I love this series!!!!! I know have two favorite's The Legend of the Seeker and Doctor Who!
While a genre of it's own (in my own opinion) it takes the landscape of Xena and Hercules, the visual effects of Star Trek and Doctor Who, the chemistry of anyone who has ever felt a huge crush for someone (I sooooo have a crush on Bridget Regan), and a fantastically creative plot from well Terry Goodkind. And simply turns it into a breath taking, mesmerizing, awe inspiring hour of television masterpiece!!
I didn't know about Terry Goodkind or his book's until I saw a few episodes, but after the first 15 minutes of the pilot I was a fan of the series!! Now I'm a fan of the author, I just borrowed the first book; Wizard's First Rule from the library a couple days ago.
