OMG I had no clue they were making the Sword of Truth novels into a film. All of my fav authors seem to be getting screen deals atm, I was really sorry to see The Dresden Files end (the books are amazing and the show was pretty cool). Charline Harris is a wonderful writer and I love true Blood though it is quite a bit darker than the books I think. Laurell K Hamilton also has a deal (movie and series if i remember rightly).
Im really looking forwards to seeing Legend of the Seeker, I loved the books so I hope the film lives up to them, have to say though the casting doesn't look that great from the promo.

If you are a fan of Sword of Truth you are not going to like the show at all. I have read all 11 book sin the series (more than once I have to admit). I understand that there is a lot detail to the books that you cannot put on the screen but core parts of the story are not done right. Richard is presented the Sword of Truth completely differantly, the Book of Orden is wrong, the Barrier, The length of the hair in the Midlands, When Richard finds out Kahlan is a Confessor, Char etc. Its done in the style of Xena and Hercules and to me that cheapens the story. I am very disapointed in the series, I expected some things but there was to much here and I will not continue to watch.

I have to agree with jandxm. I watched the first two episodes on the day the show first aired, but I could not bring myself to watch last weekend. Whoever is involved with making the show ought to be slapped!

Interesting! It doesn't look all that bad! That slow motion matrix-esque move was nothing short of epic!

lastyear:
dude have you read the books? they've butchered them, its really disappointing. i'd been looking forward to it forever and when i'd heard sam raimi (think hercules, xena) i was a bit apprehensive but decided to watch anyway...disappointing to say the least. i too have read ALL of the books, more than once...and i understand that it is difficult to incorporate everything but they didn't have to make it so campy, the feeling evoked from the books is much more adult and (less cheap..didn't know how to express that lol). i just wish they had kept that atleast...it feels almost exactly like hercules...with SIGHTLY better special effects.

I couldn't agree more with everyone. I can't believe someone would want to adapt the sword of truth if they weren't going to do it with devotion and accuracy.

I just finished watching the first two episodes. I have never read the books, but I find the series is far superior to many shows offered on television. I am hooked.

@beverly521 - If you even remotely like this series you should DEFINITELY read the series.... or at least the first 6 :-D
But I agree as well with everyone else after watching the first two episodes. The show just feels very cheap to me. And I just feel that everything looks different than what I pictured it. I guess thats a problem with turning novels into a tv show though. Anyone know why they would change the whole thing with the book of counted shadows?? Kahlan brought it with her through the barrier???

I have to agree that the series doesn't follow the books, anyone who read the books would have to agree that is true. It seems the only thing that they used from the series of novels in this show is the names.Novels aside, (disappointed in the translation) the series itself is not half bad. I didn't like it at first because I was really HOPING that they could give us a real translation of the novels, which IMHO would rival the Lord of Rings series of movies. I've been watching the episodes here on SideReel since I don't have Cable or the channels this series is shown on. I'm convinced (HOPING) that the series will end up getting closer to the book by the end of the first season.

When I saw the billboard for the show I was thrilled until learned that it was being produced by abc which is backed by Disney. There is no way they will accurately portray alot of what happens in the books in the series because it not mainstream tv appropriate. For example, mord sith, Demmin Nass's sick pleasures and how about how Darken Rahl acquires his subtractive magic. I have been in the middle of reading the series and I am hooked, the show is fine if you take it separately. I do however have to agree that it seems cheap, I loved Xena and Hercules but those shows were done in the 90's the crappy cgi was explainable then but now? I know it could be done much more believably especially since the network hosting it is not by any means going broke. The budget should be much better and quality should be made higher to honor this series. Funny to see Joxer in there in episode 4 and good to see Sam raimi doing another series.
