Anyone watching it? It's a fantasy TV series based on the Sword of Truth books by Terry Goodkind. I've only read the first two. This makes me want to read all of them.

The plot begins close enough to the first book, where Richard Cypher begins his quest to kill Darken Rahl, but soon the writers take a bit of liberty, diverting from what's canon so they can have one "quest" per episode. It works, it's not entirely bad. Besides, whenever they do get back to the source material, at least you're assured of a good foundation.

Special effects range from meh to quite-bad-for-a-Western-production, but I'm willing to look past that because of Bridget Regan, who plays Kahlan Amnell.

Aside from being a total ass-kicker, she's also frighteningly hot. Girl is like the new Kate Beckinsale or something. Honestly, sometimes, she's so achingly beautiful on camera (her eyes are awesome) that it's hard to watch without getting affected. Laughing But then the camera angles to a sweet, sweet shot of her cleavage, and suddenly you're ready to watch again.

Like this.

Currently on Season 2, I'm hoping there's a third one to come.

I think it's airing on Studio 23, but I'm not sure.

Yeah I definitely have to tell you guys, this was my first fantasy/romance novel ever; I read it back when I was in elementary, way before I read Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. This may explain some of my attachment to the story, especially that of Richard and Kahlan.

After finishing episode 10 of season 2, I can also definitely say the acting's getting better. Lol

Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so. A whole LJ community is Gay for Kahlan, it seems.

Jesus Christ. This girl's so unbelievably hot. She haunts me.

Hottest chick I've ever seen, hands down (being male and having internet, I've seen many).

Blue eyes. Perfect face. Nice boobs. GREAT Legs. Isn't afraid of a little weight. Isn't trying hard to be sexy. *shivers*

Watch the vids, they're... time well spent.

Yeah lovely eyes and hair (and boobs) while looking so effortless. Tongue The sheen on her legs in the AOTS interview was just hypnotizing. Laughing

The show's been cancelled (although the fans are trying to do something about that), so they're just finishing up season two.

This is what you call going out with a bang.

Tabrett Bethell is a total Aussie hottie. I actually hope the fan campaign works, because damn this show is eye candy - if it's not cleavage in corsets it's sexy blondes in red leather.

So long, Seeker. You were epic while it lasted.

No more Bridget Regan and Tabrett Bethell... at least for a while. Sad
