicks in leather catsuits) and battles to be fought along the way.
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

Update: Season 2 just ended with a bang! You do not want to miss it. If you were one of the many that were not fortunate enough to watch this show at a regular time slot and have any interest at all in the show, you MUST buy this dvd and you will not be disappointed. Things ended in a way that if that is really the end it is an ending worthy of rememberance but there are still questions and certainly a hint that the true dark lord of the series could come back with a vengeance. I for one want to see what happens next. Keep fighting Seeker fans! Maybe we can get a partial season or tv movies or something. Visit the websites like legendoftheseeker dot org (it doesn't allow me to post the actual link but you can figure it out with that) for info on who to write and demand more Legend of the Seeker.
I would definitely recommend this series to sci fi fantasy fans... It's unfortunate that the series didn't continue beyond season 2. It has so much potential. One good thing, the series still continues on in the fanfic world... I wish some bright company or person would decide to continue the series with additional series or at the very least create a movie version... I would watch....hint hint!!!!!!
Magic, sorcery, forbidden love, evil villians tranport yourself to another time and place. Find yourself confessed, seek the truth. This is a must see! I am anxiously waiting for season 2 to be released as it will be purchased as soon as it is available. I am hoping that we will have a season 3. The journey must continue, there is so much more that needs to be told. Save our Seeker!
