    Mirror was a superb and very entertaining episode of Legend of the Seeker and I enjoyed watching this episode because there was a lot of action, drama, intrigue, character growth, and plot development. This episode reminded me of its creators roots in Hercules and Xena. A little body snatching definitely makes for a good episode and I think this was definitely just a side story but added some value to the series over all. I particularly enjoyed the ending of this episode where every thing seems to be sorted out. I look forward to watching the next episode of Legend of The Seeker!!!!!!!moreless
  • Incredibly funny!

    I really loved this episode! With all the violence and heartache and drama going on before, "Mirror" really was a great comic relief. I admit, even though of course I realized, that something was wrong in the behaviour of "Richard" and "Kahlan", I didn't find out that they weren't real until it was finally revealed and that was a great twist! There were so many priceless scenes, like "Kahlan" luring Richard into bathing with her, or "Richard" flirting with the gay warden or the way fake "Kahlan" and "Richard" behaved, when they pretended to be the real ones, to get the truth out of Biancha. What I loved most about the episode though was, how incredibly funny Craig Horner and Bridget Regan were. They've proven, that they've got quite a good timing for humour as well and you could tell, they enjoyed themselves very much in all of this.moreless

    This was one of my favorite episodes! At first, I was like WHAT!?!?!? Then when I watched it more, it made more sense. Frytss and Clyre were hilarious. Although in the show they were more funny when they we "Richard" and "Kahlan" than when they were themselves. Gwildor and Bianca were funny to. At the end, Bruce Spence did a great job acting like Bianca. This was one of my favorite episodes! At first, I was like WHAT!?!?!? Then when I watched it more, it made more sense.

    At first I wondered what was going on, why they were acting so oddly, but then I realised that something just wasn't right.



    I was kind of easy to predict what it was all going to be about, but I still found the storyline intriguing.



    I thought this episode was great, however I don't like the fact that they left the barmaid and the other guy to their fate.



    They know that they will most likely be tortured by the daharans, yet they don't seem to care about that.



    What happened to the ever so true and honourable seeker that never let anyone get hurt.



    It was still a great episode, but this brought it down a few notches in my opinion.moreless
  • A humoristic episode as an intermission before closure of the season begins to be seen through the plotline. An enjoyable one as well!

    8.5
    This was the necessary light intermission before the heavy action seriously begins. And I had no objection to it, I laughed my way through most of it and thought the idea of completely demystifying Kahlan and Richard was a good idea at this point. They come off as extremely solemn and perhaps even rigid at times, due to their characters, so it was interesting and funny to watch them behave completely out of character.



    Of course, I knew right away something was wrong and that this wasn't the real Seeker and the real Kahlan, Richard would never even consider looking at anyone else besides Kahlan, let alone sleep with them. So I just enjoyed the hilariousness of the situation and the fact that the actors were given the opportunity to play something totally different. And, of course, Zedd is back!! Hurray!!moreless
