Holy shit. Trailer looks potentially good.


...Eh, ok, I was really looking forward to it until I read the differences from the book on wikipedia => http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legend_of_the_Seeker

Things like:
"Richard was not told about the Confessors or the Confessor power. In the TV version, this was one of the first things Richard learned."
"The Book of Counted Shadows was memorized by Richard over a long period of time with the help of his father George Cypher and was subsequently destroyed. In the TV version, the Book was an actual artifact to be fought over."
...Those are pretty massive changes, yo. Although, I guess.. in the scope of the entire series as a whole, and not just the first book, they're not that important and probably shorten events significantly to a more manageable length.

"Every person makes choices as to how they will live," Richard began.
"Evil does not exist independent of man. Men do evil by choice. Choice involves the requirement to think, even if ineffectually. The most basic choice you can make is to think or not to think, to let others do the thinking and tell you what to do, even if they tell you to do evil.
"Wise choices require more, they require rational thinking. Refusal to think rationally affords one the ability to maintain the illusion of knowledge, wisdom, even sanctity while committing evil. If you follow the teaching of others who do your thinking for you and who have you do evil, the innocent victims are harmed just the same as if you choose to harm them yourself.
"Celebrating faith over reason is merely a way of denying what is, in favor of embracing any whim that strikes your fancy.

How did I miss the release? Apparently the last book came out Nov. 13. Ahhh, now to hunt it down and read it.

Here's to hoping the ending's good...
