The last straw show ruining episode

Well, I thought that the show maybe could possibly get back on the right track. Maybe there was a chance of actually telling the real storyline. But nooo. This episode completely blew the ending out of the water. The big ending with Kahlan confessing Richard didn't really make sense anyway since for some reason he hadn't memorized the book of shadows - but I thought maybe they could come up with some way to do it anyway. But since this episode happened, that can't possibly be the ending at all. And fyi, I'm not ruining anything, in fact reading the books themselves doesn't ruin anything since the stories are in no way related. The books are amazing, ingenious, and fullfilling - this show is the opposite. Whenever someone says to me, "I don't really like fantasy" I know that they are reffering to this cliched crazy story-driven-by-unexplained-stupid-magic type of story. Whereas the Sword of Truth is not that at all. Any, I'm going to finish on this note: It pisses me off when I go to Barnes and Nobles and see the cardboard thing that says, "Sword of Truth: Now a television show!" It should say: "There is now a tv show that vaguely resembles this book!"

Gosh, let it go. The show is based on the books, it isn't a direct translation. I thought this whole argument was over. I don't mean this dismissively, but just seeing all these complaints every time I come to this page gets really tiring. If it's that offensive, I just don't understand the need to continue to watch it?

Haha, there is a reason why the tv show isn't actually a bunch of movies that are named after the books (something like Harry Potter). I think the point is to add a unique twist/flavor that even the (fanatical book) readers (, who have read the book a million times,) can enjoy.
I personally don't like the.. twisty windy wirey stuff, so I don't watch the show frequently.
