I HAS NEW FANDOM.  
LEGEND OF THE SEEKER!

You were right, radon_, I was totally hooked from the first episode and now I cannot stop watching. It's an addiction. I am kinda obsessed now. It's just like, so crackalicious yet so fabulously amazing and just so fucking awesome, with amazing females who kick ass and obligatory male shirtlessness, sword fights, the MORD SITHS and the UNASHAMED BDSM and SEXYTIEMS, magic and wizardry and, oh my God. Love! And this show is produced by Disney people! Well, Disney/ABC Domestic Television really, but still. BDSM + Disney, who would have ever thought, eh?

I'm almost done with S1, but I'm just too excited to wait until then to talk about it.

I just, I cannot articulate how much I'm really getting into this show. I normally don't like excessive fantasy-based things, for example The Lord of the Rings is highly confusing for me even with the movies. But Legend of the Seeker? It's like a combination of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter and Star Wars plus with some added crack and badass females all wrapped into one. I think what drew me was definitely the first scene in the pilot because, anything that has female characters in the opening scene just being badass and awesome is worthwhile for me.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS KAHLAN AND HER EQUALLY AWESOME OUTFITS PLZ?! I mean seriously, how majorly amazing is she? Not only is Bridget Regan stunningly beautiful, but she kicks incredible ass and I read an interview that she does pretty much all her own stunts. In that fantabulous outfits, too. Having a girl who can kick multiple guy's asses while dressed up in that is like, uber impressive. AND HER HAIR IS PHENOMENAL OMGWHUT. I WANT. HER. HAIR. FUCK I JUST WANT HER ENTIRE WARDROBE, MY GOD. As you can tell, I absolutely love her. I know I have yet to come across Cara, who everyone in the LotS fandom also loves, and believe me from what I can tell she's just as awesome so I'm looking forward to that. But yes, Kahlan is just, omglove I can't even. ♥

Also Richard, the hero to her heroine of the story. I kinda love him, he's definitely learning and means well, and I love that he's all about helping others in peril and it doesn't matter if it's a whole town or just a single person with shitloads of D'Harans on their tale, he wants to help however he can. That's the pure goodness in his heart and what I find so endearing.

ALSO THE RICHARD/KAHLAN LOVE OMG YES. I mean, definitely with the heeding of the warning about the Confessor's powers and all of that, basically afraid of making Richard her zombie love slave forever, but THEY ARE SO CUTE OMG. *draws hearts all around them*

I love Zedd. I really do, he's all kinds of awesome.

HOLY SHIT I LOVED SEEING THE EPISODE WITH DENNA AND OF COURSE BEING INTRODUCED TO THE AMAZINGLY SCARY BUT AWESOME MORD SITH. AND RICHARD BEING ALL CHAINED AND TORTURED, AND WITH THE ~MAGIC DILDOS~ (aka the AGIELS, OMG!) THE BDSM EPISODE WAS ALL SORTS OF WHOA. LOVELOVELOVELOVE.

The entire atmosphere of this show is just gorgeous. Although, it is filmed in New Zealand so of course the scenery would be gorgeous. I'm not familiar with the books the show is based off of, I know my sister has read them (and doesn't favor the later books because of what the author does to do female characters which is saying to me, pass on that and watch the show instead) but I'm not necessarily one for fantasy books. But the entire story is just enthralling, kind of insane and cracky at times, but intriguing. Some of the episodes can be ridiculous in that fun sense ("Puppeteer" was like, omglolwtf) and some were kind of like flashbacks but had some relevance to the plot ("Home" with Darken Rahl entering Richard's head to get him to give up where they hid the third box which, um, it could be interpreted as slashy in some places because of that I guess, idek) and even really sexy ones like the Mord Sith episode and the one with the previous Seeker's spirit possessing Richard and then the previous Confessor's spirit possessing Kahlan and they have EPIC SEXYTIEMS IN RICHARD AND KAHLAN'S BODIES.

ALSO! SLOW-MOTION ACTION WHEEEEEE! LOVE IT! :DDDDD

I also really enjoy seeing Kahlan's powers whenever she Confesses someone. That's always fun, even if the entire concept is scary that whomever she Confesses they immediately fall in love with her and have to tell the truth and do whatever she says no matter what. It must be a burden for her, the poor dear. But necessary for her destiny and mission with Richard. I also love that she can tell if someone is lying, too. Her "you cannot lie to a Confessor" must be a powerful weapon to get people to answer truthfully, at times. I wish I had that. ;p

And uh, yeah, that's all I kinda wanna say at this moment. More will come when I finish the season and start on the second. I guarantee you.


I AM JUST BESIDE MYSELF RIGHT NOW WITH THIS SHOW. I'VE BEEN DOWNLOADING IT AND WATCHING IT AS I GO AND I JUST, IT IS MY NEW CRACK. I LOVE IT. AND DID I MENTION GIRLS OWNING AND KICKING ASS? BECAUSE THEY DO, LIKE A WHOLE FUCKING LOT.

You think this is sexy? You should read the books. There's even MORE BDSM and girls kicking ass and taking names.

:-D I'm mostly a lurker at your LJ because I love your comments on the fandoms we both watch, but I had to mention the books in case you hadn't heard about them yet. SO GOOD! But stop after the fourth one... it's like Dune, it goes downhill after that.
Renée: Six. Warrior of God.rogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2010 11:54 pm (UTC)
I don't mind you lurking, bb. :) At least I know you're lurking with common interests and not being some creepy stalker. ;p

I've considered reading the books, even if fantasy isn't really my area of reading, but I've heard interesting things about it. But yeah, my sister warned me about the later books about what the author does to the characters and such, so if I do end up reading them I'll keep that in mind to avoid those at all costs.

Believe, you'll fall in love with the show just like I did. It's pretty freaking amazing. And I'll tell you right now, I'm kind of doing my crossover crack!shipping where I want Castiel/Kahlan. I kid you not. ;)
goldenusagigoldenusagi on March 15th, 2010 12:35 am (UTC)
Yes! My sister downloaded Legend of the Seeker and has made me watch it, and it's so fun!
Renée: LotS. Cara.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 12:50 am (UTC)
I really is! My sister has the DVDs but I opted to just download the episodes myself and I just haven't stopped. It's so ridiculously amazing and fun. :D
Shonaille: Aaliyahkalikahuntress on March 15th, 2010 12:52 am (UTC)
I am so freakin' thrilled you are into this show, I love it like whoah and Kahlan/Richard are up there with Dean and Castiel for me. I love them to bits and season two is so much better than season one.:)

Renée: LotS. Kahlan.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 03:29 am (UTC)
Yes! That's what I thought too while watching it, Kahlan/Richard are totally Dean/Castiel. They are all sorts of adorable and I just, oh my God yes. ♥

I'm happy to find another fandom to become obsessed with, since I heard a lot about LotS but didn't have enough time to get around to watching it. Now that I have, I can see why there's so much love for it. It's amazing. And I'm glad to hear that next season is even better. :DDD
jellojelost on March 15th, 2010 01:39 am (UTC)
Aw, man.

I've been meaning to start watching this, as everyone on my flist is raving. But now that you love it? That's it. I'm watching, and I'm taking it to my friends' house so they can watch it too. XD
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 03:25 am (UTC)
Glad I could be a trend-setter for you. ;D

But I think you'll like it. It's a gorgeous show and I was captivated the moment I watched the first episode. Hey, I love me some strong female roles and some great action, and the fact that Richard and Kahlan are so Dean and Castiel, I swear. It's very entertaining and fun, you'll definitely enjoy it. :)))
matchlightfirematchlightfire on March 15th, 2010 04:21 am (UTC)
I could watch this gif all day.

ALL DAY.
Renée: Kahlan. Swept by the wind.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 04:34 am (UTC)
Me too, bb. She's flawless when she fights.

Do you watch Legend of the Seeker? Because I have like, batches of these gifs saved of Kahlah (and various others) kicking ass and taking names. ;)
Tangles: Prettyentangled_now on March 15th, 2010 07:57 am (UTC)
LOL! I love this show shamelessly and indulgently for almost all the same reasons as you. It's so much sexytiems and asskicking fun!
Renée: Kahlan. Following the path.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 11:19 am (UTC)
HEE, IT REALLY REALLY IS! :D IT WOULD BE MY GUILTY PLEASURE, HAD I ANY GUILT WATCHING IT, BUT SINCE I DON'T IT'S JUST FANTASTICALLY AWESOME BECAUSE IT KNOWS WHEN IT'S BEING CRACKY AND IT IS SHAMELESS ABOUT IT TOO! WHICH I LOVE, OF COURSE. ♥

THIS SHOW IS LIKE PRINGLES: YOU CAN'T STOP AT ONE!


(Kahlan in your icon looks like she's going to bust a cheerleading move lol)
Renée: Kahlan. Elegance.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 11:13 am (UTC)
YOU ARE THE MASTER OF CONVERSIONS, BB. :DDD I KINDA LOVE THAT YOU ARE A FANDOM PIMP, LOL!

THE SHOW IS DEFINITELY LIKE PRINGLES! IT'S JUST ADDICTIVE IN THAT WAY, AND I'VE DOWNLOADED EPISODES ONE RIGHT AFTER THE OTHER SO AFTER I FINISH ONE EPISODES I CAN IMMEDIATELY WATCH THE NEXT WITHOUT HAVING TO WAIT FOR IT TO FINISH DOWNLOADING. I HAS A SYSTEM, BB!

I JUST, THERE'S SO MUCH LOVE WITH THIS SHOW. I CAN'T EVEN. ♥

ALSO, YAY FOR GIFS! (which I don't care some are from S2 which I haven't gotten to yet, they are so ~pretttyyyy~ and awesome)

Sooooo...you're not keen then?

LOL

I completely agree with everything you've said here! this show is amde of awesome.
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 08:28 pm (UTC)
LOL! XD

It is made of awesome, I'm just surprised I didn't get into it sooner. Then again, I was more preoccupied with other fandoms and me + too many fandoms = s'plosion. I think that's why I kinda like having certain hiatuses happen so I can discover other shows. ;)
M: LoTS BAMCspankulert on March 15th, 2010 01:37 pm (UTC)
Isn't it the most awesome thing to ever have awesomed? On this show, MELON-SLICING LOOKS EPIC. And the women just keep kicking ass in all sorts of ways \o/

Kahlan's hair is on my #2 spot of coveted hair OF ALL TIME. Unf!

I posted vid recs today actually(Gods, this show gives good vid!) but they're both s2. Follow my tag and I've recced two others that are s1 though, and they are stellar :D
Renée: LotS. Kahlan.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 08:35 pm (UTC)
MELON-SLICING IS DEFINITELY DONE IN EPIC WAYS. :D

I love that we have women kicking serious ass, because there aren't a lot of female characters in shows like that these days. Which is...kind of sad, when you think about it. It makes you pine for having another Buffy Summers somewhere. But of course, we get Kahlan and various others who are more than willing to risk themselves in battle (and looking fabulous while doing so).

KAHLAN'S HAIR IS JUST SO FUCKING FABULOUS I CAN'T EVEN.

I'll definitely look at recs. :D

I LOVE LEGEND OF THE SEEKER.

I LOVE IT ALMOST (ALMOST!) LIKE I LOVE SUPERNATURAL AND THAT'S SAYING A LOT OKAY. I JUST AHHHH LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH OH MY GOD I CAN'T EVEN. I'M SORT OF A LITTLE BIT IN LOVE WITH RICHARD AND KAHLAN BECAUSE HOW CAN THEY BE SO AWESOME I DON'T EVEN. WHAT.

but what i love most of all is the crack. ♥ idk, it just. it's just a genuinely fun show, you know? you enjoy it. you have fun watching it. you lol at the characters and the characters actually laugh at themselves with you, and that's not something you see in a lot of shows, but they do here, and man, how awesome is that? i've still only seen, like, five episodes (i think?) but i have to catch up one of these days because SO. FREAKING. AWESOME.

also, i was so excited about it when i heard the female character was the protector, because it's always the other way around but NOT THIS TIME, OH NO. AWESOME SHOW IS AWESOME.
Renée: Kahlan. Swept by the wind.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 09:19 pm (UTC)
YAY MORE PEOPLE TO SQUEE WITH OVER MY NEWLY DISCOVERED LOVE FOR THIS SHOW! \O/

KAHLAN AND RICHARD ARE DEFINITELY SO MUCH LOVE AND I ADORE THEM BOTH, SEPARATELY AS INDIVIDUAL CHARACTERS OR JUST THEM BEING TOGETHER IDC THEY ARE ADORABLE AND AWESOME. ♥

The show not taking itself seriously is perhaps the best aspect. It can be fun and completely silly, but the show knows it and does it purposefully and it's still really enjoyable because of that. The amount of crack can be so much fun when not done in a serious manner, and that's what LotS does. And successfully, too! :D

also, i was so excited about it when i heard the female character was the protector, because it's always the other way around but NOT THIS TIME, OH NO. AWESOME SHOW IS AWESOME.

THIS, OMGYES THIS EXACTLY. This is why I think that Legend of the Seeker kind of achieves where SPN utterly fails when approaching female characters. Where do you see any show in particular where a female role isn't just one of the leading roles but is the protector of the male hero? Who, when battling enemies, will certainly need help but not to be rescued because she can hold her own perfectly fine. You hardly see roles like that for women anymore, and we're in like what, the 21st Century? We need more shows out there that present this kind of image for young women, like how Buffy the Vampire Slayer did years ago.

BECAUSE FEMALES LIKE THIS? ARE SO FUCKING FIERCE. WE NEED MORE KAHLANS IN THE WORLD, KTHX.

Jane: slayerkeykook16 on March 15th, 2010 09:22 pm (UTC)
*amused* I guess you like LOTS, then.

(Wait, just WAIT, until you get to the episode you saw the end of and get actual context. There will be new levels of cracktastic.)
Renée: LotS. Cara.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 09:30 pm (UTC)
IT IS BOTH YOU AND RADON_'S FAULT! AND I AM FOREVER THANKFUL FOR IT! :DDD

(Will probably finish the rest of S1 today, if possible)
Clarryhoo: lots cara notheoryofevolutionnomorefrostbite on March 15th, 2010 09:53 pm (UTC)
YO, I RLY RLY LOVED SEASON ONE.

And then I saw Season Two, and the HOTASS BAMFERY AND GIRLLOVE that is Kahlan/TV Girlfriend</strike>CARA... and Season One paled in comparison.

It was like the show actually BEGAN when Cara stepped her sexy ass onto the scene and snarked.
Renée: LotS. Cara.rogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2010 10:59 pm (UTC)
I can't wait to see Cara. I've only seen her in some clips and in gifs/icons, but I can immediately tell I am going to fall in love with her. ;D

Renée: Kahlan. Elegance.rogueslayer452 on March 16th, 2010 12:58 am (UTC)
I AM JUST SO THRILLED TO SEE MORE PPL ON MY FLIST THAT LOVE THE SHOW AS MUCH AS I DO. :DDD I COULDN'T STOP WATCHING AFTER SEEING THE FIRST FEW EPISODES BUT NOW? I REALLY CAN'T STOP WATCHING BECAUSE I AM SO ENTHRALLED WITH IT. IT'S CRACK.

GOD, I DON'T WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT NOT GETTING RENEWED. D: I WANT THE AWESOMENESS OF LOTS TO CONTINUE!
philstar22: LOTS: Rahl season 2philstar22 on March 16th, 2010 02:31 am (UTC)
This show is the most amazing thing ever! So much equal opportunity pretty. I'm a huge Rahl fangirl myself, but Kahlan is so amazing. Girls can't help but be totally gay for her. And Richard is adorable and he and Kahlan better eventually get together.
Renée: Kahlan. Following the path.rogueslayer452 on March 16th, 2010 02:58 am (UTC)
Oh, definitely with the equal opportunity of the pretty, and I love that. :D

Kahlan is just, unf. Bridget Regan is turning out to be the Tricia Helfer of the show for me, I've fallen in love with her. I've watched some interviews with her and she's just super adorable and she plays such a fierce character. And I can't wait to see Cara, because I've heard amazing things about her (and I have this thing with the Mord Sith, ;D)

Richard/Kahlah are too cute together, omg. ♥
