Ok so yes legend of the seeker is not exactly the same as the books. But really what tv show based on a book mimics everything that happens exactly.
Gossip girl : i read all the books of the series and i watch all the episodes of gossip girl tv show both are great and both don't have the exact same storyline the structure of plot of the novels and show are the is the same but the storylines are totally different. Example of major difference is Vanessa she is sposed to be this bald pale skinned black-loving gothic photographer/artist. But in the show she is girly and isn't bald and she is dating Nate for gods sake but the show is still great!! Its the most talked about show thats on tv today.
People just suck it up and enjoy this awesome show!!
cause its great!
