Day 2: "Not watching this? Then you're an idiot."  
Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching



Legend of the Seeker



Fantasy action/adventure drama, based on the best-selling Sword of Truth book series by Terry Goodkind, Legend of the Seeker has a combination of a fantastical plot with many enjoyable aspects to it. I define it as a mixture of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Star Wars, with a little bit of Xena too, where it's just a fun and entertaining kind of show that doesn't take itself seriously and I think everyone can enjoy it. There's nothing complicated about it, as sometimes fantasy-based universes can be, and every single character is just likable and just as enjoyable as well. In fact, this is that one show where I have absolutely no complaints regarding the characters or the writing of these characters whatsoever. They are all so fascinating in their own way, and each of them get their time in the spotlight.

I recently just got into the show myself, but I can honestly say that I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. It's just that amazing of a show. I haven't been disappointed in any episode or character or the writing. It's just such a rarity to find shows that I have absolutely no qualms about. That alone should tell you that this is worth watching.

Honestly, I could talk and gush about this show for hours and hours if I could, so I'll just simplify it for you:

Why should more people watch this show? It's a fun, lighthearted fantasy-drama with lots of action and adventure, sword-fighting sequences, a rich fantastical world with even richer characters and storyline/plots, strong women characters that kick ass and take names quite frequently, and the two main female characters are the protectors of the main male protagonist; there's magic, mystery, character development, an epic forbidden romance that is just too adorable and sexy all at the same time. The fact that the show is filmed in NEW ZEALAND which gives us this breathtaking scenery and setting for such a whimsical and magical atmosphere. From the costumes to the actors and the story, the fact that we don't have to worry about cliffhangers because they have a plan on knowing where they want to go with a season and its particular storyline is what makes me confident in saying that people will enjoy the show. Also yes, there are plenty of sexytiems in this show; they don't skimp on bringing us the hotness and the sexy and sexual innuendos. Including BDSM-like torture, the Mord'Sith agiels that look like dildos, and tons of gratuitous revealing skin shots.

There's also indirect femslash UST subtext:



Along with actual femslash within text:



It still tickles me that this was produced by Disney, heh.

Not to mention, have you seen how gorgeous it is? I mean, damn. The visuals alone can just be stunning as hell. The colors and the slow-motion action just adds to it. *____*


(note: Kahlan's hair is epic and fierce, trufax)


I definitely do recommend this show intensely. Now I say more people should start watching it is because there's also the news that it's been canceled, which is a terrible shame in and of itself, but I feel it is my duty as a newly converted fan to convert others to see just how utterly amazing LOTS truly is and join the cause to getting it renewed. Some think it's a long-shot, but for more Seeker we got to have something. We got to have faith in these things, you know? Besides. Anyone that hasn't heard or seen this show is obviously missing out.

Long story short: WATCH LEGEND OF THE SEEKER NOW BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME LIKE WHOA AND YOU WILL LOVE IT IMMEDIATELY LIKE I HAVE. IF YOU'RE TIRED OF YOUR SHOWS DISAPPOINTING YOU FEAR NOT, THIS ONE WON'T AND IT JUST IS SO FUCKING GORGEOUS WITH PRETTY PEOPLE WITH PRETTIER HAIR AND AWESOME FIGHTING AND JUST, YEAH. 'NUFF SAID. ♥


Masterlist of days here.

On a related note, I'm nervous about watching the latest episode because the finale is next weekend and I want to watch it, because it'll be epic, yet I don't because I want to preserve the amazing awesomeness the show has provided (in the short time I've come to be really addicted to it). Why oh why are my good television shows abandoning me? ;__;

Thanks for doing such a great post about this show. I am already a fan, but it is great to see others doing these sort of journal articles to spread the word about the show...it seriously is ONLY lack of marketing that has caused low ratings. Out of 19 people I have introduced to the show in real life, 17 love it. The numbers speak for themselves.

Now all we have to do is convince another network that there is still money to be made from this show and that new viewers are discovering it every day :)
