I'm pretty impressed so far with this mini series. I've read all the books of this series, and they were phenomenal. There are already some major differences between the story line of the series vs the books, but that's to be expected. At least it's nice to know how to pronounce all those names correctly now. :)
All in all, I enjoy this for itself, and the ideas it represents. We don't often get true fantasy series anymore, and it's refreshing to see one's favorite book series born on the screen.
