I've watched around half of the first season, hoping desperately that the show would pick up and I'd see something original or entertaining. So far it is a vapid rehash of Arthurian Legend and other better sci fi series. With none of the humor of Hercules and Xena, and the characters lacking the charisma of a Lucy Lawless etc- the show is becoming a chore to watch. This last episode was the final straw- I knew Richard's brother was destined to die the moment he appeared on screen in "Hartland." Everything is terribly predictable, and all of the Daharans are one-dimensional evildoers. The few characters that exhibit moral ambiguity (and therefore might be interesting-like the mother confessor and the wizard from "Elixir") are immediately killed off. The dialogue is wooden, and the attractive leads remain chaste save for a single kiss.
The fight scenes seem well choreographed and the special effects are above average, and Craig Horner is a major hottie. Those constitute the only high points.
