TV Tuesday- What Now?

Wahey- it’s actually Tuesday this time! As with the last few Tuesdays, I’m participating in Codie’s awesome TV Tuesday meme.

The rules are as follows (because there are always rules):

Choose between these three:

  • Book-to-Movie/TV show adaptation  (have you seen it? If no, do you plan to?)
  • Book you think should be a movie/TV show  (Why?)
  • Movie/TV show that prompted you to read a book?

So what am I doing with my TV time now that Game of Thrones is over? Well, I’m binging an old favourite: The Legend of the Seeker.

What is that? I hear some of you ask. Seriously? That’s rubbish! I hear others say. Well hear me out! While I admit it is an excessively cheesy show, it also happens to be one of the most fun TV shows I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. Yes, as I said, it’s no masterpiece (unlike Game of Thrones) but if you enjoy a bit of a jaunt through a fantasy realm and adventurous storylines- this is a really great series. Plus who doesn’t secretly love a bit of cheese?

Sadly this was cancelled after just two series- but fortunately for me I still have all of Goodkind’s series (that it’s based on) to get through to make up for missing out on the rest of the story! In the meantime- you can check out the trailer here:

So what do you think? Have you seen this series? Will you be giving it a go? Let me know in the comments!

        Well, it’s really… cliche, you know? In my opinion. I mean I remember I couldn’t take book 2 anymore because first of all, there were too many words. Zelazny told a much better story in a novel maybe five times less than Goodkind’s Wizard’s First Rule. And it’s got a Gary Stu as the main character. After I gave up, I stumbled upon Limyaael’s fantasy rant on Goodkind (Google it if you’re interested; I don’t remember if it has big spoilers though) which just laid out everything I found wrong with the series — and more. There are much better fantasy books out there, but everyone’s taste is different, so don’t be too discouraged… I’m sorry, when I don’t like something, it’s REALLY obvious=D

          Ah I understand- I’ve had that problem with fantasy series before :/ Ah awesome- I’m gonna have to check that out! hahaha no that’s no problem- I’m definitely not one to talk- I’m the exact same! I’ll still give it a go, cos I have the first book, but I will bear this in mind and try not to get my hopes up! thanks for the tip!!

    Lol I think it’s rubbish but I love watching it. It’s hard to describe my relationship with this show. Most of it frustrates me but I couldn’t stop watching it and I was upset when it was cancelled.
    I don’t like the books.

    That looks like a really good series!!! plus the guy looks really fit and it doesn’t seem as gory as Game of thrones! A massive bonus!! Wait how do you finish it if there are only 2 series?
