    This is such a majestic show! So what if it can seem cheesy from time to time, what show doesn't? So what if the actors aren't the best, the way they get the job done is more than enough for me. I couldn't do any better, and I admire their skill. So what if it doesn't stay faithful to the book series, the basic story is still practically the same, the wonderful world is the same, and it gives people all the more reason to read the book series. I've heard about this show before the book series, and if it was exactly like the books, I wouldn't be motivated to read them. This huge difference between the show and the book series is what makes it all so much fun. It's like telling the same story, but from different perspectives. And I'm extremely grateful to this show for introducing me to such a wonderful, magical universe and setting me on such an exquisite adventure. If it wasn't for this glorious show, I wouldn't have known about the books, or probably wouldn't have been interested enough to read them in the first place. I can agree that Richard here seems a bit annoying, more of a 21 century guy than a man of medieval times. But you can still enjoy his character and his quirks. This show may not live up to the magic of the books, as so many of you say, but it shines by being just the way it is. And maybe if people would stop taking everything so damn seriously, if they'd just lighten up a bit, and stop being so bitter and judgmental, the show would still be going. I absolutely love this show, watched it like 4 times, because it was just that magical. You get used to the character's quirks, and learn to not let the little flaws ruin the wonders this show provides. It's meant to entertain, not compete with the books.moreless

    Easily one of the best shows ever made. The popularity of this show has only grown over the years, and it's a shame that they are wasting such an amazing franchise by not making more seasons or a movie. The storytelling is fun, mildly campy but also very serious when it counts. Overall, a compelling show that comes about as close to perfect as any show has ever been.

    My question:



    How on Earth could those of you who read the books like or support this show? If you never read the books, ok, I could maybe get it, but if you read the books?



    How? What? A huge part of what makes the Sword of Truth series what it is is the author's intimate love with Objectivism, a concept pretty much thoroughly missing in the tv series. For those of you who say you read the books and like the show, do you even know what Objectivism is? Have you ever pondered the concept of 'rational self-interest?'



    Please, I seriously wonder how someone could read the books and still be so far off the rails, and would love to understand how this happens.
