New TV Series: Legend of the Seeker (2008)

There is a new epic fantasy series on the CWTV called Legend of the Seeker. It is based on the The Sword of Truth novels by Terry Goodkind. It is similar to the Lord of the Rings franchise. Sam Raimi, producer of Hercules: The Legend Continues, Xena: Warrior Princess, and the blockbuster Spiderman movie franchise, is directing this series. Here is the synopsis below:

In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, a mysterious woman, Kahlan Amnell, appears in Richard Cypher's forest sanctuary seeking help...and more. His world, his very beliefs, are shattered when ancient debts come due with thundering violence. In their darkest hour, hunted relentlessly, tormented by treachery and loss, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword-to invoke within himself something more noble. Neither knows that the rules of battle have just changed...or that their time has run out. This is the beginning. One story. One Rule. Witness the birth of a legend.

I discovered this TV series through a friend referral. I watched the first two episodes, and I am hooked. The actors are great, and the storyline is very good. It has magic, wizards, and adventure. This is what I currently know about the series:

  • It consists of 22 episodes total.
  • It runs from November 2008 to July 2009.
  • Each episode is 42 minutes long.
  • It airs weekly every Saturday at 8:00pm Eastern Time.

I will have a full review in summer 2009. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
