There is a new fantasy TV series that started the season last night. Legend of the Seeker.
The two hour pilot had some rough spots. Most fantasy or sci-fi series have some glitches trying to set the background and environment for a complicated story. This one was no different.
Many of the critics are trashing it. I find that TV critics tend to hate anything that makes you think a little or follow a story line. They love 'reality' TV and game shows.
I rarely watch TV anymore, it is so mind numbing. I can count on one hand the shows that I watch regularly.
I am always willing to give a fantasy or sci fi series a chance and see what happens.
This one has villains, heroes, wizards, witches, magic, an enchanted sword, a destroyed Book of Shadows (damn!), horses, monsters, scenery and a story.
What more could you ask for?
I am hoping that it lasts long enough to smooth the rough spots and get going. I could use a heroic epic complete with magic on some upcoming winter evenings.
