Genre: Sci-fi/Fantasy

Year: 2009

Rating: NR

In this live-action fantasy series based on the Sword of Truth novels by Terry Goodkind, Craig Horner stars as Richard Cypher, a young woods guide whose world has been shattered by the murder of his father. When a mysterious woman, Kahlan Amnell (Bridget Regan), wanders into his forest hamlet, Cypher ends up joining forces with her and the wizard Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander (Bruce Spence) to defeat the evil wizard Darken Rahl and his minions.

Loosely based on Richard & Kalahan's journey from the Westlands to the Palace of Darken Rahl, from Terry Goodkind's novels and for god reason. In order to reach a wider audience it was important to not follow the books scene by scene otherwise the series would never have enough flow and action in it to keep people interested. The cast for the most part are all terrific in their roles and the settings are breath-taking also the effects are fantastic for a Television series. I never seen this when it aired but as soon as I began watching this on DVD I was hooked, as a fan of fantasy I got to say this delivers on every level with a captivating story,great action scenes and magic that delivers. I am not much of a Television person but this is one of the first Television series Ive ever gotten so hooked on, if your a fan of sci-fi fantasy this is a must own. This is a show that has so much potential and one that could run for a very long time. If you never seen Legend of The Seeker now is the time to start watching this great series from start to finish of season one. With each episode the series gets better and better and by the season finale your are left wanting more. The five-disc set comes packed with Special Features that include,Deleted Scenes, Forging The Sword: Crafting A Legend Go Behind The Scenes Of Wizard's First Rule On The New Zealand Set To See How The Show's Fantasy World Is Brought To Life, Words Of Truth: A Conversation With Terry Goodkind Take An Intimate Journey With Author Terry Goodkind To See Where The Series Was Created, Audio Commentaries.
