Ok I'm behind on the series, sorry I'm military in Europe. The show is actually pretty good. It's entertaining and exciting. But............ I've read the series, twice. I sat and tried to follow the 3rd and 4th shows in the book. Sorry but were I Terry Goodkind there is no way I'd allow this to be on TV. Not under the pretense that it's even close to the books.
Like I said it's a good story but it isn't close to the books. the only things close are names of the charcters and the sword being the sword of truth.
I say shame on the writers for not even reading the books that they want to make a tv series from.
Look at Lord of the rings, well done. Sure some changes had to be made and some things cut out. It's understandable, books are always much much better then a movie.
But to call this anything close to the Sword of Truth series, hmmm shame on those people. If you produce something and base it from a book at least make it pretty close. Not just the names of people and places in a book and then write your own story.
A good show but it needs to follow the books if it wants to be based off of a brilliant writer's works
