Legend of the Seeker
It's finally on its way, kids. A mini-series based on the amazing Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind was announced in July of 2006, and it's finally coming through. According to the promo during the Cubs game tonight, the series begins November 1, 2008 on WGN for those that get it. According to the website, the first season will consist of 22 one-hour episodes with a two-hour series primiere.
As someone that read and loved the entire series, I cannot wait until the show starts. Of course, at the same time, I'm scared of watching it get butchered on screen, but it's being directed by Sam Raimi (the guy that directed Spiderman) who had to do a lot of convincing for Goodkind to let him make the series. I'm choosing to be optimistic. It's going to be on Saturdays apparantly, which I'm not a fan of, but I guess they have that much confidence in the show.
So go get started reading the books, because you know they're always better than the film version.
