Just started watching True Blood and Hung. Both are excellent, and I highly recommend them both.

TV Show that is Well Worth Watching

Posted in TV news on May 31, 2009 by eclipticepoch

I wanted to take a moment and advertise for a television show that I really enjoy. There is so few fantasy shows or even movies worth watching. So when I heard that an adaptation of Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth was in-production for television I was quite dismayed.

Upon viewing though, I have been quite impressed with the show. For anyone that was fans of Hercules or Xena (I use to enjoy some Hercules myself at a younger age), you will probably automatically enjoy the show. It is made by the same production company I believe with Sam Raimi involved. Now don’t judge it by the comparison to these two 90’s cult tv shows. I believe it is much better being without a lot of the cheese factor that was in those shows.

This is an actual fantasy adventure/drama that somehow manages to not be serialized. At least it is not directly serialized. They manage to avoid having to stick to the book’s plot line exactly, even adding some additional story threads that I actually enjoy. Sometimes the acting in this show is lacking, but overall it musters enough to get some feeling out of me – sometimes. I really hope this show comes back for a second season.
