13 Reasons Why “Legend Of the Seeker” is Hot

I just finished watching the first season of Legend of the Seeker, an action-adventure fantasy television series based on The Sword of Truth novels by Terry Goodkind.  Because I haven’t read the books yet I can’t vouch for how true or not the show is to the books, but on its own it’s quite entertaining.

(I don’t think film and serials should be directly compared against novels they’re derived from anyways – they are different mediums for story-telling and therefore impossible to keep identical.)

Here’s 13 reasons why I think this show is hot:

  1. Magic and mayhem abounds
  2. It’s action-packed and adventurous
  3. Actors that are well suited for their roles (they definitely get better over time)
  4. Richard Cypher, “The Seeker”, is so yumm!
  5. Honorable heroes and heroines that stick to their morals (even when it’s really, really hard)
  6. Mmmm …. forbidden love
  7. There are so few good fun Fantasy series on TV!
  8. Hot men tortured by hot women (there’s something wonderful about a gorgeous guy helplessly hanging from the ceiling, dontcha think?)
  9. The writing is surprisingly smart – even the bad guys are more clever than you’d expect
  10. Women that kick butt and look good while doing it
  11. The characters often end up in seemingly hopeless predicaments with high tension, and you won’t often be able to guess how they’re going to get out of it
  12. Stunning costumes – I want this white one …
  13. Each episode is better than the one before

Do you watch Legend of the Seeker? If so, I’d love to hear what you think.

  1. I loves loves loves this show! I was a fan of Terry Goodkind for a while. I did not read the Sword of Truth books so I can't tell how close they follow the story line but I find the show very entertaining. And you would love this white outfit. But remember you can only wear it after you've broken him lol. Season 2 is finishing up so catch up!

  2. I feel kind of out of the loop because I've never heard of this show. Then again, I rarely ever watch TV, so I miss out on alot. LOL It sounds great though. 🙂

    • Oh, I'm the same way mostly. I only just heard of this show myself a couple of months ago.

      I didn't even watch it on TV – I watched it on Netflix Instant Movies. It if wasn't for DVR /Tivo, Netflix and Hulu I'd never see any TV show ever.

      I highly recommend you get a DVR or Tivo, or Netflix. You can watch shows whenever you DO have the time.

  3. Yum!

    Is this on Scy Fy channel, or whatever they're calling themselves these days. It might be worth my while to try and pry the remote control our of my son's hand.

    • I believe this show is by Disney-ABC, not SyFy. It's funny that I can't tell you what channel it comes on because I've never actually caught it on TV yet. I just set up my DVR to start recording the remaining episodes of Season 2, and it looks like it will be coming on WGN in my area.

      You can go to http://dadt.com/lots/ and enter your zip code in the form on the right-hand side of the page to find your local time and channel for the show.

  4. I'm going to have to check this out…didn't even know they were making it a series until this week!

  5. Have to admit that we don't watch it, mainly because we read the first two books in the series and didn't like the rest, so we thought the show might not be very good, either. Sorry! Don't hate me! LOL!

    *hugs*

  6. I love, love, love this show! For all the reasons you mentioned. It does get better, particularly into season 2. It's great to have a real hero, who isn't full of himself, and genuine heroines too.

    It also doesn't run very close to the books, which can only be a good thing.

  7. Fun list. Though I haven't seen it.

  8. I have the books, and there are some differences, like Richard is taller in the books with broader shoulders. And there's more graphic torture in the books, but not in the show. For that I am glad. *shudder*

    Happy TT.

    I've never seen it, but I think I'm gonna have to check this out. Awesome costumes and a hot tortured guy? I'm so there!

  10. Yeah, OK…I pretty much have to see this. HAVE TO. I know I am going to love it, so thank you in advance!!

  11. Have not heard of this one, though I think my BIL has read the books.

  12. I have a feeling this was filmed in New Zealand too. That's another good reason for your list.

  13. Hellooooo!!! *uber-pounce*

    I think Zuly told me about this, and I forgot! This is a MUST see because the books I've read so far absolutely, utterly and completely sucked me in. I actually stopped partway through the third because the antagonist pissed me off so bad I had to put the book down… *hangs head*
