Just got done watching the latest Legend of the Seeker episode on Netflix. I’m glad Netflix has them 2 days after they premier because I completely forgot to watch it on Saturday, mostly because of all the Finals studying, not to mention it comes out at a very late time: 10:35PM.
So the new episode was just great. There are very few shows that get better and better with each episode, continuously. Legend of the Seeker would have even more potential as a TV show if it hadn’t been based on a book, I think that’s what is hurting the ratings, the people who love the book but hate the show and are the ones complaining about it (not saying the books sucks! —keep reading). It really sucks for those who do want the series to continue but are now facing the show being canceled (or is on the brink of cancellation, I don’t know, too many rumors). And I’m not saying that shows based on books are bad, is just the people who can’t get over the fact that TV shows, just like movies, will not be 100% true to the story.
This is how I see it. The books is one universe, the TV show another. The more the merrier, no? I have started reading the Sword of Truth books which the show is based on and I am enjoying them even if they differ from the TV show, and no, even if I would have started reading the books then watched the show, I would still say the same thing—both are different, both can to be enjoyed differently, but that’s just me.
I really hope Legend of the Seeker somehow makes it to a third season, this show brings me back to some good-old Xena times, even if it doesn’t compare to what Xena was—but I think that of any show. Oh, I love Xena… Anyways, I’m really hoping this show comes back for a third season, I am too hooked into it for it to stop.
If you have no idea what I’ve been talking about these past few paragraphs, then I suggest you watch Legend of the Seeker either via Netflix (Instant Watching) or via Hulu or some other site that hosts it—legally, of course. It really is a good show, visually striking, too. I’m gonna start to read the books this summer, already read part of the first one and I’m enjoying a different aspect of the show.
Ways to support Legend of the Seeker:
It has all the information needed and how to donate in order to keep the show running, surprisingly it has a whooping $9,000+ in funds. If anyone starts watching it and is wondering about a few parts or just anything overall, contact me via my e-mail or Twitter and I’ll be happy to help—I’d love to discuss it with someone, too. :)
